Obsessing over past events

I've been severely obsessing over stuff that's happened in the past lately and can't seem to get the therapists tools for CBT working, my brain just is not cooperating lately.

I've got a few more months before I can "re-apply" for going back there (he works with a mental health charity and when I was doing better and got discharged he said to give it six months before contacting the charity again)

I don't want to be trying to see a actual professional outside of mental health support charities because of bad experiences previously with the ones outside of charities.

idk why I'm posting this ............ I guess I just need to "voice" it somewhere.

Re: Obsessing over past events

You posted this probably because sharing relax you.

Maybe you would remember, i opened a post about my obsessive thoughts.
I was reading about obsessive compulsive disorder on the internet , i saw ignoring obsession makes it worse or pressuring it, so i talked to that person again about the topic that i made obsession. My obsessive thoughts disappeared after talking long with that person.

I really dont have an idea how you can go over ( i mean face it out) events that happened in the past. But it really helped me a lot. you may try to do similar thing

SSRI or SNRI would work well for your situation.
Also sharing like now may help you.

Last time obsession created a big problem for me during autumn, i made my lessons,exams etc. a obsession and it got out of control, it was terrible , sleeping rhytm disorder occured that time also.

Lustral(SSRI) helped me a lot for recovering on autumn

Re: Obsessing over past events

My experience has been that professionals are only in it for the money.

That's why I don't trust them.

Time I was out of here for the night.

Might post some of my memories tomorrow. I'll see how I feel.

I am not doctor but SSRI/SNRI are really helpful when it comes to annoying/repeating thoughts
If you dont respond to theraphies , medicine would be helpful for you.

I hope you feel peaceful soon.

Re: Obsessing over past events

In my experience the best therapists are the ones with the least letters after their name. It seems the more degrees they get the more jaded and uninterested they seem to be.(With exceptions, of course.)

I have had great counseling from beginning Psych students thru a local university. You might ask around at your local colleges, or look at charitable organizations like churches, shelters etc. for some answers..call and ask them if they know of any free or low cost counseling available, or do they have any recommendations for you.

Currently I am getting my meds and therapy from a local clinic. It is not the ideal situation, but it works for me at the moment.

That serenity prayer thing also might be handy for you when you start to think about old hurts, etc. Change what you can change, and let go of what you can't. You can't do much about anything that has already happened, you can't change it either. All you can do is make amends if possible or needed, and commit to not do those things or put yourself in those situations in the future. Not knowing what you are obsessing about specifically I may be generalizing a bit too much.

Best of luck...you'll pull through!
