Hello - I've had panic / ocd for about 9 years now and overall things go well, but since Saturday, I've noticed an increase in panic and being very sad. I typically am not a sad person and I just feel like crying alot. Not sure if others out there have OCD, but then I obsess that my sadness must mean I am suicidal and then I get panic and overwhelmed with that thought. I have a good job and I love my family and I get so scared I could lose everything if I can't feel "normal".
I sympathize w/ anyone who has anxiety problems. It is such a debilitating disorder to have and thru meds and therapy you can live a great life, but when i get into these setbacks it seems I can't focus on anything except the bad part of ocd / panic.
If anyone else has similar stories, please feel free to write back.
