Do you have any of the fast acting meds such as Xanax, Ativan or Klonopin you might use to calm yourself? If not, you might want to talk to your doc about one of those for those bad days. Good luck!

Thanks - no i don't have any meds - because of my obsessions (typically harmful ones) i never wanted meds as I am afraid it might "alter my brain" - sounds so stupid to type it out, but when I was going to therapy, I never tried any - when I had surgery once and had to take percocets, it made me feel awful and I thought I would go crazy so i stopped taking them and just dealt with the pain.
it sux and overall I can handle it, just get a few bad moments that creep in still!!
