I have both ocd and anxiety. Sometimes fearing everything all the time just makes me mad at everything and everyone. I just get upset without really knowing why. I end up becoming insecure with myself and  frustrated to the point where I cant be around anyone without the fear of just exploding. Im very sensitive and I have trust issues with everyone. I just want to scream sometimes. I try to talk with others with ocd but it seems that everyone on the internet is more interested in seeing people's pictures than actually helping the other out. just my experience so far. im on yahoo and would like to talk to anyone who has similar ocd and anxiety problems. anyone else hear that thinks they are going crazy ? I want to have a normal life or at least try. I  have ocd with numbers, checking, clocks, touching things, cleaning,worrying what people think of me all the time, getting bad moods alot, etc. I need someone to relate to me. I just feel like my life is out of control.

When my anxiety was really bad I got irritated with people very easily (especially those closest to me). If they would forget to do something I asked - no matter how minor - I would take it as a personal insult, like I wasnt important enough for them to remember. And I always used to worry about what people thought of me. And yes, at times I did feel like I was going crazy (the panic attacks would do that).

Therapy (CBT, relaxation) and meds turned my life around. I could not beleive how uptight and what a real bit## I had been! Through CBT I was able to change alot of things/habits and the meds made it easier. Relaxation techniques helped also. You will get plenty of support here.

How long have you been suffering? Do you take any meds?

Hello bloomingskyee
Welcome to HW were happy you have joined us here. You don't have to worry about sharing pics of yourself because were all here to listen and to help each other.
The days you are describing I had one yesterday getting mad about everything and everything I tried to do turned into crap so I finelly decited to go to bed at 1:30 in the afternoon so I didn't have to see or deal with anyone. I woke up at 5:30 pm and hubby was home from work and just him asking me if I was ok was enough to set me right back in the mood I was in before I layed down.
I do watch myself very closely so I don't snap at people specially people that I love and are concerned about my health. Your not alone in this hun so please keep posting so we can all get to know each other better.
I have an illness, My illness don't have me.
Being happy doesnt mean everything's perfect.It means you've decided to see beyound the imperfrctions!God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but HE did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears & light for the way

I have had depression/ocd since age 9 ( 24). I do see a therapist but it doesnt really help me that much. Im afraid to try new meds because I have had bad experiences in the past with side effects or the meds would just stop working. and the anti-psychotic drugs are dangerous and I have tried I think every anti-depressant thats out there. I try to ignore my ocd but it gets difficult.

anxiety can cause anger and rage but this is rare I would suggest an anger managment course

anxiety sufferers never go crazy, it just seems that way sometimes yeah

OCD is classed as an anxiety disaorder so needless to say, anything that reduces the anxiety and stress also reduces the OCD

Maybe you should consider trying a different therapist if the one you have now is not helping.

Just like the fears, we have to work at not letting the anger and frustration take hold in our minds. Try distraction - deliberately calling a halt to the negative thoughts and focusing on something else. Have you been working on CBT with your therapist?

I agree with Karen as well as harry

EVERYNIGHT beofre going to bed I wash floor ith pine sol and again in the morning and as well EVERYTIME I go out door
Normal was here ( mod on here ) for a visit and she got to see my OCD up close n personal
I use one ashtray all day long mind you it cant have more than 2 butts in it and wiped out ......
I have a steadfast routine and IF anyone messes with it I have big anxiety issues
I am working thru this with CBT and getting better
I could and would not go to bed with a dish even silverware in sink I am able to at least leave a spoon now
Its not a biggie but for me it is a giant step
All my nic nacs are balanced as well as pictures actually everything
I see this starting with my teen and I got it from my mom so
Yes it is great to be clean but heck I have to stop or I will have a heart attack over a bleeding crumb on the floor
My yahoo is up under my name
