Okay, does it ever feel like the world is just conspiring against you? I am diagnosed with OCD and have had some really bad periods with it. I'm on Prozac and have been doing well for over a year. In September my therapist and I even decided that I would try taking some time off from therapy because I was doing so well. I have had several stress-provoking events in my life since then, including starting a second job (going well, but change is always stressful, not to mention the added workload) and some damage from hurricane Sandy. I have been handling that all pretty well, though. Sunday marked the 1st anniversary of our beloved dog's death last year, but again, I handled it. I was home sick today which is never a great thing for my mental status, but I was just feeling really crappy this morning physically. So, basically I was primed for an OCD attack and of course, something just had to happen this afternoon to trigger my OCD and now I am an anxious wreck. I don't want to go into the specifics, because I don't think that's the healthiest thing for me. I am trying to keep busy, but don't want to push myself too hard since I'm not feeling well and I really want to go back to work tomorrow. I'm worried that I won't sleep tonight, which will just make things worse. I hate feeling like this and I am worried that it will spiral into another really bad period. If I sleep well tonight and keep busy tomorrow I may be able to head off a major episode, but I don't know. I'm thinking I will call my therapist tomorrow if I still feel like this may turn really bad. Ugh. I hate this. I just wanted to reach out to others who might understand.
