    Unhappy intrusive thoughts,anxiety and hyperscrupulosity?

    Hi, i am 24/F and have been suffering from anxiety and depression for a couple of years now. I seem to have OCD, constant repetitive irrational thoughts and hyperscrupulosity after doing some research and seeing a physiatrist this is what it seems to be to me.

    i canít shake these obsessive compulsive irrational thoughts and its really getting me down and im not living a normal care free life like i used to. im not even sure if the repetitive events/images in my head really happend or if my mind is just making these up to make me feel bad and guilty over somthing i either didnt do or shouldnt feel bad about. for years ive had this type of ocd and other types of ocd but its become worse. this one irrational thought has been with me and haunting me for over 2 years now. and i dont know where it has come from. im to terrified to talk to a therapist about it as i feel they would think im a freak and a bit sick. but im not. im nothing like my thoughts. i opend up to a physiatrist once and tought i had got rid of the thought for good but its back. i feel like i have to repeat in detail the offensive event (real or not) to the therapist just to make them understand what this thought is and to gain some sort of relese from this ofeensive thought by sharing every detail with the therapist.
    i just want a clear head again and to be anxiety free. Iím sick off these uncontrollable panic attacks. its effecting my health and whole life! and im in permenant fear that this will never leave my head....a evil shadow for life clinging on to me

    Hey whats up? I can kinda see where you are getting at! I think the thing that helped me most is changing my diet and exercising. and perhaps you should TRY meditation. there is science behind it that it DOES help us control our emotions.

    As far as your irrational thoughts. try this. whenever you feel an irrational thought just remember that it's IRRATIONAL! if you know it's irrational then why let it bother you!? For example I was upset/mad/sad/depressed/anxious my boyfriend didn't text me back all night. I calmed myself down and remembered he loves me. If not then haha i deserve to be happy and i'll find another man. but i'm getting to the point that i've had irrational thoughts. I'm not sure where you are getting at with yours but please remember you DESERVE to be happy. Tell your brain/body that your in control and you deserve to be happy. try to stop negative thoughts. and if you have irrational thoughts then remember that they are irrational so why try to rationalize irrational thoughts? we all go somewhat crazy in the head where we just can't stop worrying or thinking. basically it's being a drama queen :P. You are suffering from one great poison of the mind called "delusion". read Buddha's brain (not a religious book). but basically delusion you are dramatizing events that have happend or yet to happen and you imagine them and replay them suffering and suffering. you play mini movies in your head of events of either the past or future and make things feel worse than what they really are. But for the most part the way to deal with this is to live in the present. i'm not even talking about day by day. i'm talking about the present NOW moment. you are sitting here reading this and alive. why worry yourself with bad vicious thoughts?
