As twisted as this might sound..Sometimes I 'play' with mine and see where it's trying to take me exactly.

Even as a child I'd have it so bad that I'd get physically ill. My nerves were so bad I'd vomit. I was told my dad had the same thing when he was my age then. Must be passed down or something?

Chilledice, I don't have a dang thing to offer except to keep you in my thoughts and tell you that I'm trusting the HP to get you through this.

It is OUTSTANDING that you're not drinking about it!

Kinda like a scary video game.. I don't do it often but, if I'm bored I'll sometimes 'run with it' for a bit..Then do something to 'shut it off' but, what if it doesn't shut off? Like I said..Twisted.

My advice is never hold anything back from your Dr, Chilled.

Even if you find it embarrassing I bet they've dealt with OCD before and will be able to help...or direct you to someone who can

Just have a fear of being locked up but I think that's just anxiety speaking.

Yeah..Be honest with your Dr.. They're not going to lock you up for having a 'running mind' unless..it's running to some VERY dark places. Which mine has while heavily intoxicated. Not harming other people but, just wanting the 'spinning thoughts' to stop by any means including my own death. To be honest I'm too selfish a person to intentionally kill/harm myself..but, I have thought of death as an 'escape' in the past.That's where my medication/plan comes in. Hang in there! You are very much not alone!

I have such bad anxiety at times I would struggle for several hours to get out from under the covers and into the bathroom. My last relapse was caused because I wasn't properly treating my anxiety.

Now, I'm living on a sailboat with plans, should everything pan out, continue saving money to move across the country and going back to school.

See this cute little dachshund in my signature? He is my service dog and alerts me to take my anxiety medication before I feel an attack coming on. He actually will paw my leg or kneecap very deliberately until he sees that I have listened to him. Now that I take it early enough my meds can fully treat my extreme anxiety.

It's been five years since I've had a drink, and I consider Zero not just part of my medical treatment plan but also a contributing part of my recovery.

Please don't feel embarrassed, Chilledice. I am autistic and have extreme OCD and other severe pyschological issues which has gotten better through therapy and medication. I agree with Bunny that there is nothing wrong with taking meds to help. It's certainly not your fault and you are not alone. I spent so much time self-medicating with alcohol that I never confronted these problems head-on until recently. I was only making things worse by using drink as a crutch and it just made me more anxious and sick. Wishing you all the best!
