What will help me get through a day?

HOCD has forced me to waste a lot of my life on thoughts that are not true. It took me years to figure out that there was even a condition that existed. I just stopped taking meds for my condition which worked fine but had all sorts of other side effects which I don’t want to deal with anymore. I recently walked into my bosses office and accidently touch his hand when he handed me a piece of paper and bang my fear of him thinking that I am gay started immediately. I was worried to look him in the eye in fear that he would think I was gay. I left his office and my mind started going in over drive. I was afraid to walk by his office and certainly thinking of him work drives my anxiety through the roof. I just want it to stop and it won’t. I do not want to go on meds again because I feel more like myself that I have in years. Any thoughts or advice or similar experiences. Hoping that chating with others will help.

Hi Notperfect, Since you

Hi Notperfect,

Since you don't want to go back on medication (which I understand, as the side effects can be troubling) then you may want to consider therapy. While there are differenct approaches to treating OCD, one of the most effective is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

If you have the resources, I suggest you find a therapist who either specializes in the treatment of OCD (or anxiety disorders in general) or who at least has a lot of experience in treating this disorder. It will take time and work on your part, but it can help you reduce the symptoms and bring them under control.

I hope this helps and I wish you the best.
