Well, this could be a big long deep post. But it's not. Uncertainty is difficult. I need to work on that. Yep, uncertainty. Shudder.


  1. Here here! I am with you on that one! If I could find a way to live my life fully despite the anxiety I feel over the uncertainty in my life (especially related to my OCD fears) - I think I would be living successfully. Haven't figured it out yet though. :o(

  2. I found this site through a google search. I hope someone respondes to me. I think I have OCD. I have never been diagnosed but I would love some feedback please. I hear this easy diagnosed cases of people washing their hands multiple times and locking the door several times... but mine is not like that.

    I have obsessive thoughts and perfectionism. If something bothers me (sort of sets a trigger) I cannot let go of the thought. I will play it over and over in my head. The thought will completely consume me... for hours, even days!
    This is just one example, but it also effects several other areas of my life. The one that concerns me the most is with my child. I cannot get into mom "play date" settings. I have a two year old. I will hold him to a standard... and cannot get over it if he does not meet my standard. I find myself constantly disappointed with him. I feel guilty but I cannot help it. If other kids do better... I am almost furious. I really worry he may sense this and it may really effect him. I try self talk and cannot move past it. I'll just rant in my head for hours. Another example of a thought that I cannot get past.

    I am so frustraiting! Im mad at myself. Something is wrong with me. I set this thought and expectations... and I obsess with them. I can convince myself after touching something gross; Ill convince myself that I can feel my finger burning. These are just a few things. Do I have OCD? What can I do about this???

  3. Hi, anonymous.
    It would be very difficult, if not impossible, to know just from a description whether this is OCD. I would suggest trying to talk to a therapist about it. If you suspect OCD, perhaps start with the International OCD Foundation's providers database. Since most of these people work regularly with OCD, they would hopefully be able to help you decide if this is what you're dealing with . Good luck!
