My husband HATES the TV shows I watch...I love to watch all the shows about hoarding, OCD, mental issues, (I used to watch baby shows) ((not anymore)). Tonight I have watched a marathon of VH1's OCD show. I noticed tonight that all of these people suffered a great loss in their lives. Some it was a loss of innocence through sexual abuse and others lost family members.
Bottom line: I will do everything in my power not to be one of them!
Let's face it when you lose something so precious in your life you feel like you have lost complete control. I can see how OCD would give you the feeling of control. I think that my grief counseling and support group really help me not become OCD.
Yes, I take 3 different kind of anti-depprsants and 2 anxiety pills...but, I am hoping not to be here forever.
I have set goals after my loss...my first was not to become bitter with my life. I think this will be my second...don't go off the deep end...
