Understanding your OCD

Understanding your OCD

Photo by  Camila Quintero Franco  on  Unsplash Obsessive-compulsive disorder is one of the most common disorders 1 in 40 adults in the U.S. is said to have it or have had it. We recognise OCD by one of two traits. Repetitive, intrusive, uncontrollable thoughts or urges also known as obsessions; and repetitive behaviour or mental acts that a person feels compelled to act upon, known as compulsions. Say I was to go for a drive and when I got home from that drive I started to experience images that I have run over a fox on that drive. It then repeats this image in my mind, becoming an obsession. Because of this thought that I have run over a fox. I drive back along the route that I just took looking for the dead fox. I know however that these images are not real but I am comforted because I checked by re-visiting that route. Here, my uncontrollable thoughts or obsession that I have hit a fox with my car on the way home, has led me to act on compulsion and drive the route again. But of exa

101 of Psychosis

Photo by  Elijah O'Donnell  on  Unsplash So just had another episode, or this may be your first. It's time to take a step back, the first thing you need to know don't dwell on the past. Yeah, you painted the walls with mayonnaise and you walked into the Olive Garden thinking you're famous or maybe you had a horrible time and everything that you stood for got shaken into another world. After all, you weren’t in reality. Here is a bit of history for you, back in the Victorian times, Psychiatrist were called alienist because they thought mental illness had alienated you from yourself. In the spirit of keeping things historical, Your Psychosis wasn't you, it was your alien. You didn't do that your alien did that. You have to come to terms with the fact that you cannot change being mentally ill. The disorder exists within you. It has done and it will always be there in some way or another.

Formication — What is it and why do I have it

Formication — What is it and why do I have it

Photo by  Zach Lezniewicz  on  Unsplash F ormication is a  psychosis  where the person experiences tactile hallucinations. These tactile hallucinations take place on the body in the form of bugs. This psychosis is unique and can lead to delusions, where the person believes that they have been infected with insects. I have these experiences; they’re very distressing to me. It’s not just that you feel an insect crawling across you. It’s also the belief these insects can hurt you. Maybe they’ll be crawling in your ears; perhaps they’re crawling in your heart. If you google formication, you will find heaps of people asking why they are experiencing these hallucinations, and the answer is usually anxiety. They should check these feelings out by with the GP and any scratches that the problem has caused you. Psychosis If you want to know what psychosis is  click here .

Hearing voices and how to deal with them

Hearing voices and how to deal with them

Voices, the word that people shy away from telling you because they fear your reaction. Voices are hard to deal with, whether they be internal or external, or whispering or across the room. Some people love them, but most find them scary. Whether you think they’re the devil or believe, they can see the future, they’re not an experience most people get.  My friend hears them all the time, but I luckily only hear them when I’m ill. Mine are both cross the room and whispering. They usually lead to delusions. So what advice can I give you? Well, that depends. Are the voices brief, or are they prolonged? If they are fleeting, just take a deep breath, kindly ask the person you're with to stop speaking. I know it can cause distress but say to yourself, these voices are not real, I know they’re not real. If they still continue, go to the bathroom and drink a glass of water. Focus on the water, ask yourself questions about the water. For example, feel the cold (or warm) water run do

Psychosis: psyche, soul and mind

Psychosis: psyche, soul and mind

[full-post] Psychosis, commonly referred to as a loss of reality. And doctors around the world can't decide what qualifies you for having it. Do we refer to the DSM-5 or the ICD 11? Does borderline psychosis count? What about schizotypal? Is it derived from a personality disorder, or can it be standalone? Why are people so scared of this psychosis? So many questions go thoughts through my head, is that normal? Am I normal? Psychosis affects 6% of the population. Some people that have it may never know that they have had it, and some will be moved into other care. My diagnosis is schizophrenia, I was first diagnosed at 19. It was all strange to me; I knew of schizophrenia, I just didn’t believe I had it. I wasn’t like the other I insisted. My friends were all terrified for me, and they too didn’t know what was happening. A lot of them now have left my life, mainly because they did not understand what I was going through. I wouldn’t talk, I’d just sit there. Staring at nothing, all

Borderline and Me

Borderline and Me

I'm here to talk about the big M . The one thing that everyone has in common yet divides us - Mental health!  Along my journey of life, I’ve experienced lots of traumas and a lot of pain at the hands of other people who had similar tendencies to what I have nowadays.  Being defensive over little things and getting angry when it feels as if someone is trying to be above you. My condition is called Borderline Personality Disorder also known as EUPD  Emotionally unstable personality disorder  Whichever one you prefer both are still very painful to handle. My illness takes many forms. Neglecting positive friendships, because do I really deserve them?  Manipulating people into staying in my life even if they do not plan on leaving because they were  going to leave anyway right?  Getting paranoid about everybody I see now this one is the hardest. Dealing with EUPD is a daily struggle alongside the struggles of our times nowadays I am very shocked I am still around to be writing this.
