Benny was a good boy at Starbucks, so he got a puppuccino to eat in the car. I never let Benny eat human food in restaurants, grocery stores, or places that sell any sort of food. Or really, anywhere public at all. I always wait until we get to the car for him to have a treat (the exception is that dog treats are okay for training purposes, but that’s a totally different thing). If he’s in his vest, he doesn’t eat human food. Period. I do this out of respect for the businesses, the people around me, and also because it’s not appropriate to have a service dog consuming food meant for humans in public. . 🐶 Follow our pawtners 🐶 @servicedoggo_leia @trazadoned @sawyer_the_barkista @tabouli_the_tourettes_dog @workingk9macie @supersebastian_sd @super_helpful_spacedog @percy.pupp.sdit . . . #servicedogintraining #smallservicedog #medicalertdog #psychiatricservicedog #autismservicedog #dysautonomia #chronicillness #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #menieresdisease #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #mooddisorder #autism #actuallyautistic #medicalmess #butyoudontlooksick #jackrussellmix #starbucks #puppuccino

A few people requested this after my OCD post yesterday. Made this to raise awareness for those who contacted me, this is based on their experiences not mine. Also I am aware I haven’t covered everyone’s experiences here. That’s not possible. Some have some of these things mentioned others have all. Some fluctuate and others have it lifelong. [image description: a digital hand drawn illustration of a black cat with orange eyes from the side about to pounce. There are some speech bubbles which say “I have dermotillomania and trichotillomania. Dermotillomania means I pick my skin, spots, moles, freckles, scars or ‘imperfections’. Trichotillomania means I pull my hair out. Not just head hair but any hair. Sometimes I do it on purpose. Other times I don’t know I’m doing it. I feel very ashamed. It’s an ‘impulse control ‘ disorder and linked to OCD. I can’t ‘just stop’. “ ] #trich #trichotillomania #dermatillomania #ocd #obsessivecompulsivedisorder

It's #worldautismawarenessday .Here are some reasons why you should NOT #lightitupblue ! Autism Speaks is actually a very harmful organization for people with Autism, like me. Its aim is to "cure" Autism and it presents Autism as a burden and as something that is undesirable. While Autism does come with its challenges, it makes me who I am, and I am NOT a burden, nor is anyone else with Autism. The whole Light It Up Blue campaign reminds me of a time when a guest speaker said to my class, "No parent would want their child to have Autism, understandably." Understandably? Really? Autism is not some sort of monster like Autism Speaks makes it out to be. Autism Speaks literally has a commercial that says, "I am Autism. I have no interest in right or wrong. I derive great pleasure out of your loneliness. I will fight to take away your hope. I will plot to rob you of your children and your dreams. I will make sure that every day you wake up you will cry, wondering who will take care of my child after I die?" Does this sound like an organization that wants Autism acceptance? No, it doesn't. They want to get rid of Autism instead of spread awareness about the wonderful accomplishments that those with Autism have achieved. If you want to learn more about the "work" that Autism Speaks does, leave me a comment down below. #lightitupred

this is really meaningful edit to me and i hope y’all understand the message behind it. • you can watch the full video in the link in my bio. • basically this is an au of denis with obsessive compulsive disorder, aka ocd. a short run down of ocd is when someone gets obsessed with things, and they do certain things to feed these obsessions. in this, denis is obsessed with this girl, and when she leaves him, he’s heartbroken. this is not true in any way, shape, or form. • i hope y’all get the message behind this; it means a lot to me. click the link in my bio to watch the rest. i’ll be posting the other two parts tomorrow. #denisdaily #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #dailygrp #aestheticgrp

For those living with obsessive compulsive disorder, it's not always about the destination, but the journey, that brings the anxiety down. Personally, a clean house brings me calmness - but I need to be the one who cleans it. An organised life brings me peace - but I need to be the one to write the list. Only once the obsession is silenced by the compulsions, do we stop. So why can't we stop in every day life, when the anxiety is actually controlled? Why must we always look to the destination and rush through the journey? I thought about all of this as this handsome little man didn't feel like rushing to the car after an hour of shopping. He wanted to stop. He made me stop. And so we both looked around us and enjoyed the journey. It felt good. We were happy. Thank you my sweet boy. For showing me what living in the moment feels like. And for making me understand that by living with anxiety, as exhausting as it is, I'm learning how to live without it.

📷: @barfotagraf (The good photos only though... 😅) #MHAW As I mentioned yesterday I missed the last two days of mental health awareness week 2018, and am doing them now. • The reason I “missed” the last two days was that I was very busy. Those of you who follow me know that my sister defended her PhD thesis last month, and this weekend was the spring celebration of the university where all new PhDs get recognised for their work with an official ceremony and a banquette. It was exciting stuff! What made everything even better was that my uncle came all the way from America to attend. We haven’t been able to see each other for the past 10 years, so it was very special. • One thing that is very evident after such a busy weekend is how much mental illness affects my life. When there are lots of things that needs to be done and you have a packed schedule there is no time for being mentally ill. One of the aspects we always underestimate about mental illness is the tiredness that comes with it. The thing is, being mentally ill means every single thing you do is harder than it is for the “average” person. There is constantly a “mean” voice in your head, a bully if you will, that criticises you and puts you down. Every breathe of every day is harder to take and requires more energy from you. Obviously that leads to an extreme exhaustion. And when there is loads to do, there is no time to rest. A night’s sleep doesn’t do much to help, you go to bed exhausted and you wake up just as exhausted (if not more so). • Several days have passed and I am still trying to recover from this weekend. I want to clarify though, that it was something I wanted to do myself. I wouldn’t miss it for the world, and I’m happy I did it. The only problem is that in our society there is no room for a weeklong recuperation. And as sufferers of mental illness we tend to blame ourselves for not being “good enough” when we can’t live according to the standard. So, message of today: Be patient with yourself and give yourself time, even when society tells you otherwise. Show kindness to people around you that may suffer from mental illnesses and show kindness to yourself. All the love ❤️

Today, take inventory with yourself. Are you hungry? Tired? Tense? When you plan your day, try to integrate and prioritize self-care. We live in a culture that glorifies workaholics, when that idea is really not realistic for who we are as beings. We need rest, we need time to heal and process our lives. You cannot be go go go all the time, especially in the thick of OCD. I know this is easier said than done, especially if your OCD is keeping you from truly relaxing. But remember, you are a person who deserves peace & happiness just as much as anyone else. It’s so important to practice being gentle with ourselves, because OCD can really beat us up. I have a blog post coming up full of tips that have really helped me through that in my journey. Comment below how you practice prioritizing self-care! I would love to share your input in the blog post 🌻

today has been a day of reflection✨ . so much that I cried on my way to work because I have come so far and I have such an overwhelming passion to support mental illness (thank God for sunglasses 😎). . today I had the opportunity to share my story for #31daysofrecovery for #mentalhealthmonth with NAMI. Something I didn’t think I would ever do was share my story with more people than my parents and therapist. But here I am with dreams so big I just wanna change the world.😅 . a few years ago I could barely function. Fast forward to now and do I still struggle? Yeah for sure. But I am a different human that’s for sure. . recovery to me has meant learning that mental recovery takes more than physical change. It means that I get to pursue what I love to do and live a life that’s full of laughs. It means revealing how silly I am to strangers, my family, or even my therapist. It means going out with my boyfriend or going on vacay with my fam. It means going to a four year college and being a student athlete. It means choosing recovery everyday even if I am depressed, anxious, or have a lot of eating disorder thoughts. . recovery doesn’t mean I go back to who I used to be. Instead it means I am finding who I am meant to be.💚 . . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthmonth #mentalhealthawareness #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorderawareness #anorexia #anorexiarecovery #anxiety #anxietydisorder #ocd #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #mentalhealthmatters #nami #namisacramento #namicalifornia

We live in a world that demands certainty. If we don’t have quick answers, we panic. This mindset to solve and find answers to all of our “what if’s” is not doing us any good. It’s especially hard when you have OCD. Your worst fears are playing in your mind. “What if I’m not with the right person?” “What if I don’t love my partner enough?” “What if I contract a deadly disease from that doorknob?” “What if I’m a monster for thinking these things?” Although these thoughts are terrifying for someone with OCD, the BEST thing you can do is not try to figure out the answer, because that is ultimately a compulsion that’s teaching your brain that your scary thoughts have value. It’s ok to not know the answer. It’s ok to not figure it out. It’s ok to throw your hands up and say, “Hey scary thought. I see you. I acknowledge your presence, but I’m not going to try to solve you”. This is hard hard, hard work. But I promise it’s work that is worth it. • • • • #ocd #pureO #pureOCD #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #OCDawareness #solveproblems #anxietyrelief #mentalillness #recovery #overthinking #stigma #breakthestigma #acceptance #anxiety #BFRB #panic #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #motivation #uncertainty #misconceptions #support #ERP #exposureresponseprevention #education #learn #worry #recovery #invisibleillness #hope

I think this is the only green shirt I own but today I’m wearing it because May is Mental Health Awareness Month. I have numerous friends and family who suffer from various disorders, chemical imbalances, etc. Many times people suffer in silence because a lot of times it makes people uncomfortable to talk about or hear about. We need to break the stigma and encourage friends and family to talk about their problems so that they know they have a support group. Even if you aren’t sure what to say, be there to listen. Do some research so you know what NOT to say. Mental health issues affect way more folks than most people probably think. It’s not fake, they aren’t whining, don’t assume they’re doing it for attention, don’t tell them to just get over it. Be supportive because it’s a hard road to travel. #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #breakthestigma #breakthesilence #bipolardisorder #socialanxietydisorder #schizophrenia #anorexianervosa #overeating #paranoia #anxiety #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #suicidalthoughts #selfharm #seasonalaffectivedisorder #mania #depression #bodydysmorphia #askforhelp

Dealing with #ocd is one of the hardest things i have to do. along with my anxiety it is a constant battle to just stay calm. the worst part is nobody seems to understand what i go through. just one of those invisible illness type of things and it sucks but we keep moving. i love everyone who is still supporting me and if you also have anxieties or ocd i hope you know you can STILL do whatever you want in life.💯 #cannabissaveslives #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #invisibleillness #mentalhealthawareness #bekind

Missing my boat day out with my sister 🚣‍♀️ 🍽👯‍♀️ Keeping up with this mood diary I’ve started, (saying I started, it’s in my head) I actually need to write it down. Been having many office days and still got a lot of work to do, which I feel no way about. I think i’ve reached the point of apathy🤷🏽‍♀️. - At the very least i’m good with myself for putting away a washed load of clothes and putting the next load in to wash. Basic and boring at it might seem, that’s been a lot for me to do. Now I just need to get to that point where my room is fully tidy. - I agreed on some exposures to work on for the next 2 weeks: • Leaving the house at least twice a week, I know not really ambitious but at least it’s realistic for me. • Reduce some checking compulsions of checking the house. - I’ve got the last part of my cardiology tests next week, It’s almost taken a year just for 2 appointments and then the outpatient appointment for results is in August?! I’m really not looking forward if, these examinations make so me anxious. . . . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #panicattack #cptsd #journal #lbloggersuk #depression #chronicillness #anxietyrecovery #thegirlgang #bpd #gad #lbloggersuk #anxietyhelp #selfcare #mentalhealthsupport #selfhelp #mentalhealthblogger #browngirlbloggers #chronicallyill #britishasian #invisibleillness #chronicfatigue #butyoudontlooksick #matchalatte #mooddisorder #exposuretherapy #imonaboat

Selfie. A little about me: I’m quite new to making art and have never taken an art class, so this whole thing has been a learning process and quite therapeutic. It is my goal to post on themes that I struggle with regarding mental illness each day, so you may see some recurring themes. Thanks to everyone who has left kind feedback and for following, it really does inspire me to keep going and to relate to others who battle some of the same issues. ❤️

You didn't think I was done posting about #MentalHealthMonth ...did you? Here’s another #mentalhealth inspired photo. This time I was inspired by #Dermatillomania (or #ExcoriationDisorder). This mental disorder is characterized by repetitive and compulsive picking of skin. It is often confused with #selfharm but is actually more closely related to #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder. #ocd #mhm18 #mham18 #breakthestigma #curestigma #stigmafree #noshame #realconvo #bethedifference #mentalhealthphotography #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #4mind4body #photoshop #imagesbyimogen #imogenimagining (Note: These photos are just my personal visual interpretations of mental illness. I am not a mental health expert and mean no offense to anyone who has experiences different than shown here.

I’m so selfish. 😖 I feel like whenever I’m with anyone, whether it be friends or people I’ve just met, I talk way too much about myself, and don’t give them much of an opportunity to talk. 😡 Especially today, I was having lunch with my friend, and she finished much before me, as all she had to do was listen while she ate, and I couldn’t talk and eat at the same time. 🗣🌯 Maybe I’m a slightly slower eater too, but still. 😔 (I am also a little angry with myself that I had lunch, but I know that I need to eat). 😑 I hate how I do this. 😓 I’ve always been one to love talking and be slightly hyper, so I think that I now over compensate so that no one thinks there’s anything wrong. 🤫 I use talking as a mask, so that I can deceive people while slowly dying inside. 😩 I guess it’s also good for when I have self harmed. 🙁 Since I always portray this ‘happy, talkative girl’, no one would think that the scratches on my arm are self harm. 😶 They wouldn’t really have a reason to think that way and would probably assume it was my cat (which occasionally it actually is). 🐱 This could all be a bad idea too, because if everyone thinks I’m fine, how are they going to know that I’m not if I don’t let anyone in. 😭 I am conflicted. 🤔

This week mentally I have to admit has been really bad, like one of the most difficult weeks I've ever had. And I don't mean about weight loss stuff or anything like that because that's been really great but I've been struggling greatly with my ocd. It's not something I ever really mention and I don't know why this week in particular has been especially bad but it's why I have been so quiet lately. Yesterday it all seemed to come to a head and I burst into tears and ended up just going to bed way early. I'm just so behind on everything and no matter how hard I try I can't catch up and I can't get thing neat in my head and I'm just so overwhelmed by thoughts that I can't shut off. I don't want to feel like yesterday ever again, so this morning after a good night sleep I've decided to not let the bad thoughts dictate how I feel. I woke up early, had my breakfast, done my workout and I'm really to tackle these jobs. I'm choosing to be happy today and so should you. ____________________________________________ ____________________________________________ ____________________________________________ #quotes #fitnessquotes #insperationalquotes #sayings #lifequotes #motto #quoteporn #wordporn #quoteoftheday #instaquote #lifelessons #moodquotes #workoutmotivation #healthandfitness #bodypositivity #weightlossjourney #determination #fbfamily #ocd #ocdproblems #ocdawareness #ocdhelp #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #ocdstruggles #choosehappy #choosehappyness #choosetobehappy #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthstruggles

Dette er et hudløst og bundærligt opslag #udenfilter . Jeg blev som 15 - 16 årig diagnosticeret med OCD (Jeg er 30 år nu) da min (nu afdøde) far var indlagt på hospitalet i 3 mdr. med dobbeltsidet lungebetændelse og blev genoplivet et par gange.. Kan tydeligt huske da jeg begyndte at vaske hænder derude og blive virkelig bange for bakterier.. . Siden dengang har jeg udviklet sygdomsangst, depression, personlighedsforstyrrelse (borderline) og svær seperationsangst (overfor min kæreste igennem 12 år) . I 2016 blev min OCD også slem da vi kom hjem fra en familierejse hvor vi havde været på Gran Canaria. Jeg var sikker på at jeg havde taget en masse luftbårne bakterier og sygdomme med hjem, så jeg kunne praktisk talt ikke røre ved nogle af mine ting og jeg skulle hele tiden spørge folk om der kunne ske noget ved at have været på Gran Canaria.. Alt blev desinficeret, vasket osv. . Min OCD har ærlig talt overtaget min hverdag. Jeg vasker hænder hele tiden. Jeg kan ikke røre ved ting i mit hjem eller ved min egen kæreste og hund uden at føle mig fyldt med bakterier.. Når jeg kommer hjem udefra så desinficerer jeg min telefon.. . Jeg begyndte også at skulle rette på ting i supermarkedet, huske på stregkoder (De første 4 og sidste 4 cifre) og nummerplader (Men det gik egentlig over).. På det seneste er jeg begyndt på det med nummerpladerne og rettelsen af varer igen og det med stregkoderne er gået helt amok. Nu kan jeg ikke smide ting ud uden jeg skal have et billede eller en video af emballagen så jeg har det hele (Dato, indhold osv.) . Min sygdomsangst er også brudt voldsomt ud. Jeg bemærker hver eneste lillebitte (ubetydelige) ting ved min krop og tager til læge og øjenlæge konstant.. Når jeg har briller på og er ude, så skal de desinficeres fuldstændig når jeg kommer hjem.. Det samme med mit ansigt.. . Jeg føler at jeg er ved at blive sindssyg af alle de rutiner jeg skal gennemgå for at kunne få bare en smule ro i kroppen og hvis ikke jeg gør det så får jeg en trykkende følelse i brystkassen, ondt i maven og jeg er sikker på at der sker mig eller mine nærmeste dårlige ting - Jeg er især bange for at miste og blive forladt.. . #obsessivecompulsivedisorder

This is me at age 18, it was the end of high school and life as I knew it. I was just a girl who didn’t know she was about to have the worst year of her life. Throughout high school I already knew that I had some issues. Anxiety but I never called it that and depression but I never called it that. I just had these emotions and didn’t really know how to navigate them or understand why I was feeling like this. In high school I had a routine and was overall happy and just trying to make those high school memories like everyone else. After graduation I was lost and any happiness just slipped away, like it had never been there in the first place. I never left my home and barely left my room. I lost all my friends because of that. I just cried all the time and slept for days on end. Then sprinkles of mania popped in and made me think I was cured! I was normal! Life’s amazing! Then it hits you… back to just emptiness. Going to be real honest right now, I had 3 hefty paragraphs about the summer of 2009 and the traumatic winter that followed. I had key details of that time along with things I’ve never said out loud before. I’ve always been an open book but as I was about to type a 4th paragraph I froze realizing so many people would read this… some I know and some I don’t. I didn’t know if I could share this. I want to be that person who tells her story to get the word out, break stigma, and change minds or help someone just like me. Let them know they’re not alone. But I hit delete. I wanted to tell you the intimate details of my depression and the story of the worst year of my life. But I guess I’ll just leave you with this. To people I just look like a fun, bubbly, happy person. If I didn’t talk about my mental health I don’t think anyone would ever know. Depression sucks and it just hits you at any moment and usually with no good reason. It can waste your day away or inhabit you for months at a time with no light at the end of the tunnel. I have many happy days now, almost a decade later with lots of help from my support systems and professionals. But that sadness is always there, lingering over me. Please just keep searching for the light, it’s there. I’ve seen it.

Been having a bad day, so for tonight's post, let's talk about some positives that happened instead of the negative. 1. I saw a cat 2. Ben cuddles 3. Diesel cuddles 4. Breakfast with Erik and Lauren 5. Had a good coffee 6. Had a good nap 7. Was nice weather outside 8. Had fun organizing beads by colour at work Remember, even on the worst of days, there can be little positives, and THOSE are what matter! What was a positive of your day? #recovery #mentalhealth #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #ocd #anxiety #depression #edrecovery #positivethinking

#MHAW So, I missed the last two days of mental health awareness week 2018. Therefore I’ve decided I’m going to do them today and tomorrow, because frankly mental health awareness should not be limited to one week a year. • Today I had my last dance class of this term, and so I want to talk about the role dance has in my quest for health. There is a lot of talk about what dance does to your body. We all know that physical activity is good for the body, and dance (especially ballet) is about as tough as it gets. You get more flexible and stronger, both of which I can feel after this term. But there is so much more to it, at least for me. Dance has become the most effective therapy that I am going through. Because it is an art it brings a sense of expression to my soul. I wouldn’t call it purely “joy”, because it’s not always happy. But it makes me feel things more concretely, it’s cathartic. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, dance does something to my mind. As a sufferer of a handful of mental illnesses one of the most difficult things for me is to silence my mind, keep it quiet and still. Another big issue I have is to feel and be present. Most of the time I’m worrying about what is to come or berating myself for something that has passed. I’m never in the moment - except for when I dance. The feeling is like nothing else. Everything is peaceful in my head. There is no anxiety and no regret, I’m completely in myself and I feel almost like I disappear. I’m completely in me, and completely gone. I think maybe it’s being mindful, but I only ever experience it when dancing. • In a weird way dance satisfies my body, soul and mind’s desires. Hence it’s the most effective method of therapy, for me. So, I want to urge you to find the thing that does this for you. It doesn’t have to be ballet (or any other type of dance), but find something that gives you and all of your “parts” serenity. It’s a great addition to CBT, talk therapy and medicine. Much love.

Меня не было какое-то время, все связанно с тем, что последние пару недель у меня вновь были ухудшения.. Тревога, сильные навязчивости, сон, визуальные и голоса, но их немного. Слететь в психоз очень бы не хотелось, поэтому пошла на консультацию к врачу. Мне увеличили нл, которые принимаю, что касается феназепама, им посоветовали не пользоваться, "дело неблагодарное" лучше не надо, только в острой необходимости. С тревогой справиться помогал. На новом лечении мне стало лучше, большая часть всего, кроме постоянных проявлений меня не беспокоила. А сегодня снова была сильная тревога и ещё неприятные моменты. Не понимаю, чем это вызвано, так как я лечусь, стресса в последнее время тоже не было, за исключением историй с мч. Сейчас пытаюсь собраться с мыслями, упорядочить все как-то, не получается совсем. Навязчивостям жутко изматывают, нет возможности почти думать о чем-то другом, переодически слышу какие-то хрипы, как кашель. Хочется лежать и полностью, с головой уйти в эти мысли, прокручивать из в голове вечно. Сил мало, как на жизнь, так мира жизнь в целом. Только что в голове опять появилось яркое представление, очень резкое движение, как в сознании, внутри за глазами. Стала иногда видеть как вспышки перед глазами, с боков. Я с одной стороны стою, хоть на краю, но держусь, все не так уж и плохо, но последний день два показали, что мне ещё далеко идти от края. Боюсь, что постепенно проваливаюсь...

For every misfortune, it's always much easier to find someone or something to blame than to deal with the situation to manage it as is and/or to prevent it from reoccurring. #ClinicallyInsane hewee hewee ba mo loile o ja dithare #Anxiety heela ha tshwanetse go dira sengwe kamoso o lala a hupela, ha ba bate nna successful #FunctionalNeurologicalDisorder Ijoo ba mo jesitse nxustru #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder Ijaa o mo jesitse mo a mo thatswetsang le yone panty tota #Depression Koore ha ba bate le go tsoga a ka tsoga a tswa mo ntung #BorderlinePersonalityDisorser O possessed yoo hao mo itse #Bipolar Go nale nako e a siameng hele ele ene yo re mo itseng, mme ke nkukuagwe #schezophrenia Hee o thoka exorcism hela ya maemo a ntha, matimone a teng hase a bana #Autism Ha ba bate a kare wa bua, mme okile a bo a siame #StayWokeItsReal #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth #ImTheFaceOFMentalHealth #SoManyConditionsToLearnAbout #BeMentallyAttractive

Var bjuden på middag med mitt jobb idag. Vi åt thaimat från #pairatsthaimat. Godaste thaimaten i stan. Kändes lite konstigt att umgås med kollegorna. Känns som det var igår vi jobbade ihop men samtidigt som det var en hel evighet sedan. Sen ger det mig en hel del ångest. Bara tanken på hemtjänsten gör att jag vill tvätta händerna. Är glad att jag for dit trots att det ger mig ångest. Det är ett steg framåt i mitt tillfrisknande. ---------------------------------------- I was invited to dinner with my work. We ate thaifood from the best place in town. Fellt a bit strange to socialice with my work colleageus. It fellt like we worked toghether yesterday but åt the same town like it was an eternity ago. Beeing with my colleagues gives me a lot of anxiety. Just the thought of home care makes me want to wash my hands. I'm happy I went there despite it gave me anxiety. It is a step forward in my recovery.

💬 ● Obsesif Kompulsif Bozukluk; kişinin anksiyete yaratan düşünce, dürtü, arzu ve duygulanımlar (obsesyon) yaşantılayarak, adeta bir ritüel haline gelen tekrarlayıcı davranış ve zihinsel eylemlerde (kompulsiyon) bulunduğu ruhsal bir problemdir. Kişinin isteği ve kontrolü dışında gelişen bu yineleyici obsesyonlar, bir anksiyete kaynağı haline gelerek kişiyi kompulsiyon olarak tanımlanan belirli rutin ve ritüelleri gerçekleştirmeye zorlar. Kişinin anksiyetesi ancak bu kompulsif eylemler aracılığıyla azalır. ●Bir yerden mikrop bulaşması, toplum içinde uygunsuz bir harekette bulunma korkusu, kendine ya da bir yakınına zarar verme korkusu en yaygın obsesyonlardandır. Kompulsiyonlara ise; sıkça el yıkama, sayı sayma, defalarca kontrol etme, istifleme, bir eylemi belirli bir sayıda yapma örnek olarak gösterilebilir. 👈🏼 ●Bu obsesyon ve kompulsiyonlar kişinin hayatında çok yer kaplayabilir ve işlevselliğini oldukça düşürebilir. Hatta kişiye zarar verecek duruma gelebilir. Örneğin elleri çok sık yıkama sonucu oluşan lezyonlar gibi. 🤷🏻‍♀️ ●Ne var ki; gelişen bu obsesyonlar, temelini ruhsallığın derinliklerinden alan simgesel anksiyete kaynaklarıdır. Tıpkı kompülsiyonların simgesel bir döngü olması gibi. 🔃 ●Obsesif Kompulsif bozukluğun temellerine bakıldığında; özellikle erken çocukluk döneminde yaşantılanan ve süregelen çatışmaların, dürtü-süperego savaşlarının ve ikircikli duyguların yerinin oldukça büyük olduğu görülmektedir. Bu nedenle belirtiler, sebepler ve çözümler birkaç kriter ile özetlenemeyecek kadar özneldir. Yüzeydeki obsesyonları ve kompulsiyonları anlamlandırmak, kişinin derinindeki öznel işleyişini anlamlandırmaktan geçer. Dediğim gibi; obsesyonlar ve kompulsiyonlar birer simgedir. "Asıl anlatılmak istenen ne, bu durum neyi ifade etmeye çalışıyor?" sorusu üzerinde çalışmak gerekir. 🙏🏼🌱 . . . #photooftheday #psychology #psychotherapy #counseling #mentalhealth #ocd #obsession #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #inspiration #psikoloji #psikolog #psikoterapi #okb #obsesifkompulsifbozukluk #ruhsalligayolculuk

It might be helpful to ask yourself why you struggle with the idea that NO IS a full sentence. Is it because you are afraid people will judge you if you just say, “no!” Or, did you get taught at a early age that saying no is selfish? Or rude? Are you afraid people won’t like you if you don’t do what they ask of you? Well, let me ask you this? Why don’t we feel compelled to explain all the reasons WHY we say “yes!” to things we are asked to do? If yes is a full sentence, so is no. Give yourself the gift of saying no. #noisafullsentence #selfcompassion #selflove #mentalhealth #mentalwellness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #psychology #therapy #therapist #cbtschool #anxietyrelief #anxietyrecovery #anxiety #ocdrelief #ocdrecovery #ocdawareness #depression #depressionsucks #obsessivecompulsivedisorder

It was my birthday over the weekend. 🎉 As mentioned in another post, I was having a party / afternoon tea with my friends and family. 👭👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Leading up to the party I was really hesitant of having one and kept on saying that I wanted to cancel it, however, I knew I couldn’t. 😩 We had so much food at the party, like cookies🍪, cake🍰, Icecream🍦, rice paper rolls, bread🍞 with Philadelphia and salmon, fruit🍇🍓, veges🥒🥕, dips, chips🍿, and even more🥂🍾. There were probably about 50 people there (not everyone showed up - even some that are supposedly my closeish friends 😔), and there is still quite a lot of food left over. 😑 I actually had a nice time, but I still hate my birthday. 🤔 I asked people not to bring me gifts 🎁 (since I never feel like I deserve anything, but also, I never need anything). 😕 My family and a few other people still got me presents though. 😖 I feel so bad because some people in my family spent so much money on me, and I am just not worthy of such nice and expensive gifts. 😓 For most years on my birthday, I have a breakdown where I cry so hard it hurts. 😰 Since being unable to cry on my antidepressants, I forced myself to watch some really sad videos. ☹️ I did end up crying, but not as much as I needed. 😬 I had to be silent as everyone was asleep at home. 😴 All the horrible feelings associated with my birthday needed to be let out. 😩 I hate that I’m older. 😱 I never thought I’d make it this far... 😳

“Choose a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life” Whats not to love looking after cuties like this everyday! Stepping away from what I thought I ‘should’ be doing career wise and where i ‘should’ be heading and not giving a shit what other people thought about it has been a huge breakthrough for me in my recovery. I love what I do and I don’t care if people think I have wasted my potential or my education or that I could be doing more. I am happy and I haven’t missed a day of work due to mental illness since I began this job 4 months ago. That tells me all I need to know #wellnesswednesday #wellness #loveyourjob #dogs #doggiedaycare #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalwellness #stigmafighter #mentalhealth #today #life #anxiety #bipolar #depression #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #work #hope #time #recovery #mentalhealthmatters #pomeranian

2 new tricks! I’m so excited! “Sit Pretty” was something I tried to work on when he was younger, but at that point he was too nervous to even try to begin to sit like that - so I took a break from that particular trick all together. He has gained so much confidence in himself and trust in me that newer skills come easier. After learning various tricks over the past year, it now only takes a few minutes to teach him something new because of his grown confidence! My dad taught him “Crawl” when I wasn’t around and I was excited to see my dad working with him ☺️ warmed my heart! The video is of me trying it out for the first couple times. .
