    Re: CBT update

    You have the free will and choice to continue to receive and view posts on social media you want to see or not see. Mental illness or not, it really is that simple. At this point, my Facebook feed is my family, music, guitars and cats. The rest gets blocked or snoozed so there you go! The beauty of social media and Google is you have the choice to use it or not.

    Re: CBT update

    The only way I can see through this is to do what I feel. The anxiety does stop me doing lots like flying driving or social media but perhaps I just have to manage it and deal with what I can do? There is stuff I can do I never thought I would do so perhaps it may change in the future? Perhaps i need to accept things as they are and what I am comfortable with? I can push through it and do stuff sometimes but in other times it’s maybe best I just let the anxiety win or look at it it’s my way of coping with what I am at ease with?

    Re: CBT update

    When I was single in the past I worried I had spoke to the person before but now my brother is single this has brought the worry back and my ocd says if I add his new partner when he gets one im tainted or if I was ever single again and got someone new I would be worried id spoke to them before as on dating sites it’s easy to talk to 100’s. Sure I may never be single again but this all links in with my social media anxiety. On a positive I did manage to add someone new from work today without worrying

    I am terrible for worrying about hypothetical situations

    I can't understand the point you are trying to make at all, so not sure how people can answer it

    I don't understand either, the point you are making/asking about Phil. Can I make a suggestion that might help ? If you use some punctuation, maybe the meaning will be clearer. I don't say this to come across as the grammar police, but just that if everything is written like a chain of thoughts, with no division to help the reader, its a bit tricky to understand.

    Re: CBT update

    My false thoughts have returned tonight I cleaned my toilet and I washed my hands with some soap the toilet had some dirty toilet marks and my ocd says I used my hand soap which I put up on the counter even when I never. Usually I would just replace the hand soap but it’s in short supply so I’ve had to use it so I worry poop germs are on my mobile phone and anything I touch. I’ve had similar issues with the garden I won’t do the weeds due to worrying about the wheelie bin ending up in my front garden.

    My ocd has not been made worse by Corona I don’t sanitizers my hands or wash them anymore but I do have these typical worries which come up on a regular basis.

    My other worry is about people being tainted. I worry I have spoke to them before so they are tainted. So if my brother gets a new partner or do in future I worry I have spoke to them before and it’s tainted but I couldn’t stay single nor can my brother

    Re: CBT update

    How does your mental illness affect you in real life with these types of irrational thoughts that appear to be constantly bombarding you? I know you're in a relationship, own a home, work etc. but how do these thoughts, other than the monetary impact, affect your day to day life?
