When I focus on my OCD and BDD and give it power all I do is cry and feel miserable because I’ve convinced myself I have it and then feel worse because all of this was so self inflicted by me? I don’t know if this is because I actually have OCD and don’t want to or if it is just the OCD or BDD convincing me and making me miserable?
I know people struggle so that’s a huge worry that this is just the same and I’m struggling with it all. But i don’t think it’s OCD or BDD which makes me fall down a rabbit hole. But then the fact that this isn’t stopping and I always come back to OCD makes me think I’m upset because I have it?
