I have been struggling with mental compulsive disorder for a while now, and it can be really difficult to manage. I am constantly dealing with intrusive thoughts that plague my mind and affect how I interact with the world around me.
At times it can be quite overwhelming, causing my days to feel like drowning in an emotional whirlpool. I’ve experienced irrational fears that rule my thoughts, paralyzing me and making it hard to function normally. My compulsions make it hard to resist urges that often have no rational purpose.
Learning how to cope with these issues has been an ongoing battle for me, but I’m slowly learning strategies on how to manage them better. Talking out of my issues is helpful; being able to express what’s going on in my head without judgment helps give me perspective and acceptance. Boundary setting helps too; creating rules around certain behavior can help minimize the negative impact of obsessive thoughts or behaviors.
It is possible to get through each day while coexisting with mental health struggles, as long as you create the right environment for yourself. Reaching out for support, even in small ways, can be incredibly powerful in building a strong foundation for living life even when dealing with such a condition.
