    Ugh has anybody had this problem? I find myself getting my feelings hurt by like everything my boyfriend says. He never purposely hurts my feelings but he does like to joke around a lot and before all this mess happened I was able to take a joke. But now here recently I get my feelings hurt by everything he says and its getting progressively worse. First it would only be a few seconds that my feelings would be hurting and I'd just get over it and realize its a joke, then it got worse I'd overthink what he said and my feelings would be hurting for like an hour and I couldn't seem to brush off the sadness I was feeling. Now its something that lasts all day and its like a horrible depression that makes you want to cry. Everything hurts so bad. :( He understands that I'm overly sensitive now and is always trying to make me feel better. Which is really sweet. I just hate being so depressed and making him deal with me..

    ROCD ladies - My current situation is that, I'm not experiencing any intrusive thoughts etc, I'm just feeling nothing, not attracted to my boyfriend, sexually or in any other way. I love him with all my heart, that I'm sure of, and I want to be with him...any of you girls like this?

    I feel this at the moment. I haven't so much got the intrusive thoughts, as i just feel a little cut off from things, especially towards my relationship - making me feel slightly off. But all in all, its a lot bearable that say a month and half ago.

    So i would say ebbs and flows :) We're just going through a bout of disconnection or something. Not too worry :) x

    I'm really scared. I feel so disconnected from reality. I have a hard time concentrating and remembering people's faces and while I was having a a panic attack yesterday my mind decided to play tricks on me and say "what If you're losing your mind and you're getting amnesia and you REALLY don't know who these people are?" Like wtf that doesn't make any sense. I'm so scared. Depersonalizations sucks so much. Nothing feels real..

    Yeah I'd say this is bareable, I just feel off in general which I'm just wanting that to lift if that makes sense ? I generally just feel "off" most days!

    Thanks Emmyloo xx

    Don't know what to do anymore. I've felt numb for so long.. I'm starting to believe Im just completely numb towards my BF and don't love him anymore. I don't know what to do. I can't deal with this anymore. I feel so detached emotionally from everything.

    Does anybody's anxiety/ROCD make them think they fancy someone else besides their boyfriend when they actually don't? Like random people on the street, ex boyfriends, people on Facebook. My best friend dates my old ex boyfriends brother and for some reason the thought of my ex just randomly popped up when she was talking about her boyfriend just because she dates his brother. I barely even liked this guy and it was so long long ago almost a year ago actually. I didn't even date for him a month and he was too young and imature for me anyways. So why is my mind obsessing about the fact he randomly popped into my mind and making me think "oh you must still like him and care about him!" And it keeps popping up in my mind. Ugh!! :( plus I'm feeling so detached still so it's like I'm stuck in my thoughts and can't come back to reality.

    Realizing now that the reason I was so out of it earlier was because I took a benzo. No more medicine for me.. It makes me too loopy.

    Is it wrong to have a "fake it till you make it" type of attitude about my relationship? I feel like while I'm still numb from anxiety towards my boyfriend that its not necessarily a bad thing to be acting like I normally would towards him - all lovey dovey - even though I don't' necessarily feel that way because I'm numb to my emotions. Is this wrong to be doing?

    Does anyone know how to get rid of deperosonalization? I hate feeling so detached from everything and having obsessive thoughts I can't control. I'm desperate to get rid of this. Do SSRIs help? Anything :(

    There is nothing you can do, the only way you can get rid of it is to ignore it, DP is a defence mechanism created by your brain to protect you from the anxiety. The only proven way to get rid of DP is to not fear it, you just have to live with it and distract! I dealt with this and it was EXTREMELY bad to begin with, as soon as I started to distract and not fear it, it got better...100 times better, it's barely there, all that's left is ROCD which is getting better. You have to NOT fear it..it's the worst thing you can do x

    Anybody just feel absolutely horrible during ovulation? I've read somewhere that if you have a hormonal imbalance than any symptoms you normally have are amplified during ovulation and that if your hormones are normal, then ovulation is when you feel your best. That sure does explain a lot. Who else feels horrible around the time/during ovulation? And even if you aren't ovulating your hormones are still up and down like they would be throughout the month and some of you have to notice a significant increase of symptoms around the time ovulation would be.
