OCD and posting

Posted by Dinah on January 21, 2006, at 23:14:29

I wasn't quite sure whether this was a Psychology topic or a Social one.

I *hate* how I post when my OCD is acting up.

I post something then I think of all the ways I might have mis-stated or messed up. I agonize about every single post, write and rewrite and end up not submitting, and then stay up nights worrying about it. And end up trying to undo what I've said so often that I get embarassed.

I know I'm being ridiculous. And I know the preferred treatment is exposure and response prevention. Not allowing myself to take something back. But the anxiety level gets too high.

Or I decide I'm not going to post at all until I feel better.

I'm just irritating the heck out of myself, and want to apologize to everyone else I might be irritating.

Any suggestions? To post and repost and regret? To not post at all?
