Momdar or OCD?

Posted by Dinah on January 10, 2008, at 12:23:47

I'm feeling really uneasy about my neurologically impaired dog. I'm not sure it's anything I can put my finger on, but I'm getting this strong urge to bring her in to the vets. I used to rely heavily on this sense - and it was reasonably accurate but not without false positives, but vet bills have gotten sooo high, and her treatment costs sooo much already that I'm reluctant to bring her in on so little evidence.

And I'm not sure how much of it is tied to my stress around my family. My father left me in a difficult position, and while I try not to think about it, everyone in my family really needs more from me that I can give. Or at least it seems that way. And my therapist considers the situation hopeless. Or at least he says he feels hopeless and doesn't see that there's any workable solutions. And while nothing new is coming up, that I know about, I am in more contact with them today than usual.

My OCD tends to divert me away from real concerns to more fantastical scenarios. So I'm not sure if this is OCD.

I started out today feeling sort of tearful about nothing in particular, but now I'm getting increasingly anxious about the dog. And there's no real need for urgent anxiousness I think. Even if she is doing worse, it's not an emergency sort of situation. So it makes no sense.

Is that a tipoff that it's OCD?

I see my therapist tomorrow, but he's more likely to turn the question back on me. Sigh.
