OCD and Eating Habits
« on: November 26, 2013, 09:49:24 PM »
I have OCD and it presents itself with me having strange eating habits as outlined here: I can only eat 2 meals a day (lunch and dinner) and I can't eat anything classed as confectionary of crisps or desserty in any way, I can only eat cheese and mayonnaise and other dairy other than milk every second day and I can only eat museli two days in a row. I can also only drink 2 pints of water after each meal and no other liquid. I usually only have these as one course as well. I think that if I break these 'rules' then I would hurt or kill someone and it's really scary even to write.

I am trying therapy but I am finding it hard to break these habits and have had them since April. Does anyone have any tips or ways to get over this? I am really trying to break this but it's really hard.

Thank you :)

Can relate to odd eating habits but not to how they relate to hurting anyone else. See no connection. Can you?

Therapy might help you to understand and overcome the hurtful thoughts towards others. Those have to be dealt with. I'd worry less about the eating habits. I've just accepted that most everything has to turn into soup. Also eat only 2 meals and water is very good for you. Don't care about desserts (besides dark chocolate) or crisps you mention. Your diet may just be as good or better than what others decide.
