Does your mind play tricks on you ?
« on: July 08, 2014, 03:21:57 PM »
Hi , trying to find out more information on what might be causing my anxiety . OCD as we know is a routine of constantly checking things to various degrees . Obviously there are many strains of it . Is it possible that when you check sometime multiple times your mind just doesn't register that it is fine and you then obsess to a point where you try to examine every aspect of it . You only seem to come to the conclusion that it can't be right , safe etc no matter how many times you look at the situation . Is this a common aspect of anxiety / OCD ??

In general, its probably best to assume with anxiety that you can't trust your immediate senses. If you could reasonably determine whats going on, you wouldn't be having the anxiety. Its best to assume that all sensations are a product of the anxiety.
