  1. you aren't supposed to stare at it directly. just put it somewhere near you when you can see the light. when its dark outside...try to get a cheap or used one on amazon or even ebay...it might help
  2. i find it worse either way...no one gets it.
  3. Would you ever consider it for anxiety or depression or ccd?
  4. it worked for 2 months, apparently it is used for depression, anxiety, and ocd although im not sure if it's fda approved yet/ i forget...but i tried a few years ago and it worked great until it stopped
  5. hi i have sad. i use a light therapy lamp i bought off amazon, it was like $60 bucks ... they have various ...and i look at it for 15 minutes a day when it starts getting dark to get me through the sadness in the winter/fall... just make sure its like 10,000 Lux thats what the doctors recommend..
  6. I love how easy it is for my therapist and doctor to say "just hang in there. i know it's tough, " like do they have any idea what we go through?
  7. that is exactly what I told my doctor in our recent session. after so many decades of dealing with all this i think i've reached my limit. i mean i have literally no hope left for nothing..what do i have to look forward to? nothing.
  8. that's exactly how i feel ! when i was younger, i was more hopeful that things would change, that i would be able to get over this illness, or at least live with it and survive...i thought there was more good in the world, but it was all a lie...the older i get the more i see how fake the world is and how people only care for themselves.
  9. Would you consider having it done?? Bilateral cingulotomy is a type of brain surgery considered a last resort for people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It is also used to treat major depression and occasionally chronic pain for persons who haven't found relief from any other form of therapy. Bilateral cingulotomy is a type of brain surgery considered a last resort for people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It is also used to treat major depression and occasionally chronic pain for persons who haven't found relief from any other form of therapy. This surgery targets two parts of the brain: The cingulate gyrus, which helps regulate emotions and pain The frontal lobes, whose functions include reasoning, impulse control, and judgment Surgical procedures in psychiatry are controversial, and most doctors will not perform a bilateral cingulotomy unless all other avenues of treatment have been exhausted. Many neurosurgeons, in fact, will require consent from both the patient and a close family member before proceeding with the operation. Bilateral cingulotomy was first proposed as an alternative to the lobotomy in 1947 by American physiologist John Farquhar Fulton.
  10. that's what kind of happened to me. i had OCD since the beginning (but it was mild) recently however in the last couple of months it has gotten so much worse, but my physical health also got worse, so i dont know if there is any relation to that. i hate it too, i dont know how much i can take, because nothing i ever took helped me. no medications help..
  11. thank you , and i enjoy being on here with you guys, because you get me more than the doctors ever will, but i dont know if i can do this forever.
  12. what's the point of even going on anymore?
  13. I'm crying because I have nothing left to hold on to anymore...this illness has stolen it all from me.....i have no reasons to keep going on ...or fighting...my ocd has gotten worse and im just miserable..and want to be gone
