(Not sure where this thread belongs) I really don't care about getting better anymore. - July 27th 2012, 09:54 PM

Hey everyone.
So, I have OCD and was previously in therapy for it. We stopped because I still couldn't talk in therapy. And, although she (my therapist) doesn't know this, I lied a lot. So basically I don't have another appointment 'till August, and if before then I don't think I'll be able to talk I should cancel it, and I guess we'll go from there.
But to be completely honest, I honestly couldn't ever care about getting better anymore. I'm not depressed (the meds fixed that). My main problem was basically something with kids freaked me out, and the thing is, no one's telling me I'd HAVE to take care of a kid, and I don't want kids anyway- not because of my OCD but because I know I wouldn't enjoy it. And I know that no matter how many therapists I have I'll never be able to talk, ever. So I just feel like....What's the point? There isn't a part of me that wants to get better. I just don't care. I don't care if I'm "missing out" by not being able to hold or hug my baby cousin or play with her. I don't care at all. I just don't want to talk. And I don't want to take the steps to overcome my anxiety. I don't care at all what I'm "missing out" on.
I'm not really sure what the purpose of this thread was, cuz I'm not really sure what I'm asking for. Just....if you have any advice about this, please leave a reply if you can.
Thanks everyone.

Couple things that may or may not be of assistance for you, first of all I'd kick the meds as soon as possible and replace them with frequent exercise, it doesn't sound like they're doing you any good whatsoever. Also essentially I have the same issues you're experiencing. It never occurred to me that I had OCD until the sides of my fingers looked like they've gone through a few runs in the shredder, along with other minute yet very inconvenient quirks like extreme anxiety in the most mundane of situations. Eventually I just began to realize that pretty much every person in the world is fucked up in some manner, it's something you accept and work on living with. You made the first step to your recovery by posting here, build onto that and return whenever you're feeling down. Everyone wants you to get better, whether it's an anonymous individual like myself or your own family. Everything else will improve as you progress

I think my meds are working okay. I've improved greatly since before I started taking them. I'm just not 100% there yet, and I just don't have the desire to go the extra mile to get there.

Soon enough you'll come across someone that rekindles your desires, whether to improve or otherwise. I wish you the best of luck in your journey
