Feeding OCD

Thursday, November 14, 2013

I have been working hard to get rid of the symptoms associated with OCD. This new tracker that we have has brought the OCD issues back in a big way. I am running to the computer after every workout big or small to see the difference. I also check it when I have done absolutely nothing.

The way I deal with it is to admit I have lost control to OCD. I will have to retrain my brain to control how many times I check the computer. It is really not so bad just annoying. I am definitely not getting rid of the tracker. So it's tracker or OCD. Tracker knocked OCD out.

    Good attitude. I check my trackers and teams often now because I am bored with not being able to get out.

    Bettie--don't feel alone .............. I have those OCD 'tendencies' shall we say also ............ emoticon I read a blog by sparks a few months ago and they talked about 'time wasters' ................. checking emails, and computer stuff often or really frequently .................. I got to thinking and tell myself: Ok--THIS IS THE TIME YOU GET period ..................... and then only allow myself a reasonable time for those things that would pull me back into the OCD realm ..................Oops!!! My time is up for now so I have to take my own medicine and GET OFF ............. emoticon
