OCD, depression and anxiety

Default profile image
Afternoon. Does anybody else here have OCD,depression and anxiety? I have a lot of negative thoughts and can't seem to switch them off. I.e,If someone has a go at me,the fact I was bullied at school,the fact that I am thick,the fact that I lost a friend because I had a go at them for putting on me,that I find it hard to say no. All these things,the thoughts I have,I get anxious and stressed by it. My relationship with food is weird,coping to a certain extent and then I get anxious over it when something happens or I get an ailment. I have to eat though.I don't want to be teased for being skinny again. Eating properly is a must for me,even when I have phases of no appetite. I can't go on holiday or out for the day because I can't eat around a lot of people in close proximity. I think people are staring. I get worried that the car will breakdown and I'll miss my food. I like to be near home,that way I am in control. I have to have a cooked meal during the day to help ease my anxiety and that way I know I have cooked food inside me. I shop via my phone. Going to the supermarket causes my anxiety to go sky high and I get irritable. I left work due to the OCD,Depression and anxiety,was comparing myself to a woman that started nearly 7 years after me,3 months later i had a really bad depressive bout and couldn't go into work. 5 months later i left for good. I clean the house for my mum and dad,have mates and hobbies,but I feel I am a disappointment to them. The mates I have now don't use me. I've been on an assertive course and have said no to a few things,felt weird. I get scared that I'll freeze,forget the techniques and will shout at a mate. I feel abnormal.

Thanks for the reply. Many times. I changed surgery. I am a bit overweight. My b.m.I is 27. I had one dopey doctor suggest the 5/2 diet to me. I don't want to lose weight. I did in 2013 and my b.m.i was 24,down from 30. It messed with my head. I went into a deep depression,didn't shower and hardly went out of the house for 3 months. My "Safe weight" is 11st. I was 12st 2lb. I went down to 10st and felt uncomfortable. I was 11st 7lb last September,now 11st. One doctor said that it was healthier for your bones to be a bit heavier. I'm frightened that when i lose my appetite,i'll lose weight and i don't want to. I eat healthy because i don't want sugar diabetes like a relative of mine. I don't want to become 20st,but i don't want to be skinny either,like when i was at school. I got teased for it and as a result would eat more,sometimes i would be sick. Ever since then i've had a weird relationship with food. How do you cope?
