My biggest bugbear; BUGS (not bears though)

BUCKLE UP AND GRAB A DRINK KIDS. I'm concocting this post mid-freakout. I've never actually written a post in the middle of a moment of OCD fear. Maybe it will come across as raw and sincere, perhaps it will contain my usual dry humour, or maybe it will just be a frantic mess of swearing … Continue reading My biggest bugbear; BUGS (not bears though)

I’m being discharged (yay!) but I’m feeling confused about it.

It's 5am in the uk and I'm currently sat stuffing my face with pretzels (aka salty bois) whilst smoll wet feeling-beads sprout from my eyes. Why in the name of sweet baby Yoda am I CRYING because I'm gunna be discharged from my weekly CBT sessions?? The last time I was discharged (after my first … Continue reading I’m being discharged (yay!) but I’m feeling confused about it.

New Bloody Year (and how my OCD reacts to it)

GOOD MORNIN' YA SLEEPY LITTLE SAUSAGES (I'm the sleepy sausage really heh blessup my fellow insomniacs). It's been a ruddy while hasn't it?! This is, in part, down to a shiny new health diagnosis (snore) and ALSO some pretty intense/fun/terrifying/enlightening CBT exposure therapy. I'll talk about that another time however, because TODAY I'm gunna talk … Continue reading New Bloody Year (and how my OCD reacts to it)

Dave the hammo: How a pet has helped me to manage OCD

OHHH DAAAAAVE SIR DAAAVE YOU'RE PERFECT TO MEEE THE MOST HANDSOME SAILOR ON ALL SEVEN SEEEEAAAS (I sing this to him daily but it's not weird in person okay).  Let me begin. My physical and mental health deteriorated at the beginning of the year. I was seldom well enough to leave my home at the … Continue reading Dave the hammo: How a pet has helped me to manage OCD

OCD and relapses; Why this one was so hard.

Hello sweet earthlings. I've been MIA again haven't I. It's been a month filled with illness (fun), followed by some time away (in Wales - not prison), followed by a fresh course of intensive CBT, all sprinkled with clinic appointments and a welcome resuscitation of my social life. (My patchy posts since the relapse got … Continue reading OCD and relapses; Why this one was so hard.

NOTHING SCARES ME ANYMORE (apart from really stupid shit)

For somebody who feels as much as I do (I cried at a mini bottle of Dove shampoo in boots last week), I lack a very necessary and natural human emotion in certain situations. Fear. It's an element of my personality that confuses my nearest and dearest. It's almost as though people are so used … Continue reading NOTHING SCARES ME ANYMORE (apart from really stupid shit)

Hello everyone, my name’s Fuckit Mim.

Disclaimer: There's an unholy amount of swearing in this post (because I just feel a bit sweary and passionate today) so if you don't like swearing then that's completely cool with me and I respect your verbal purity, but my blog is definitely not the one for you buddy.  I wrote a post back in April this year called Sweet … Continue reading Hello everyone, my name’s Fuckit Mim.
