I don't really do any actions compulsively, I do not check the stove or the locks 20 times a day, I am very far from organized, I can socialize well, I no longer fear for the safety of my family if I do not flip the light switch on and off 3 times, I am relatively academically successful but I cannot stop the impulsive thinking. I cannot focus sometimes. I do it without realizing that I am doing it. Sometimes, my mind just wanders and it can be very difficult to focus. I recently just experienced a period of complete "brain fog" (at least thats what I read online) where I wasnt distracted by other thoughts but rather my mind was completely blank. I couldn't do simple things like reading a sentence without getting distracted halfway through.. I was trying to do Math Homework earlier today but I was constantly getting distracted by unimportant, irrelevant thoughts. Not scary thoughts but distracting ones. After that my mind just went blank, something I dont think I have experienced before. I have skipped shcool today and given up on my homework.
That is why I am here now, seeing if there is anyone who can maybe relate to this. Perhaps it is stress, I have been very stressed out lately for various reasons. maybe its depression? maybe it is ocd or something else? (Again, I have not been diagnosed with OCD, and I haven't seen a professional yet, which I plan on doing) I've been trying to find out but I just cant. There are times where I can focus extremely well if I am motivated. Maybe I am just stressed and tired. I am not bothered by anxiety, but stress rather. I think it may be OCD but I dont do things compulsively that much anymore. I'ts only really the thoughts in my head unless I do not realize it. Does anyone have a problem similar to this?
