OCD help DX
So I'm having problems with my OCD. I can't stand people chewing, and sipping, and gulping. It's driving me insane. People are so rude! How do I get over this? It's literally making me want to pull my hair out. I've spoken to my psycologist about ti, and all she said is, oh that's OCD and then we spoke more about OCD. She never told me how to cope with it. Just oh yea, people with OCD can be very rude, about others chewing. I'm like okay, thank you Captain Obvious, didn't know that already. Here's the real question why I'm posting. How can I cope? I feel like crying when someone is chewing gum, or is chewing in general, or drinking. It annoys me so much! Espeically since both my parents are absolutely horrible with table manners. You would think they didn't exsist at my house. My father when he eats it's worse then watching a lion attack and eat a carcass. When he eats wings or anything with bones, he eats the bones. Snaps them in half literally chews on the bone for a good ten minutes. Sauce all over his face, it's completely disgusting. Even my friends get disgusted. I've spoken to him about it, hasn't done anything. I've been begging him to eat properly for years, but no, apparently there is nothing wrong with the way he eats.

:arrow: OCD.

I don't know much about OCD, but all I would say is to maybe ask your psychologist out right how to cope with it, that's what they're there for.

With people I'm close to, who know I have OCD, I usually politely tell them... you know, "Could you please close your mouth when you're chewing gum?" which quiets it a bit. Some people just have those little things that I can't bear, I have to leave the room. Like, I've had problems when someone has a bad cold, and they're really congested, and they're just sniffling so loud every five seconds. I can't take it. I just have to remove myself from the room.

Re: OCD help DX
Politely asking them never works at home. I usually leave the room ,but sometimes I can't, and I'm screaming inside. Oh, my gosh! Colds are like a living hell when someone in my class or home has one. I guess I should talk to my psycologist, once I start seeing her again.
