    The thing I hate the most about OCD is that I know every single moment how irrational and useless it is, yet it's so difficult to resist it. I hate doing irrational things and, even if it's getting better, when I find myself washing my hands too much or spending all that time on a phrase that just won't get out of my head, I feel so shameful and childish.

    I feel that way too. It's distressing when you know you're acting crazy. I can't say I feel childish or ashamed but it freaks me out that I have so little control over my behavior. I'm so glad I only have a mild case of it. Some people have to roll around on the ground outside their house in order to just walk in through the door.

    I've not been diagnosed but am pretty certain I have some serious anxiety issues. Some really simple things like calling somebody I don't know (or do know to be perfectly honest), dealing with large social groups, being at the register at work when it gets busy, or just experiencing an unexpected situation, I get paralyzed with anxiety. If it's possible I will just disappear into the background or leave but I try not to do that at work. I am getting a little better at handling it but it does crop up whenever I start feeling out of control or overwhelmed by sensory input.

    I have decided that pharmaceuticals are not for me after watching my mother die a horrible death due to overprescription of everything in the book. I self medicate with herb and I use a lot of my alone time for meditation. But I am putting myself out in social situations because I don't want to retreat from the world. I want to learn to handle it better.

    Sounds like social phobia. I'm not into meds either although in some cases I think it probably for the best. And like I said before, physical exercise is a great way to kill off some of those butterflies in your stomach.

    i was diagnosed two years ago with depression and anxiety. the depression was easy to wipe out, and after 1 mishap i was given the correct medication. we've had to raise the dosage once in a while as i've built up immunity, but the amount i have now is pretty solid and the depression itself has not turned up again recently. as for anxiety, i'm fairly certain i've had it for my whole life but i was only just diagnosed for it, and i have emergency medication for anxiety attacks and the depression medication at this dosage can also serve the anxiety disorder.
    i think both of them are a lot better today, but i'm still dealing with effects of the social anxiety etc that i'm working to get better with!!

    SAD and GAD. I can't tell whether INFPs are more inclined to have anxiety, or they're just more likely to join the forum :/
