Anxiety Disorders/OCD?


Hi, about few months ago(that's when it all started), I've been distressed, terrorized, and disgusted with unwanted thoughts in my head. Sometimes, they make me literally puke, I get so upset and so traumatized by them. I have all kinds of intrusive thoughts running in head; ranging from murder, pedophilia to incest(my obsessions keeps changing every day!). All the disgusting stuff you can imagine. I also worry a lot about symmetry, and if something isn't symmetric, I get nervous, my heart starts to run very fast and I get really irritated. Latter is true for all intrusive thoughts. They're occasional, and when triggered, really hits me bad. I lose all hope. I feel like an evil person, even though I haven't done anything wrong at all. Jesus, why would I! I really need Help. As I am writing this, my mind tells me that I am faking it and that I really am something bad. I doubt so much! Is this OCD?

Hi Jack,

It seems to me that your anxiety attacks and anxious thoughts may be due to hypoglycemia (

This can be treated by going on a hypoglycemic diet (

I suggest yon test yourself with the

Testing for Hypoglycemia by Questionnaires
  Nutrition-Behavior Inventory (NBI)

  Hypoglycemic Questionnaire (short test)
If you score high it may be an indication that you could be  hypoglycemic (  This is a silent disease that is responsible for excess production of stress hormones - like adrenaline and cortisol - and which may trigger depression, anxiety, OCD or a low self-esteem.

I suggest you try out hypo diet and see how you go.

If you want to you  can discuss this with your doctor or nutritional doctor.
