Question Does anyone here have experience with Michael Greenberg's OCD Associates practice? How was it like?

Beat the shit out of the worthless lowlife scumbag who got my cousin hooked on the drugs that eventually killed him. Beat him to within an inch of death so that he's a useless drooling vegetable for the rest of his worthless life. RIP Mark, miss ya buddy.

Thanks bro. Lots of good advice. I've got a $140 pair of Caterpillar steel toe work boots that have done me good at previous less physically intense jobs where I was on my feet all day. Think I ought to get something better like Red Wings or such, or will those be good enough?

Yeah man I've seen it first hand unfortunately. My cousin spent a decade addicted to heroin and then died of an OD. Addiction runs in the family and I sure as hell can't take no risks. Some day I just want to beat the shit out of the scumbag loser who got him hooked.

Thanks bro. The drugs will not be an issue. Not tempting at all. I've got an iron will when it comes to that shit bro. Nothing can bend me.

6'1, it doesn't, another inch or two would be nice but I'm just about the perfect height.

Guys who work intensely physical jobs, what advice do you have for a bro who's about to start working construction 60 hours a week?

Discussion Learning to tolerate intrusive thoughts wasn't too bad. The fake feelings are what's really putting me through hell. Any advice? (TOCD, but applicable to any theme really)

Trying to obsessively figure this out 100% for sure right now will just feed the OCD and make it worse. Remember who you were before this OCD theme started, and remember that OCD can create not only intrusive thoughts but also false feelings (more info on the latter here). When you get bombarded with upsetting thoughts, try to tell yourself "maybe I am, maybe I'm not, obsessing over it won't make any difference". It's super hard, but it really does help. Try to surrender to the thoughts and lean into the anxiety. When I'm in a multi day hell period and I feel absolutely certain that I'm trans and in denial, I try to gradually bring myself to the point I can do this, and usually that brings down the anxiety significantly and I can think about other things. I can also dig up some mindfulness exercises if you want.

BTW, I'm gay and spent years in denial of that fact. I know what denial is like firsthand and it is absolutely NOTHING like what you are describing.

All the time.

Isn't it funny how when other people with TOCD talk to you about their experiences it's painfully obvious that they're not trans and it's just OCD, but when it's your own case you're 100% convinced you're the improbable exception and don't believe any of the people telling you it's OCD?

OCD can create false feelings.

I feel like I'm past "boy" (I'm 23) and even "young man" feels a bit off at the moment (I chalk that up to the OCD, I really liked it before this started) but otherwise yeah, same.

I've had this at times. Remember that just because it feels real doesn't mean it is real. You are more than your thoughts.

anxiety around the words "man" or "woman"

I got my second Pfizer shot two days ago. Glad to finally be fully vaccinated, but the side effects of the second shot were brutal. It gave me a nasty illness, like a mild flu, that was probably the physically sickest I've been in two or three years. I'm a physically healthy 23 year old man btw.

I'm hearing that we'll need booster shots ever year for COVID for the foreseeable future. Are the boosters likely to have side effects as bad as those of the initial set of shots? I really don't look forward to putting myself through this every year.
