OCD apparently affecting my balance : Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Forum
I was diagnosed with OCD years ago, but haven’t been in treatment for some time. I’m starting to get some clues now that things might be getting a little out of hand again, so I’m using some CBT strategies, and I’m planning to bring it up to my doctor.
Anyway. I noticed a really weird thing.
I’ve been avoiding stepping on lines. Any time I’m standing or walking, I’m thinking about it, as well as counting my steps. I recently realised that, to avoid moving my foot onto a line while I’m not looking, it seems I no longer semi-conciously shift my feet to adjust my balance while standing. The result is that I’m falling over a lot. At least ten times a day.
Has anybody else had similar experiences, for instance with compulsions resulting in changes to behaviours you didn’t realize you could consciously control? Is this going to go back to normal once I get my compulsions under control?
Thanks, and cheers.
