does anyone use humor to diffuse their OCD symptions? I most certaintly do.If I could not be funny or crack jokes, or try to loosen things up when talking to people, I can honestly say I would have already ended my being on this earth.

Please if anyone  receives this message, I would love to hear from you. I have found through reading many of members posts,blogs whatever you want to call them. No one really gets seriou about the subject brought up, that being getting into a totally candid discussion about what is really bothering us???

 OCD can be a tough thing to joke about. If you're not careful it can be macabre, dark humor. It can be done though. I'm the creator of this group. You asked for a response, how can I help you?

I definitely try to use humor to defuse my OCD. This is all kinda new to me within the last 6 months, so after I accepted it, I started sharing what was going on in my head with my best friend. We've been friends for over a decade and she knows me better than myself sometimes. The struggle is real oftentimes, but the other day when I shared what my OCD is like...it's like I can't stop thinking about something, there's a broken record in my head and I can't stop thinking about it until it feels "just right." What got her was that even if there's a solution, I still have to work it over until I'm okay with the thought. I believe I have what's called True-O because I don't have intrusive thoughts. So, after I finally share this huge burden that I've been scared to share, she's amazed at what goes on in my head and at first I akin my thoughts to a hamster wheel...I just can't stop...and if I do, I get right back on with another thought. But she went a step further and said that my brain sounds more like those figure 8 race tracks where drivers have to NOT crash in the center. We joked that it's like my everyday thinking is like mentally contolling an entire race! It was funny for us but also interesting to have such a surreal analogy. Best friends are great.
