Do you know why itís happening? Like are you having negative thoughts? I thought you got a pill crusher?

Iíve developed anxiety over showering ever since I started working from home last year. Iíve talked to my psychologist about it and she gave me some advice but itís hard to follow sometimes and I let slip.

I donít know why itís such a thing. It seems dumb to be anxious over showering.

I donít have any advice but have you talked to your therapist about this? Iím sure they would have some advice.

Thank you

Yeah Iíve talked to my therapist about it, she mentioned trying relaxation techniques. I just have a hard time letting go of the mental anxiety around it. we didnít discuss it the past two times we talked though because we were more focused on dealing with the mania/psychosis then depressive episode.

Iíll bring it up again to her and see what she says. I donít know what happened that triggered it.

Possible trigger:


Yes I got a pill crusher, Iíll have to call and clarify how Iím supposed to do that with the pharmacist. Like am I supposed to take it in food or something. Like in yogurt? Like does it have to be specifically In food. Or with food. I donít know why I havenít been using it I honestly forgot about it. That could take away at least some of my anxiety. Not all my pills can be crushed but the big ones can.

I see. My gag reflex is super strong, Iíd probably puke rather than choke. I would talk to the T specifically about those thoughts and why they may or may not be realistic?

Definitely ask the pharmacist about th pill crusher. Iíve never used one. I used to take pills by chewing up 2-3 m and ms and putting the pill into the mix and swallowing.

Thanks I'll call the pharmacist on Monday and see what they say and I'll talk to my T about the thoughts. I never thought about bringing those thoughts specifically up to her before so thank you I guess I never really verbalized them before I posted them here tonight because I felt if I did so it would make them more real and I guess I didn't want to acknowledge them for some reason

One thing that sometimes helps me is telling myself, ďthis is going to be easyĒ before I start something anxiety provoking.
