Fear of diseases

by Winston

I was trying to find a solution to my problem when I came upon your site.

The problem that I have is a strong fear of diseases. I developed it more than a decade ago. I'm 32.

The symptoms go like this: I cannot use public toilets, for fear of getting contaminated. I therefore avoid any long journeys. I cannot stay in hotels. If ever I was forced to do this, it would cause me great anxiety. Again, if I am on a public place, and if someone coughs or sneezes, I am in big trouble.

Of course I sought medical help, and the case was identified as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and I was given medication. I tried it for a year or so, but without any result.

Now I have other problems. When I am home, and if I keep the windows open, I get a feeling that there is someone outside, and I feel that he throws something like wastes on me. I even get actual feeling of something falling on me. I therefore take extra care to keep all the windows closed from evening onwards.

I cannot say how difficult it is for me to live with this kind of thoughts troubling me all the time. Any help is much appreciated.

Diseases, syndromes etc, are a myth.

Spinal nervous symptom is more important to your health tha you would think. Beginnings of a spinal problem can begin at birth. The symptoms are a coming from a spinal nervous system not operating to its full potential.

When the atlas is not in the orthogonal position the spine will try and compensate and worsening health of body and mind will occur. If a person does not do anything about it a chronic condition will develop. find a U,C,S, only on www.upcspine,com. read www.thespecific.com lisen to mucc.us/

Pharmaceutics industry is a huge drug cartel and pharmaceuticals root meaning is sorcery. Do not let medicine practice its sorcery one you. They are the ones supporting your fear of all kinds of things including the aids thing.

Negative Thoughts Taking Control

Hello Winston,

Thank you for contacting Positive Personal Growth.

We are what we think we are, what we believe becomes the way we are.

Obsessive compulsive disorder is dreadful. It would be too easy for me to say, change your thoughts and change how you are, because I feel you need better advice than this.

I have two links that may be of benefit to you. The first is:

Obsessive compulsive disorder

This is to Internet mental Health, which may, I hope, give you helpful information.

The second is:

Obsessive compulsive disorder

This links to the National Institute of Mental Health. Again, I hope this may be of benefit to you.

As an alternative, have you ever thought of going to a hypnotist to help you combat this disorder?

Would you have a practitioner in your area who is trained in Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)? This may well be another area of expertise you could try.

I hope I have at least given you some hope of getting on top of this disorder, and I wish you luck for the future.
