My Therapist Tried To Brain Wash Me

I knew something was wrong with the sessions. I mentioned on a previous post some red flags. I feel betrayed. I am worried I am still under some sort of "Brain Washing".

He did a lot of the things mentioned here: https://science.howstuffworks.com/life/ ... ashing.htm

Weight/Texture Related Anxiety

Hi all! I'm Evan.

So, all my life, as long as I can remember, I've had this intense, strange kind of anxiety/panic. It would wake me up in the middle of the night in panic attacks, give me this feeling of intense sheer terror, give me nightmares, and it sounds absolutely absurd when I think about it. It's triggered by the feeling or sight of something being too light, small, or thin, or intense size ...

Panic Attacks While Meditating

Hello all,
I tried meditating again last night, it is something I have been trying to make a routine of.
Every time I do it I end up with worse depression and panic attacks. I also end up not sleeping. Why might this be? It does not relax me, I end up in a hyper-vigilant state when I do it. It was something I was hoping I could do before bed to help me sleep.

OCD and negative thoughts


I just found out from my therapist that I have OCD. Dealing with the negative thoughts is hard, but I'm wondering, how else does anyone deal with that?

We were talking about starting a medication, and possibly sending that recommendation to my doctor, but we haven't talked much about it yet.

Has anyone had good experience with that?

I'm just wondering, as I'm just learning I have this.
