Can I help you any further?
I'm not sure................this tummy obsession I have is driving me nuts! Everything about tummies is fair game. I've tried to get help, with little success so far.........sometimes I view this tummy obsession as a good thing, but mostly I don't because it's taking over my life.................have you ever heard of a tummy obsession before? Do you know of anyone who could treat my obsession of tummies?
I have heard of all different kind of obsessions before. It helps to realize that the target of the obsession (in this case your tummy) is not the issue. It is the feelings you have and the symptoms you suffer with.
While it may be pleasurable, you still feel bothered by it which means it should be addressed. Talking to a therapist can help a lot as well as medications. Between talking to someone and the medication, you can feel a lot better. Obsessions tend to be biochemical as well as behavioral so by going to therapy and taking medications, you cover both.
ok, I'll look into meds......................thanks
You're welcome! Take care
