    Need help

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh I need guidance, recently I feel down. I'm having problems with balancing Sikhi and normal daily tasks. Currently I am in my last year at university and have a lot of work, I also have OCD/Pure-O which means I get messed up thoughts and sometimes they really do get to me. I have quite a few problems so will try and shorten them down. I find it hard to do any path, even the shortest bania will take me a long time to do and whenever I do complete the bani instead of feeling at peace I get headaches. I would say it takes me 40 minutes to do Japji Sahib and 10 minutes to do Kirtan Sohila. It really annoys me that I can't do it my bania quicker, I have been doing this for two years and don't think I can carry on this the rest of my life. I just keep stopping and repeating some tuks over and over again because I feel I have pronounced it wrong and feel like Guru Ji is going to tell me off. Because of my OCD I find it hard to make a decision, I will spend a lot of time considering whether what i'm going to do is the best choice for my Sikhi. I just end up thinking about it all the time and just feel down and exhausted after. I can't control my kaam, every week I just end up going on the internet and doing bad stuff. After I feel sick and I feel I don't deserve to be a Sikh. I get some many bad thoughts, but Guru Ji kirpa I've learnt to live with them, but it kills me inside and makes me worried whenever I get a bad thought about Guru Ji, a mahapurkh or a Shaheed. When I sit down in the sangat it is more hard, my mind just says so many bad stuff about people. Also because of my OCD my mind is messed up, for example sometimes when looking up and where I look happens to be a girl, i automatically think I've done something bad. The time i do bania, are all over the place. I don't wake up at amrit vela and my evening path I sometimes do at 10/11pm. When I go uni sometimes I would reach home round 6/7 but I'm to tired and hungry to straight away to do my Rehras Sahib Ji, so i end up doing it late, sleep late and wake up late. I listen Rehras sahib Ji when travelling from back to uni but I feel guilty, and end up doing it later at home. Because of my OCD, I wash my hands alot and my skin gets bad after a few days. I also live in family which drinks and has meat, so I feel like stuff is contaminated. Currently i am not Amritdari and to be honest I hardly do any simran. My morning routine is: When I go uni I start path at 8 When i don't go uni start path about 11/12 Japji Sahib Jaap Sahib (listen and follow along as much as I can) Tav prasad savaiye Chaupai Sahib (listen and recite along) Anand Sahib (listen but when doing worldly things if at home or on the train) Hukamnama (if i have uni i will read it in the night) Evening Routine: Rehras Sahib Ji Night: Kirtan Sohila Hukamnama Katha Simran (10 minutes if lucky) I feel all over the place at the moment, and not even studying much because I can't find the right balance. Please forgive me if i said anything wrong, offensive or wasted your time. Sat Sri Akaal

    With my beloved Waheguru, I play the game of prem bhakti, if I win, He is mine, and If I lose, I am His. Unknown.

    @singh11 - Daas would highly recommend you to try Hypnosis, Counselling, Yoga, CBT, etc, before deciding to go on western medication. Bhul chuk maaf

    @singh11 A lady's son, who is a co-worker of my mother, developed OCD. His family doctor gave him counselling and his situation improved. If you haven't improved yet brother, then definitely seek professional assistance. Most likely, it will be a lot easier for a professional to tackle your case, during initial stages of OCD. Also, Daas talked to a Pandit jee (who is an Astrologer and a Psychic) about this. He said that if Hypnosis is done properly, then it would definitely have an effect, in the case of OCD. Bhul chuk maaf

    Here, type the Ang and you can listen and learn how to pronounce the shabad. Bhagat jee goes very slow. http://www.gursevak.com/readsggs Bhul chuk maaf

    Nope I feel the doctor won't understand my problem, as my OCD is mainly impacting my Sikhi mainly. I want to take Amrit, but currently I don't think is the best time with all my work load from uni and my kaam problem. I finish uni by June, so hopefully I should be preparing my self to take it. Thank you for the Jaap, but I can't read Gurmukhi is that Ang 818 of Guru Mahraj. Also thank you for replying back
