MY STORY | Living with OCD, Anxiety & Depression

This is my story …

If you are struggling with your mental health, open and talk to someone. At first it is difficult, but trust me, it is worth it in the long run. I really don't know where I would be today if I didn't open up to my parents.
If you don't feel you have someone to talk to in your life, you can send me a message to instagram @mia_dinoto and I will answer you as much as I can.
Or you can share your story in this video and others can give you advice if they did the same. You are NOT alone and you only know that things will improve. It's hard to believe, but trust me.
I love you guys and thanks for watching ♥ ️

MY STORY | Living with OCD, Anxiety & Depression

Comments 35

  1. My anxiety causes physical symptoms like digestive issues, heart palpitations, etc. because everyday I’m so scared of just being ill and I’m a major hypochondriac. I restrict so many foods from my diet bcuz I’m afraid it’ll cause digestive issues and I don’t wanna go back to school because I think all those what ifs and it sucks! I’m going to therapy (have been for a couple months) and I hope it starts working soon..ugh I’m so done with this..Rn I’m afraid that I’m getting sick (like a fever) bcuz my eyes burn, my shoulders and arms are sore, my teeth tickle, and it’s just making me not feel great..I’m rambling oops. Well, good luck with your anxiety, OCD, and depression Mia <3

  2. mia it definitely sounds like you have an eating disorder. these feelings of self hate and needing to compensate for eating food and starving yourself are extremely disordered. I really really urge you to get help before it gets worse. once it gets bad it’s really hard to get out of it. you are so loved and you deserve to not be tortured but food everyday. message me on Instagram @emmakdoheny if you want to talk. I understand, I’ve been there ❤️

  3. I have had bad depression and anxiety and food problems since I was 8 or 9 I hate opening up and the time I confessed to my mom she wanted to take me to a therapist but we don’t have the money to pay so this was my therapy session 😂😫thanks if you are reading this

  4. omg it sounds like you might have developed an eating disorder. I think I have one as well. I have the same thoughts and feelings about food and my body.

  5. I have anxiety too I have to take medicine too I also have to do stuff a certain way all the time it is taking over my life I also feel like I have 2 people in my head I can’t make friends because I have social anxiety I can’t talk to people or I feel like I am gonna have a panic attack I have 1 friend in school right now and I don’t have any classes with her but I have no friends in school rn I also have rules in my head about food I can’t eat snacks or have stuff until after I eat a meal, sometimes I start crying randomly because I want friends I just want my anxiety to go away I understand exactly what you go threw and it sucks

  6. so is it your anxiety when you tell yourself “you have to do this.. or else this will happen” or was that the ocd?

  7. Mia I love you so much! I’m going through exactly the same things right now 😔 and it’s hard x 😭

  8. I no how you feel. I have struggled with mental health from a young age, had every type of therapy there is. None worked for me. I have been on medication for 12 years I am 23. I am autistic, OCD, adhd, selective mute and also have an eating disorder. You are very brave to speak out about it. Dont give up

  9. Holy shit, you're a mess. You should NOT be in LA – land of the superficial, where everyone is obsessed with looks. Go back to Maryland. Get a nutritionist to give you a meal plan. It sounds like you're not eating enough healthy fats, which is why you're getting hungry (and then binging, and then purging).

  10. Love your vulnerability. I pray that you can go to Jesus the ultimate healer and comforter. He can take away all your anxiety’s and fear. I hope you’re able to find freedom soon! God doesn’t want you to live in such bondage. I’m sorry you’re going through this. Praying for you sweet girl!

  11. Mia in the end when u talked about working out and food, that EXACTLY me right now! But now starving myself. Please Mia stop starving yourself but I 100% know what your saying because very single second of the day all the think about is body, food, and working out. Love u and love how real u r!

  12. Thank you Mia for opening up. Mental health is such an important topic and there needs to be conversation about it. I don’t have OCD but I do suffer from anxiety and depression and at first it was hard, I would cry for no reason and had panico attacks, but then, by the Grace of god panick attacks stopped and so did the crying. Speaking of the workout I hate it because I don’t like sweating, so instead I chose swimming and it’s helping me so much so maybe try that, you never know ❤️ and whenever you have an anxiety attack just remember that your therapist or even a friend are just a phone call away 👍🏻

  13. Thank you for being so brave❤️ this really helped me as I have anxiety and ocd too so thank you for being an inspiration 💕

  14. its good to be open , you will do good , i get hated alot because of my ways but i dont even listen to the haters no more ect, being a picky eater is fine , i would eat the pumpkin pie but not the crust , pumpkin is very healthy yum !!! , great vlog , i think its spiritual thing also , your faith will be stronger

  15. When I was 13 I had to tense my right arm the my left leg then my right leg then my left arm if I messed up I would have to start again and I did it every night for like 10 minutes and sometimes I did it in school

  16. I was the same age as you when I went through this, for about a couple years. Im sorry i wish i could tell you how to stop, but i know how hard it is and you try but you just cant. but what i can say, is time and maturity will get you there. I had these issues when i was 14-18 years old, and now im 24 years old. My body literally hasnt changed and yet im so happy and comfortable with it. you will get there!!!! i also started anxiety medication and it worked a little, i know what you mean about the mix of good and bad days.

  17. I struggle with very very severe anxiety too and then the anxiety leads a lot of depression. I know what it feels like to cry and cry and cry all the time and just feel stuck in a whole of saddness. Thank you for sharing because i know its not easy<3

  18. Hey girl, you don’t need to worry about how you look. Your beautiful, way more beautiful than me. You don’t even understand your even skinnier than me.! I promise girl as long as you eat something healthy each day you’ll be fine I’m mean you can eat that pumpkin pie it’s a once in a while thing!! You got this girl 💓💓💓💓💓💓

  19. I’ve been dealing with this kind of stuff for a while. I’ve had hospitalizations but my parents refuse to get me a therapist or medicine. Because of that it just keeps getting worse to the point where I’ve almost hit rock bottom. Every time I try to get help they just yell and threaten me and it’s like I’m trapped and can’t do anything about it. It’s a horrible feeling.

  20. I am dealing with anxiety right now, I have had such a hard time leaving the house as well. I'm very glad that you posted this so that I know I'm not the only one that is going through this.something that has helped me is praying and looking up Bible verses about fear and anxiety and trying to memorize them and say them aloud when I start getting anxious. Here's one I like to use "cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."1 Peter 5:7.

  21. My story is: I was in 5th grade, I would isolate myself in my room all day, I didn’t wanna go anywhere. My parents were worried. I got diagnosed with ADHD. I got put on medications, the first day I took it, I got really sick, so I didn’t take them. I was sad.. I never knew what suicide, depression, anything. I just thought I had ADHD. So, in school everyday, I would be isolated and alone. I weighed 98 pounds in 6th grade, while getting bullied at school. Then, I got to 120 pounds on the last day of 6th grade. I would eat and when i cry. Then, in the summer of 2016, I was going into 7th grade. I got harassed on a daily basis “ash your so dumb just kill yourself im 19 and your 12 and peace” I just cried for hours. Then I thought… If i just kill myself. They would regret it. I remember one day, in 2017.. Our bus almost got hit by a train. I wish it did hit and I was the one who died. I tried to hang myself hours later.. It failed. I just fell asleep and my mom woke me up at 6pm and I just made excuses. I went to the ER and they said I had strep but I was lying. One week later, I texted one of my friends. That I was gonna kill myself. She told a teacher. My parents found out. I was isolated and alone. Like you can tell I was unhappy. Then.. I came home the day the guidance counselor told my parents. I came home they both were crying their eyes out. My 9 year old brother confused.. lost.. I got a therapist. We talked.. then I had to be in the guidance everyday all day long. I couldn’t be around anyone. Then the cutting started… I had to go to a mental health hospital. I felt like I was in jail. I was there for 2 weeks. I got out. i got put on medications. I’m almost 2 years clean. I’m 14 years old and have a happy relationship. My boyfriend told me yesterday he was worried if i have a eating disorder. I won’t drink anything but water because i’ll get fat. I eat once a day maybe none.

  22. This is EXACTLY what I experienced when I was younger. I always thought I was just a crazy person and that it would never get better, and honestly when you're in middle school and early HS, those thoughts are so dark and can really lead to bad things. I wish I would've gotten a diagnosis like you; unfortunately, I think I do have OCD (intrusive thoughts) but mine doesn't have as many classic markers as yours might. The therapists and specialists I saw when I was younger just diagnosed me with depression (that was starting in 5th grade). I was put on medicine for a bit but it did nothing and I don't like the idea of becoming reliant on a pill because that freaks me out to no end. Side note but I actually almost got held back in 6th grade because I missed so much school because I was just too freaked out to go. Things started getting better for me though later in HS, so don't lose hope. I think our OCD mixed with teenage hormones is really tough on our brains and bodies and once the hormones settle a bit, I think things start to mellow out. Not disappear, but lessen a bit. If you have any questions, feel free to DM me on instagram, I'm always willing to share and help out! @buckal

  23. Well done for being sooo honest. U are very brave. Things will improve for u. My daughter had similar issues so keep talking and attending ure therapist. Xx

  24. I’ve gone through a lot of depression and anxiety this year too, I’ve been cutting myself and just sad every day! But it really does help to talk and even when you feel like things will never get better, please please keep trying because I promise one day they will for good! It just takes some time but day by day it will get better! Keep talking to us, you don’t need to hide anything if you don’t want too❤️❤️❤️
