    Well everything you described sounds like a person with an extreme form of OCD which is a mental illness. You say you can't afford therapy but what is your future going to look like? You may want to make it a priority to find a doctor because your health is the #1 thing. Do you have family that can help you? This cannot wait.

    The only one out of my immediate family is my Mom; but she is disabled and poor and I actually help her out. I asked my Dad for money at one point, but said he is in a tough financial situation and cannot give anything. I just am going to have to wait until I am in a stable financial situation and / or have insurance before I can go to therapy. Thanks.

    Let your "yes" be "yes", and let your "no" be "no". All these vows are null if you want them to be.

    God knows you're struggling and don't mean these "vows" you think you're making. Apologize to Him letting Him know that even though you can't control your making of these promises that you know HE will help you through no matter what. Ask Him to forgive you because you want out of these things that you thought were so important at the time but have come to learn that now is the time to break free of these so-called 'vows' and then go out and shop at Target, have some coffee at work, etc...knowing that God has set you free.

    You're going to have to go through and break each vow you made verbally, using your god-given authority. You're not supposed to make ANY vows, so stop doing so in the future and repent of making silly vows that make no sense.
