Hey guys and girls,
I'm new to this so please be gentle. As you've probably been over this subject loads!!
I've had OCD intensely for several years (started slowly when I was 8, but got intense from 16 and I'm now 24).
I've been to the doctors and I went through 6 months of CBT and hourly sessions of psychology and discussing my symptoms.
I suffer with symmetry and repetition which means I have to touch everything evenly with both sides of my body, hands, feet, etc to make sure everything is fair. This obviously happens every second of my life.
Does anyone else suffer with this type of OCD at all?
my CBT helped a little but didn't change much and I went back to what I was doing, anyone have anymore tips to stop or decrease the anxiety?
I have heard of SSRI but I don't know if it will help with my OCD? Has anyone had them with the same condition and do they work?
sorry about the boring story, but I hope you can help me x.
