i am a female in my 40s I’ve had intrusive thoughts on/ off as long as I can remember, accompanied by crippling anxiety, I am now entering peri menopause & have had bad anxiety for about 3 months, I normally get triggered by a story I read that scares me, this latest one is about child p**** , can’t even write it & I keep going over it & thinking about it, its causing me such pain, & fear. Is this an intrusive thought or I am mad? I’ve just started CBT for OCD. But can’t help thinking what if it’s not OCD & I’m loosing it. I’ve been on citalopram for 4 weeks, but it’s not working yet .

Hi Chrissy, I’ll ask politely if you could maybe expand on what you said in your first post, I’m a little unclear on what it is you want to talk about. Is it anything specific or is it that you’ve been disturbed by what you read in a more general sense? If you explain in more detail then I can give you a more fruitful response.
