You don't need a specific diagnosis to be treated generally, as you've found - the GP put you on an SSRI, the frontline treatment for OCD, depression and anxiety. Even if you'd seen a psychiatrist who said you had HOCD, the treatment outcome would have been the same.

Existentialism and anxiety tend to go hand in hand when mental illness is involved, it inevitably leads to a dark place because we're predisposed to negative/nihilistic conclusions. This doesn't mean life is without meaning, it's simply a product of the illness.

We can't tell you if you have repressed memories or not (though I''d suggest that if there's doubt, you don't), you really need to be speaking to a psychologist on the topic.
