After struggling in silence for many years, I finally decided to get help with my OCD. After a six-week wait, today was my OCD meeting at an iCope service. The therapist agrees that I have OCD, and (once I receive her letter with the recommendation for treatment) I'll join the wait-list for treatment (around eight months),During the meeting, the therapist mentioned that they don't diagnose at that service, they only advise what it is likely to be an offer the CBT/ERP treatment for those who are suffering with OCD symptoms.
I have also struggled with restrictive eating, however I’m not sure if mine gets worse when my OCD does. Try to remember that your body needs nutrients—although I get that it’s easy not to! Stay strong.
