The good news is you recognize you have possible OCD. The next steps maybe to reach out and get help. Maybe therapy along with a med? You just have to keep tyring different methods to see what works best for you and your family. Maybe find a doc/psychatrist that can address the anxiety/mood swings with a proper diagnosis.
It sounds like you could really use some support and help. It took a lot of courage to reach out on this forum.
Don't give up there is help out there.
Can I ask how long you've taken this medication for- As I've been on many medications throughout the years.. I just switched from Celexa 20mg to Sertraline 50mg. This is my 3rd day on it.. My switch over has been great imminently, since I had already been taking an SSRI.. It's already helping with my OCD and panic disorder.. I have struggled with this since the age of 18, now 35.. You do have to give the medication time. Which is the hard part. Stay strong, fight through it! Your not alone. I'm here if you have anu questions. I know what yout going through. Keep positive!
