I am a 30 year old female. I was diagnosed with OCD at 17. My symptoms started at age 8. I'm usually full of energy and never stop. I have been seeing a therapist. With the help of therapy and Prozac I hope to be able to develop a closer relationship with my two young daughters(my mind has been consumed with OCD thoughts, this has kept me from being able to spend one on one time with them). My OCD has been extremely draining to my mind and body. Not sure how I feel about going from one extreme to another so quickly. Is this normal? I try to continue with my normal mind OCD rituals however, I notice the medication is preventing me.
