... isn't new to me. First symptoms came out in college 30 years ago, but it wasn't until 2010 that I had a name for it from a psychiatrist. I wondered why I hadn't had disabling, frightening OCD symptoms since college and she said that it was probably because of the Prozac I'd been on for 15 years (minus time off for pregnancies). Well, I am finally now learning that antidepressants/SSRIs can treat OCD. I'm still struggling with the diagnosis, though. My therapist isn't hung up on diagnoses and names. She says that what is important is how you deal with the anxiety, not what its name is. I think my new np agrees with that, but insurance companies need diagnoses. How do I get beyond a name? BTW, I am currently on Lexapro and Mirtazapine and Ativan on occasion. If anyone has some words of hope and perspective for me, please let me know. Thanks so much!
