... with anybody who can relate to what I am saying. I am 24 & have had OCD for as long as I can remember.. It honestly has been the pain of my life. I don't even know where to begin with it, anyway I finally went to the doctors about it 6 months or so ago and they prescribed me with 50 mg sertaline, upped to 100 mg a day after two weeks. It has helped quite abit but the OCD is still clearly there! It's like I can't control my thoughts and it drives me mad sometimes. I try telling myself "it's just OCD" blah blah blah and before I know it me reminding me of this has then become a repetitive thought and I find myself repeating the same things in my head over and over again! I have had OCD in so many different traits. I have worried on occasions that I am going totally insane but reaserch and speaking to a counsellor have agreed that it is OCD. The doctors referred me to the counsellor and to be honest from seeing her a couple of times I didn't really gain much, I don't know what the next step is? Do I go back to the doctors and see about upping the doseage... I hate the thought of relying on tablets but if it's gonna help me at the moment then so be it... If I was free of this my life would be perfect I just feel it's holding me back so much and it is so frustrating!!! Any comments are much appreciated
