And I have to keep repeating things or else I don't know that to do. I'm on no medicine. I'm able to get diazepam 5mg which isn't mine that makes me nervous. I tried St John's which did nothing. I feel sick.
As much as I hate meds, I was on Luvox for ocd for 3 years. It worked great, then just stopped working. Seriously consider seeing a psychiatrist. I also have anxiety & depression but antidepressants don't really work for me. Luvox stopped me from overthinking. Everyone is different on how meds work for them but it was great for me. The diazepam won't stop the ocd feeling. And herbs as St. John's wort don't usually help most people.
You need to just tell your self that you will be ok and believe it. Go see your dr cause no one wants to live like they are stuck and can't enjoy life. If you have a panic attack just tell yourself it will soon be over and find somewhere quiet and wait it out. All panic attacks have a start and a finish and sometimes you need to just let them do their thing.
I have been on zoloft for 9 days now for anxiety but it also can be used for OCD.
Best of luck and hope things work out for you.
I agree with crazygirl, you really need to see a psychiatrist to get treatment for your OCD. Don't deprive yourself of life with something that is treatable. Feeling 'stuck' I find common with me; the inability to make the right decision but making the wrong one over and over.
Blackrabbit8; I agree with Stephen, and crazy. This is not easy and I do understand I was very close years ago of being in this same position. What you have mentioned that you have taken will not do it with a case like yours You really need to see a Pdoc, Now is there anyone that can go with you? option 2 There are several doctors that offer it;s like a Skype computer home visit. Google it in your area.There are so many things out nowadays that can help you. Please check this out and know you're not alone, There are many people like you or very close to your problems and see if one of these will work out. Or last go to the hospital as an in patient and remember they will not let anything happen to you and this is no life you're having right now. Please let us know what you do. Concerned.
