Hi blue skies,
Wellcome to our forums!
Im sorry you are feeling this way…..
I had severe anxiety OCD…… Ive now recovered from this condition thanks to the help of health professionals…..
My OCD was over a number of things….. I could just have intrusive thoughts and then I would question these thoughts…… my anxiety was very severe
Id have a lot of what if questions
I’d check things over and over again…. eg checking if the door was locked, the oven off
Id have intrusive thoughts of if I don’t do something in particular someone will get sick
It was a really exhausting horrible condition to go through……..
If it is OCD the good news is it’s very treatable I’ve been recovered for the past 4 years going Strong…..
My recovery started from seeing my gp we did a mental health plan together I was also put on a antidepressant to help me to manage my anxiety… I saw a clinical psychologist and a psychiatrist who diagnosed me…. this then led me to a clinic that specialised in OCD…….. this is we’re I learned to master my OCD…… the therapy I did was meta cognitive therapy this therapy changed my life…..
I highly recommend you see your gp and do a mental health plan together and then ask for a referral to a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist who can diagnose..
