    When did your OCD start?

    This is a bit of a brain dump, so excuse the mess of this post.I’ve never been diagnosed with OCD (that I know of).From an early age, I’ve had twitches. These were always fairly mild, eyes, shoulder twitches etc.I started taking 10mg citalopram in my early twenties due to a combination of paranoia, social anxiety and depression. It seemed to do the trick for a while.In my mid 20s, one night...

    Do I have OCD?

    Hi I'm 30 years old and I've had a tramatic experience lately that has caused me to doubt myself and feel extremely guilty. It all started about a week ago and I was sleeping in my bed with my 1 year old daughter. When she woke up, she started to play with me like put her finger in my mouth and crawl around on the bed. I remember random inappropriate thoughts popping into my head, but I quickly...

    More than One Mental Health Condition and OCD

    My main mental illness (the one that impacts me most) is (arguably) my OCD, but I also have social anxiety, GAD, depression, an eating disoder, and now have been diagnosed with PTSD. Does anyone else have many disorders? It seems to me I just keep getting more and more problems. Its frustrating and I feel self-conscious about it... I guess I just want someone who can relate to me. No one I know...

    Hello Everyone! I am really happy I found this group. I was diagnosed with OCD when I was 14. Now I am 21 and it seems like the older I get the worse it gets. I struggle with obsessive thoughts and if I am off of medication it takes about four months for compultions to develop (routine based). Would love to just talk to some people who finally understand what I am going through and to not have...

    OCD & Menstruation

    I don't want to offend anyone, but I'm interested on the effect a woman's period has on her OCD. My wife recently started hers and I've noticed a slight uptick in her OCD behaviors. She is on Cymbalta & getting CBT, but I've not noticed this before. She's only been on both for about 6 weeks now. It's something I think we should all look at though. Thanks for your input!--RH
