My therapist says that my OCD stems from anxiety. Makes sense. I get so worried about things that I have to do certain things to feel less anxious. I am still doing my ERP and working through new phases of "being notably uncomfortable". Lately any little thing gets me so upset and my feelings get hurt by the silliest little thing. I can say that now, but not when it is happening of course. Anyway, I tell myself I am fine, just keep going.... Last week I was sick. I thought I had the flu. I started vomiting and there was this ugly brown/red color and it tasted like blood. I went to my doc and said it could be a bleeding ulcer and they asked me if there is anytihng I am unusually stressed about. How do I anwser that? I purposely stress myself out each day. Bottom line, I am thinking of taking wellbutrin ( seems to have worked for my Uncle) to help me cope so I dont get so anxious to the point of making myseld sick. Has anyone taken this for OCD?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
