Our 27 yr.old son has had ocd since he was 7 yrs. old, with it becoming severe and disabling when he turned 19. He saw his new psychiatrist on Nov. 26th, he said in his 35 yrs. of practice, he has never had a patient suffer as much as our son, the bad thing is his psychiatrist won't be back until Jan. 28th,2008, he did raise his depakote from 1500mgs. to 3000mgs. which made him go from racing thoughts, to just feeling hollow inside, we lowered it to 2000mgs, and his psychologist, who is like family, is going to see if him and our family doctor, can put him on something that will help. He has been on, prozac,pamelor,luvox paxil,anafranil,wellbutrin sr, wellbutrin xl,celexa,zoloft,lexapro,paxilcr,effexor,depakote er,xanax,ativan,xanax xr,klonipin,geodan,zyprexa,risperdal,seroquel, and buspar, he has been in 2 hospitals, and had cbt and erp therapy, with no relief from the ocd, he is currently on 150mgs. wellbutrin xl,40mgs. prozac,10mgs. klonipin, 6mgs.xanax, 2000mgs. depakote er, and 1000mgs. of the supplement N.A.C , and he chews 4mgs. nicotine gum. This is the most down we have ever seen him, he just feels like his is a hopeless case.In the past year he has also gone through severe emotional mood swings, from severe ocd, to severe anxiety, to severe depression, to severe irritabilty, almost rage at times, which is not like him at all, he is the most caring and loving person you could ever meet, he is just hurting so bad. He has these lyrics to a song which he says describes how he feels, they are, "I hurt so bad inside, I wish you could see the world through my eyes, it stays the same, I just wanna live again", please, if there is anybody else out there that has had trouble finding a medication that helps, and has found something that works, please let us know, and all of you who believe in prayer, like we do, please send up a prayer for our son, his name is Matthew.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse.
