I am really new to this whole thing. I have obviously had this all my life, but have just been "figured out" at 23 years old. I am about to get married and the anxiety with everything drove me over the edge to finally go to a doctor. I really would like feedback as to how common it is to obsess over little noises that don't bother anyone else? That is my most socially crippling problem. I avoid class and social situations to avoid people smacking, biting their nails, tapping the table, etc. They drive me crazy and I can't seem to let it go. I also count things, moreso as a child. I check my hot rollers obsessively all the time even though I've never left them plugged in. Another question, I have just started Lexapro 10 mg. Is this normally the dose? I have been on it for 2 weeks and see some improvement but am stuck in my room as we speak because there are people over who are eating. So, obviously its not perfect. Thoughts?
