Hello all. I am new to the Anxiety/Depression community and just wanted to quickly introduce myself. I've been battling OCD for over 30 years and depression off and on during that time. My OCD gets in the way of everything including my ability to hold down a job so right now I am (once again) not working. I went for many years being able to keep a job but in the last ten years it has been very difficult. It is all very frustrating and depressing and lately just completely overwhelming. It feels like things will never change. Outside of the normal complications OCD brings I find myself often riddled with fear....immense and uncontrollable fear. It's like I can't do even the simplest things because it all makes me so fearful. I'd love to hear from anyone who has struggled with this kind of fear and has been successful in overcoming it. I'd also love to hear from anyone who has used/is using ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). It would be great to hear from those of you who have OCD but anyone who has used ACT would be great. Thanks so much! I look forward to interacting with this group.
