Hi I'm Annie and I am new to this site. I have been off work nearly four weeks now as my brain is telling me my workplace is contaminated. I believe that my home is contaminated and every time I start cleaning my home I contaminate something else and have to start again. My hands and arms are very sore with washing and using disinfectant on them. I am despairing. I have been on a list for CBT since February 2012 and I understand it will be another three months at least before I can be seen. My GP has referred me to the local mental health team and I have an appointment with them a week on Friday. Last time I was referred to them I had an initial appointment but they never got back in touch. I am very anxious that my employers will want rid of me if I don't go back to work soon. I seem to be going round in circles.
