Hi, my name is Luke and I'm 16 years old from Yorkshire. Ive spoke to a Doctor who has referred me to CAMHS. He said to me that he thinks I have anxiety, OCD and depression. I went to CAMHS when I was 14, and the person I saw said I had mild depression and anxiety. But, and I greatly regret it, I didn't do anything about it until recently. I wont be for a couple of weeks until my local CAMHS and contact me because they are jam packed at the moment.
The OCD related side I remember doing obsessive things since I was 7-8 years old, but to be honest I never told anyone about it because I was embarrassed and being so young I thought that it wasn't an issue. I realize what I do isn't normal behavior but I cant bring myself to stop. I do things like repeatedly turn a light on and off, type the backspace and space button back and forth on a keyboard, turn the volume on my tv to a cirtan level, pressing buttons so many times of a remote control, order my books and models in cirtan orders and I find it hard to part with the silliest things. It feels
like if I dont carry out cirtan activities that something bad will happen but im not sure what. Can someone give me some advice please until I can talk to CAHMS?
