I have been seeing a councillor for about 2 months now and i don't feel a difference in my behaviour. I suffer from obsessive thoughts, tapping numbers, clicking my teeth to a specific pattern and continuously checking if the front door is locked. I have experienced many scary things in the past. My councillor says that my thinking and tapping is my way of coping with anxiety. On the other hand I have recently moved countries and my mum thinks that is why its started. I have searched up all the symptoms of OCD and I tick all the boxes. On top of this, recently I haven't been able to do much because it has felt like Im on a ship in the ocean and everywhere i look is just sea, there is no land! Sometimes i can see the land but then a big wave comes and the water gets 10x thicker! I have also had dreams that come quite often. A person is chasing me and no matter where i go the person somehow finds me, he's a bad guy and i don't want him to get me because if he does he will kill my family. Im forced to run from this guy that is everywhere, in every room! Im not sure if i have anxiety, OCD and depression. Nobody will tell me and i really need to know!
