Hi im 45 years old and had mild ocd 20 years ago after the birth of my 1st son. it went away on its own and didn't happen with my other children. fast forward 20 years later after a death in my family I started with health anxiety then out of nowhere bad intrusive harm thoughts. I didn't know what was happening to me. i thought i was going crazy! i was petrified!!! i started having panic attacks. I did alot of research and realised that this is what happened after my 1st pregnancy! it makes sense now. I have been on Zoloft for a year and still have the thoughts. they make me sad but do not bother me any more. I want to get off meds because I have gained so much weight . I am so afraid the anxiety will come back!
