It could be OCD, but OCD isn't likely to be behind your exposure problem. Some medications are used for a lot of different illnesses.

Go back to your doctor, or talk to your probation officer about getting help. The problem is that the NHS is so underfunded that people have to wait for treatment. It's not that they are deliberately messing you around.

Ask for information about your condition, what it is, and things you can do to make it better.

That's the power of the OCD it is so damaging on ourselves and others, you become trapped in your own head despite knowing the damage it does. Do you have any ocd self help groups near you? I have benefited from group support even though everybody's ocd is different: the groups can helps to break down the power of this condition. I think OCD Action has a list across the country. Certainly worth considering if you have to wait awhile for treatment on the NHS.

He prconeese! I live in England as well and think the same the is no help but when really the is I went to my doctor a few month ago and was giving a pack of pills a says is this all you do when some one comes in with a intrusive thoughts you give tables to you Mays well give me a bottle of vodka! In some ppl tho meds is the best but I find now going to the gym helps me talking about it to my family and friends helps also ad go back to your doctor and tell them you want help now not next week or month you want it now!

perhaps,you can read this later,but am still reading book called brain lock

ritton by a doctor,by the way.he says we have a tendancy to blame arselves

for intrusive thoughts.its not the case.our brains get stuck,and we must lern

when that happens,to wait 15 imin,try to think of something different.it says

by doing this,it trains your brain,to unstick itself.he says it works after a while

and eventuly you can live a near normal life.its hard work I suppose,but the

only option ,you have to work at things if you have ocd.good night mydog.
