OCD controlling your life? It is mine!
Hi all, I'm Kim and I'm 25 and I was diagnosed with OCD in 2015 and have battled with it ever since. OCD has caused me to do some crazy things, I've almost poisoned myself from mixing toilet cleaners and bleach, I can wash my hands with bleach anything upto 20 times a day and every day I live terrified that my children will become sick or be taken away from me if I dont complete these compulsions over and over again! I've taken fluoxetine before but now my GP has started me with Sertraline I've recently just been put onto 150mg so I'm hoping to see a difference soon, I'm on the waiting list to do CBT again for the 3rd time, 3rd time lucky I hope! I'm interested to hear other peoples experiences with this life controlling disorder was there ever an end? Does it get better?😫
It definitely can get better- you just have to keep up with it and know what affects you and never give up.💪
