Ocd Stuff
Are you obsessive-compulive?
Do you see a therapist?
Do you think ocd can have anything to do with the foods I will or will not eat? It is not a weight issue. I am ok with my weight, but I have always been an extremely picky eater like 4 or 5 foods is all I have ever eaten. I have seen a psychologist one time and he said then than I had ocd tendencies for some other things I went to him for and wanted to give me a rx that day. I didn't think it was wise to start medicine when he had only heard 30 or so min. Of my problems and it being the first time I went. Also, some of the people in his office/waiting area basically scared the hell out of me. So, needless to say, I didn't go back.

I feel you! Neurological issues can be quite scary! What medication did the psychiatrist prescribe to you? For someone weary of beginning medications, I would highly recommend cbt (cognitive-behavioral therapy), in combination with a well-tolerated ssri (selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitor). The ssri I would recommend would be lexapro. As it is almost universally accepted by patients both young and old. I have taken a variety of medications in conjunction with cbt, and have seen an almost toal disappearence of my once severe ocd. Finally, I can not reiterrate the need to talk about the disorder with your therapist/psychiatrist, as this well help to alleiviate some of the anxiety associated with ocd. Good luck, and keep me updated with your progress! Feel free to email me at any time for more advice!

Ocd Here!
I have ocd as a partner with tourettes. I am on zoloft currently (2+ years) and have tried prozac as well. The meds help with the counting, but not with some touching (texture) issues. I almost enjoy it at times (i always have to grab my wifes bottom or hold her and rub her bare back). Kinda weird, but she loves the attention. If you have any questions or thoughts, i'm checkin in occasionally so feel free to write. Too many other things going on to write!
