Hi, i am a 24 year old male suffering from Pure'O'. These sick thoughts r killing me and i feel like im believing them and think i am a evil person. Anyone with similiar signs and is anyone on risperdal or sertraline because i feel like the medication is not working at all on me.
Fimd a friend and O willgo!
What's pure O?
I feel like that sometimes too, then i feel guilt and shame alot...
The light shineth in darknes.
And the darkness comprehended it not.
Hello, I used to have OCD. And although your post doesn't say what the thoughts are... I know how you feel. I used to be on risperidone but i dont think i had this then.. Mine has gone away so it can be 'treated' I did CBT and was put on Fluoxitine, for my OCD. Honestly it did help me... The CBT helped me realise that when these horrible thoughts come in... They're just thoughts and not a reflection of us, or something we have thought up... Does that make sense.? I also Learnt to just leave the thought... the more you fight it, or try not to think about something it will keep coming back.. So just do nothing.. I know it sounds difficult and your probably thinking what the hell. But once you get used to ignoring it, this cycle of thoughts will break... Your anxiety will be high at first, but will lower over time...
Hope this post makes sense... Take care...
i responded to your other post in the foroum just wanted to say welcome again
