    My POCD nightmare.

    Hi. I'm new to the forum. I'm in my 20s and...well, basically. I'm scared out of my mind. Now, I don't have a sex life at all, so masturbation has been a big thing for me for a good number of years since pre-13. I also have a foot/tickle fetish.

    Mum Doesn't Understand

    I was diagnosed with depression about a year ago and since then I've been through CBT (which did not work AT ALL), so now I'm on antidepressants, and feeling much better. But I do have days where I feel very low and don't want to do anything, I don't want to go to work, I don't want to get out...

    Constantly terrified, am i the only one?
