Have had peculiar mental health issues most of my life, starting with nailbiting at 5, becoming OCD a few years later, a tight-fitting clothing fetish afterwards which persists today, the classic combination of depression and anxiety and finally, only within the past two months, something I’m really not proud of - yesterday was the worst day of my life - I have no idea how I will ever live this down. I have spoken to my dad, step-mother, girlfriend and today, a GP, who said he had never heard of anything like it before, with aims to begin psychologist sessions late next month (much later than I'd hoped). I made an appointment with my term-time GP too to see if I could potentially meet someone sooner. I've joined this forum in the meantime to help myself before starting treatment.

Thank you exyz, my family and GP felt the same way. I just wish I had been able to get help sooner as I couldn't process how serious it was. I don't feel like it will be difficult to let the guilt go but I have been so evil to my girlfriend and have had absolutely no foresight at all, which makes me reluctant to feel like I should be allowed to recover, if you know what I mean. Hope this forum provides some catharsis.
