Hello

I was diagnosed with OCD 6 months ago. My main condition is intrusive thoughts.

I have completed 15 of 16 sessions of CBT with Exposure Therapy. It has not helped so I was put on Citalopram 20mg two weeks ago. So far my thoughts are as bad and my anxiety is far worse especially I the mornings. I take the tablet in the morning because I understand taking it in the evening can effect your sleep.

Sleep is the only time I relax. At best 6-7 hours with two or three breaksfor the loo because I have an enlarged prostate.

I would like to talk about my condition and share experiences. Where on the forum is the best place to post OCD threads.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum.
It sounds like you've really committed to the CBT and exposure therapy, and so it must be disappointing to find that things haven't really improved a great deal for you yet.
I hope that you find this forum helpful.
