I have been living with ocd now for 22 years. I have been on several different medications, all have which have worked relatively okay, not great. But I have experienced a past where my life was atleast livable. Within the last 3 years, the stress of my marriage has really grabbed onto my ocd and has made it unbearable. In turn it has put even more stress on my marriage. I see a therapist who my husband believes isn’t helping me. He wants to see more progress. And doesn’t understand why I’m not doing more to help myself. I honestly feel like I’m trying it’s just such a hard disease. I explained to him that my goal is to get better and I’m doing EPT. But it’s going to be a struggle the rest of my life. And I feel hopeless because I feel I’m just going to be a disappointment in his eyes the rest of our lives. I’m a prisoner of ocd and don’t feel anyone will ever want to be with someone like me.
