Hi

I am not very good with stuff like this technically so I may reply to someone personally in error. This is supposed to be my introduction. I'm Sandra I've had OCD for twenty odd years. It was well under control, a 2/10 until mid March and it's gone off the scale again. I never go out now unless I'm desperate for food and I live alone in a flat, not great 🙁

Hi Sandra, sorry your OCD is bad at the moment, do you think you may want to see a phyc again
may be a change of meds will help.

All the best woolie.

Hi woolie and JessisMe

I stopped taking prescribed drugs about ten years ago as I wanted to stick with the SJW which under normal circumstances is enough. It is the pandemic fear that has made me revert to what I used to be like only worse. Hope any other OCD sufferers on here are coping better than I am

So sorry to hear that you are suffering.
Had you thought about getting back on the meds just to get you through the pandemic?

Welcome aboard Sandra. I'm in Scotland too. There are a few people from the UK here. (Lots of different people from all over the world.) It's a friendly and supportive forum. Dead easy to settle in.

Hi Sadgirl

JessisMe, I've been on anti ds several times over the years namely SSRIs, they are extremely difficult to get on, the first 3-4 wks is a living nightmare as they send your anxiety through the roof befire they work. My system doesnt tolerate them well so they'd make me worse tbh. If I go into a shop I have to spend two hours decontaminating on return. Looking for others experience on this 💕
