Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum although not new to dealing with mental health issues sadly! I've suffered from depression and anxiety for years but more recently I've been dealing with symptoms of what I think may be OCD. Just trying to find out some more information before I go to my doctor as he wasn't very helpful the last time I saw him. Hope everyone is well.

Hiya and welcome to the forum. I hope you find us supportive. Can you see another doctor instead of the same one who wasn't very helpful? I would write down in bullet points your symptoms and tell him them clearly and strongly. I think its a shame that when we are at our weakest we often have to be strong! Its so unfair but try again.

Hi and welcome to the forum, Snow Fairy. It's friendly and safe here and you on't be judged. Calypso makes some good points, I'd also add that I myself have elements of OCD/BDD and I know how hard it is to break the cycle. You can make friends here if you give the site a chance.
