hi, am shambo from india. am 22 and have just completed my engineering grad. Been through severe ocd for 3 years now. been on clomipramine hcl for last two years.And i responded perfectly to the medicine but whenever medication withdrawal is attempted ,my ocd relapses. In a country like ours it is still a less talked about issue. so am in search of a proper cognitive behavioral therapy strategy. My ocd makes me anxious about some possible dangers to my dear ones. Previously I used to get anxious about some possible fatal road accidents to my parents. That I later overcame by going outside a lot. later i realized it was a kind of exposure and response prevention for me. The two intrusive thought that haunts me most now is from minimal physical intimacy I fear that my gf may get pregnant ant the more powerful and disturbing one is. Around 3 years ago I had my girlfriend's private pictures which I started to fear that can get public. My rituals included overwriting the digital storage multiple times and looking for traces of those private pictures. whenever I require to take my laptop to service center I start panicking that any sector of my hard disk may still have traces of those pictures. can anyone please suggest me any CBT specially ERP strategies?
