I am new to this forum and have a feeling that I have OCD or a sub-set of OCD (HO-OCD). I am nervous about seeing a therapist first so I am wondering if I should first get an actual confirmation that what I am dealing with is OCD (i.e. seeing a psychiatrist). I truthfully don't have full confidence that I have OCD which is why I need an expert's opinion. I've seen an OCD specialist in therapy before but I didn't find it helpful in understanding if what I am experiencing IS OCD, and not something else. I know that therapists can't make a clinical diagnosis, but I feel I need to be thoroughly assessed. I'm looking for some advice. What should I do?
