    Thank you lots for replying, it means a lot. Mainly mental abuse which has terrible effect on people, very hard and makes ocd so much worse, worn out by it.
  2. If you have contamination ocd and cannot manage on your own,and want to leave abusive partner, my friend said even care home would not have you, so where do you go?

    Thank you to all who replied to my post. I have been having cbt which has finished for the moment. I had heard emdr had good results for post traumatic stress but only that it was being tried for ocd.
  4. Please does anyone know if the treatment EMDR is any help for OCD. It is to do with eye movement. Thank you.
  5. I found your post really interesting thank you for this.

    Thank you for replying. Stomach diarea, wrong spelling,was so bad husband had to go to chemist to get pills, not ocd.
  7. Had camera down throat and stomach. Was told to swallow after 6 throat numbing sprays and swallowed lot of it. Got home and had very upset stomach. Would be grateful to know if anyone else has had this problem. Coped with it all and ocd. Thank you.
  8. Thank you all and thank you ADD for understanding. I looked at other people to learn as children look to learn. Its like riding a bicycle if you think about it too much and go too slowly you wobble. So I looked and they did not spend ages and were not tense so if they can do it I can. Just going round groove should be enough. I cannot be perfect. Hate it when people have not got most of biscuit out and speak to you and bits come out.
  9. Thank you for replying. I used to lick round quickly but then breathed a bit out one day and went to back of jaw and found a whole lot. That is when I started to worry. People lick round without realizing they are doing it. It is when you think about what you do that it becomes a problem. It is the intensity that is ocd as I said before I have seen people do it quickly. I do not stare at them but notice it. If licking round quickly is ocd then there are an awful lot of people with ocd.
  10. The intensity is ocd but I have asked friends and some do nothing, others quickly lick round, other get bits between teeth out and one has chewing gum. Have seen people licking round or drinking and licking. I think people lick round without thinking much about it.
  11. This is making life awful. I lick round mouth gums and teeth after eating and get every last bit out or panic it will get outside and hurt us. Used to get most out then have drink and swish it round. How long should it take and how do other people do it. Thank you.
  12. Hello, have you contacted your local MS branch as they can be very helpful and understanding about your MS. They have get togethers and I am sure someone would be able to give you a lift there. They can give you latest information and advice on all sorts of things. Perhaps at the moment you are too tense and upset to go but it would be so good if you could contact them. I know you can get medication to help with some bowel problems, I know someone who takes medication then goes an hour later which helps with their MS. Alcohol will upset your bowels and MS and your feelings of despair. Take care.
  13. Thank you very much for your post it is just what I needed. Your posts have helped me so much. I hope you are progressing well and I have missed you.
  14. Thank you for your postings, they are really helpful and remind us of what we should be doing.
  15. yes I have had cbt which I paid for and then recently nhs and luckily will receive more in two months with same person who is very good.
