    The reassurance police would like to reassure us that refusing reassurance is reassuring us that we are going to get better. (smile).

  1. Trigger yourself. Sit with the anxiety until it dissolves. The tricky thing is we don’t know how long that is going to take based on the trigger strength. Minutes, days, .,,,
  2. There are previous topics on quetiapine.
  3. Gov.uk says you need a letter from your doctor. You could look up other types of excuses & use those if you qualify.
  4. If a kid scratched his butt the worms couldn’t get through the pants. So no reason to react.
  5. Also, don’t look at porn if it triggers you.
  6. Those on meds say 8 to 12 weeks just like the Harvard. What are your expectations for this medication?
  7. Just do what you did for previous themes & it should respond the same.
  8. In MotherJones magazine which I was quoting it states “Psychiatrists and other mental-health professionals (I am a practicing therapist) know that any given antidepressant has only about a 50 percent chance of working with any given person. But what most people — patients and clinicians alike — don’t know is that in more than half of the 47 trials used by the Food and Drug Administration to approve the six leading antidepressants on the market, the drugs failed to outperform sugar pills, and in the trials that were successful, the advantage of drugs over placebo was slight. As it would hardly help drug sales, pharmaceutical companies don’t publish unsuccessful trials.’ Most important is that people take their own advice.
  9. I just think about something else. We choose what to think about do we not?
  10. Ah yes, that does happen. It changes themes. One reason this happens is because of not understanding why it happens. Aka the why of OCD. Master that & one can control OCD it won’t control you. Which is recovery.
  11. I don’t take any medication because of the side effects & placebo effect. Placebo effect accounts for a large amount of the positive effect (Harvard) too. The posts don’t mention this & where are the side effect lists? It’s certainly worth a shot There is a film Eight about a gal who can’t get outside because of her OCD. You might find It interesting.
  12. Sounds great. First find a meeting place with chairs. It could be a coffee shop. Plan a day like first Saturday of each month & a time. A local church might give you space.
  13. You can also search the forum for fluoxetine, its a pretty common topic. Fluoxetine (trade name 'Prozac')
  14. Everyone using the forum will have their own reasons for being here, as everyone will be at a different stage in their journey with their OCD. The forums should be a safe place to explore and be accepting of whatever a user chooses to bring here.
