  1. Thanks @AmandaG, I appreciate your advice. I'm going to err on the side of caution on this and throw it away. A bowl of Cous Cous is not worth all this stress Jumbo
  2. Hi guys, I bought a bag of Cous Cous a few weeks back and was just about to eat it. As I was opening the bag I noticed that the packaging had split and been covered over with sellotape. I really don't know what to do as it is triggering my contamination OCD big time. What would you do? Would you still eat it or would you throw it away? I'm not sure what to do, my OCD is confusing me! Any opinions would be appreciated. Many thanks Jumbo
  3. Thanks for the info Jedi I might ask my GP for a perscription. Take care buddy Jumbo
  4. Hey @The last Jedi Glad to hear you are feeling better I hope you don't mind but have a couple of questions as regards Clomipramine. How long have you been taking it and at what dose? Did it take long to feel the benefits? I'm thinking of trying it you see. All the best Jumbo
  5. Hopefully the letter won't be too much longer mate. Don't be afraid to chase it up if you have to Keep us informed buddy Jumbo
  6. Yeah mate, give the receptionist at your GP's a ring tomorrow if you get chance. At the very least they may be able to give you a rough idea of the waiting time to see the urologist. Let us know how it goes Jumbo
  7. Hi everyone, Nick Sireau (PHD), Prof David Nutt (director in the Division of Brain Sciences at Imperial College) & Prof Naomi Fineberg (runs an NHS specialist clinic for severe OCD patients) have started raising funds to run a clinical study into using psilocybin as a possible treatment for OCD. Prof Nutt has already published scientific papers proving that psilocybin is a strong antidepressant and he is looking to see if it is also effective in helping people with OCD.
  8. Hey @daja I had exactly the same thing happen a few years back... It turned out to be a varicocele (varicose vein.) Completely harmless but scary nonetheless. Have you heard anything yet as regards your appointment with the urologist? Don't procastinate on this one buddy, chase it up if you have to. You can't muck around when it comes to your nuts! And try not to worry too much about your Dad... As @Avo said, the hospitals are adhering to very strict protocols right now. Plus, I'm sure he is far more concerned with your health of your clankers than he is with Covid 19. Let us know how it goes Jumbo
  9. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss Valamist. I too lost my Mum to cancer, so I understand the unbearable pain you are going through right now. Try to stay strong my friend and remember the good times you spent together. All the best to you and your family Jumbo
  10. Thanks @OB1 and @BelAnna for the advice, its very much appreciated Fortunately, I managed to get a slot with Asda for next Wednesday evening. I was checking their website at around 4.30 this morning and 2 days worth of slots appeared. They were all snapped up in seconds! I'm gonna order as much pasta and chocolate as they will allow Jumbo
  11. My God! I've managed to get an order with Tesco.... But not until the 4th of May! If only I could hibernate for a fortnight. Jumbo
  12. Oh no! I can't imagine that is pleasant for you at all mate
  13. Hi @Aguineapig For many years I was an avid cyclist and up until about a year ago I used to ride my bike everywhere. Sadly, as the OCD started to get worse, It became dangerous for me to be on the road. This was because I was constantly checking the floor for syringes whilst out cycling (crazy I know!) At one point, because my attention was focused elsewhere and not on the traffic on the road, I ended up slamming into the side of a car. Thankfully, nobody was hurt, but my front wheel was bent beyond repair (and I had to pay for repairs to the Car!) After that accident I decided to retire my bike as I realised I was a danger to other people! Thanks for the suggestion though mate All the best Jumbo
  14. Hey @daja How you coping with the current situation? Now's not a great time to have a contamination OCD is it mate? 😉 I deeply regret all those online deliveries I canceled back in the day. I won't be doing that again in a hurry lol! You live and learn eh? Take care Jumbo
