Ive just been to the family planning clinic to get my regular top up of medication

the nurse was a bit brusk to say the least

She did say st johns wort effects the pill drastically OOPPPPPPS!

and then asked why am i taking THAT

after i told her i had OCD her tone changed from once she was talking to a normal university student to now ooohh someone with a mental disorder better not listen to them to much

She then assumed that i hadnt got a partner and told me to go to the doctors to get help.

This is the reason why ppl are so reluctant to tell others so called normalies that they have a problem

I do wish people would treat us as everyone else

:grin:

:lol: Mmmmm, people are all too ready to put you into a little classification box and make all sorts of assumptions about you.

Maybe when you're feeling a bit more positive you could go back and give her the address of this web site and suggest she visits it :)

Sorry your experience was a poor one :)

Hi there,i am sorry your expereince has been quite negative,when you go back again,as Catherine says a good idea may be just to reccomend that she has a look at this website.

We are no different and are all the same :) ,we just happen to have an anxiety disorder!!!!!!!

Please dont let this negative experience put you off from going to the doctors etc,but it sounds like you have a positive attitude anyway :) :lol: .Just treat this as a one off isolated incident and move on!!!!!Her attitude was shocking though!!! :) take care,keep strong!!! :)

Love ittykxxx :)

Hi summerleft :) .I am glad though that these people wont bother you particularly just now,it is just down to ignorance on their part :( .I think thats why it is so important for charities like ocd-uk to raise the awareness of OCD. :(

Good luck to your partner for his job interview :) , and keeping your mind busy and distracting yourself from the ocd is a great way to try and overcome the ocd in the longterm!!!! :D Take care.

Love ittykxxx :)
