Introducing myself... OCD and Anxiety

Recommended Posts

Just introducing myself. I am a 35 year old woman who has been suffering from OCD since I was 14. I finally gave in and got help when I was 20-21. I should have done it earlier, but it just wasn't something people talked about and wasn't as "acceptable" to talk about back in then. I have been on so many anti-depressants, I can't even count them. Most recently I was on Lexapro and Abilify. Abilify was my miracle drug for OCD. I have never found anything that I could actually say "hey, this works for me!" before Abilify. Unfortunately I had to get off of it due to weight gain and increased blood sugar. I got on Pristiq (mainly for the weight loss) and now I have seen my pdoc, and I am working on getting off the Pristiq and getting on Luvox. I have been on Luvox about 10 years ago, but I am willing to give it another go. Anything to try to get this unquiet mind a little peace!


Hope to have good discussions with you all!
