Dear all, a quick one.......
I've been on
3 fish oils
4 prozac + 1 trazodone + 1 tianeptine for OCD
due to increased stress, eating of a cake, not enough sleep, my OCD symptoms worsen considerably.
a small section my inner left brain seems to 'move' from time to time. Can anyone explain to me what's going on? is there a worm, devil or what?
i have read that bananas help in the illness and started taking 4 bananas a day to raise my serotonin levels. do bananas (5HTP)really help?
i suspect it's not just my serotonin levels, but also dopamine, NE and GABA stuffs as well. How do I confirm my theory? Do I need to decrease my dopamine and NE levels?
Also I have a severe problem here. In the past, I would walk on my galfren's left side with my bag on my right hand. But out of a sudden, I wanted a 'more perfect' walking system. I would ruminate and think about the perfect way to hold her hand, walk by her side etc.
THIS IS DRIVING ME INSANE! PLS HELP. Pls advise me on how to remove my desire for perfectionism and how to be contented with my old style of walking. The compulsive thoughts are really killing me. Is exposure and prevention the BEST way to combat it? Eg. Exposing myself to the situation causing the anxiety and preventing myself from thinking about it? My compulsions are based in the mind and so how do I not think about it? How do I change my personality to be less perfectionistic?
My galfren is thoroughly annoyed with my condition and I don't want to lose her coz I LOVE HER!
PS I feel better when I pray........
