Thanks for sharing your experience, baseball55. It's cool you had such a life-changing experience .. I never quite attained that degree of comfort with my psychiatrist, I do have rather stubborn father issues and could never quite get past his masculine authority, though I also partially blame that on my treatment-resistant anxiety.

DBT sounds interesting. I think like I alluded to in the post before, there's the fact that a lot of my negativity and despair feels rational and environmentally-enforced and attempts to change my thinking often feel fruitless, which result me just blaming myself even more for not being able to change.

I've never been disposed towards analytic interpretations of OCD, but one interesting thing is that my (now severe) OCD emerged precisely at a time when I could no longer live in denial of my ADHD, and emerged as another excuse to divert me from it. No CBT practitioner seems particularly enthused about this idea -- that the OCD itself became a kind of defense mechanism -- but my old psychiatrist said it seemed perfectly logical to him.
