New Aussie guy ocd sufferer. 4 Years, 10 Months ago  
Hi everyone.

I just joined and posted an intro.I would like to share my ocd story.

I had ocd since 2006.My life changed that day ocd started.At the exact moment ocd started it was like a little electricity ran across the top of my head.Thats when I knew I was in for a rough time.

I got on with the day.Felt weird.Something was wrong.I tried to go about my daily life.I went to grab the junk mail.I froze.I just couldnt move them.I didnt understand what was happening.This was a common thing that srarted that day.It kept going.

The next stage of ocd was it changed how I looked.I'm normally one of those guys who takes great pride in my appearance.The ocd killed that.Here are the things ocd changed:

unable to shave,shower,wash my hair,trim fingernails/toenails,trim my hair,etc.
unable to prepare food/cook food/eat food when I'm on my own.
unable to move most things around my home.They mostly stayed where I left things.
unable to change into new/clean clothes.
unable to remove recyclables/rubbish from my home.
Unable to join internet forums(I'll explain this after).
It stopped me from saying various things.random things.

Basically,my life was a mess.Here's the best news.Within one year I could afford to start spending money to get rid of ocd.In the last 5 years I've had 5 practitioners.The current guy for heading for 6 years this year.Brilliant guy too.

I dont know if this version of ocd has an actual name.If there is one for it please tell me.
If you have similar problems please reply so we can compare notes.If you're an Aussie too,say hello.

Thanks for reading my post.

I'm happy to know that you're doing better. By "practitioners", would they include conventional Medical Doctors, Psychiatrists and Psychologists? I'm interested to know what your professionals have diagnosed you with and what type of treatment you've undergone to have brought you so far.

I've experienced Major Depression in my younger years and many of your symptoms are familiar to me. Inability to move or remove things in your home is a kind of OCD. I still struggle with OCD at times but not to the extent as in the past.

Thanks for sharing. I hope you continue to make progress and stay well

Re:New Aussie guy ocd sufferer. 4 Years, 10 Months ago  
Hi.

In 2007 when I started to look for someone to treat my problems.I had decided to look for those practitioners who do any form of muscle testing.Kinesiologists and some chiropractors.Having had chiropractors over the years who did muscle testing and the respective techniques I continued in that direction.

I tried Kinesiology first as I hadnt tried that.After about 4 practitioners I found one woman who had helped for around 6 months.I had to keep trying to find someone who could offer more.

This eventually led me to amy chiropractor.He was trained in the USA for thorough muscle testing.Even though he's an Aussie.These type of chiropractors are now being trained much closer to home in New Zealand so local chiros dont have to live in the USA to be trained.

I should point out that its common for some chiropractors to specialise in whatever and are required to go overseas to learn these specialist fields.

I'm making great progress.The rituals are mostly gone.JUst those annyoying straightening things.Most of the things ocd prevents me doing I can now do.Not a bad effort.

I havent been treated by the medical world.I havent been to a hypnotherapist and I havent done CBT.I havent touched a prescription.

Do you remember the old joke of the guy who every morning gets up at 6:00 and stomps around the outside of his house. His neighbor finally comes out and says, "What in the world are you doing? Every morning, I look out my window when I'm fixing my breakfast, and there you are in your bathrobe stomping around the house." The guy says, "Oh, well, I'm keeping the elephants away."

"Elephants? There are no elephants in this neighborhood."

And the first man says, "See how well it works!"

anxieties.com/ocd-four.php


I link this story and the page it's on for the sake of looking at OCD from the bright side, one that can bring us some new view about OCD.
I haven't found yet one page that has promissing forecasts in overcoming OCD.
Seems to be life long disorder and seems to have something to do with the brain structure.
Although, person can be trained to live with OCD and have some life.
Training only can be given by highly educated profesionals, where I don't fit in by any means.
I think they are suggesting use of some psychiatric meds, too, but sufferer (or their family members) would need to sign for its permission to be used.
It's good to read that you done some different things that worked for you.
Has any of your "practitioners" ever tried any trick to make you accepting of social life and social activity, to at least some degree?
Reading helps alot in understanding the world around us, but we can't figure out: what the flower smell is, unless we smell it.
I would consider some sort of CBT, at first with doctor, family or any friends, until your tight nerves get loose at least 0.1%.
Reading from nearby Psychologist and watching his videos, it seems that CBT can give some improvement. It can't heal, that's for sure, but it can make a difference.

I chose to get rid of this disorder as soon as I could afford to.I spent the money finding altenative practitioners.Not one a medically trained,and here I am recovering.There's very little left of this disorder now.Just in the last 8 months my life has changed so dramatically I find it hard to comprehend.I set the goal to get rid of it and everyday I'm winning.I found someone who is curing me of it.It works for me.My practitioner here has got other clients who also have ocd.As well as other people who have other disorders and chronic health issues.They're all making progress too.

I believe in hypnosise.I've had it done over the years for personal issues.I even learnt self hynosis.I'm still looking for the ideal book on self hynosis.There's a lot to choose from.
