So…for the past 8 months I have been under extensive therapy. Mainly CBT.
the first session was quite funny as I had a full hours argument with my counsellor about wether I was a hypochondriac or just have OCD.
She thinks I have OCD.
“Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts that produce uneasiness, apprehension, fear, or worry; by repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing the associated anxiety; or by a combination of such obsessions and compulsions. Symptoms of the disorder include excessive washing or cleaning; repeated checking; extreme hoarding”
the argument was that although I have obsessive thoughts I do no way in any shape of form wash excessively or clean…..well sometimes. Mmmm I do have 2 litres of hand sanitizer at home…
