GAD AND OCD
I was diagnosed with GAD and possibly having the symptoms of OCD. I used to work got sick with Cervical Dystonia which caused me to have GAD and later developed OCD. I just fear of going back out there to work again. Fear that if I go to work I might get sick. I don't want to go back to having Cervical Dystonia again. It was very painful for my neck and head. My head would lean to the left and twitch back & forth. My head would feel full like a wet sponge that wants to be sweezed out. It was a terrible feeling!!! With the help of God, medications, family & friends I was healed. Now here comes another problem that I'm having "OCD". I'm saying to myself this is just great I had a rough time with one disorder now I'm faced with another one!!! I'm taking vitamins, fish oil and sometimes St. John's Wort. They don't seem to work maybe it's because they're only supplements. I've been on Lexapro and they said it's good for treating both GAD & OCD. I haven't feel and result like it worked for me. Maybe I need a stronger dosage or another drug. The problems I'm having with OCD is repetitive of washing, checking and counting. It's very nerve racking and I wish I never had it!!! I say to myself why this had to happen to me!!! All I want is to be is healthy again no more sickness. I feel my life is going down the drain because of this disorder. I wish this disorder would disappear forever and never come back!!! If someone reads this and is going thru. the same thing like me, please respond. Thanks!
