Re: What Is Wrong With Me??
Yes, you are normal, you have not been on the medication long enough to know if it will be effective yet, it can take up to 12 weeks for medication to begin helping and some medications do not work very well for some people. This DOES NOT mean your making it up in the slightest, its a fact that one medication may not work aswell for some people as another and vice versa, if you do not see any effects from your medication within 12 weeks then you should try changing to a different OCD medication. Try your hardest to get into therapy, that is the best form of treatment for OCD and you will really benefit! If your family aren't supportive, try finding some information on OCD and showing it to them if you haven't already. Or take them along to the doctors with you! OCD can be a crippling disorder and support can be very vital, so if you cannot get your family to understand try and find someone who will be able to! If you do not feel you have any friends etc that you feel comfortable talking to about this problem then these boards are always here with many people who understand what you are going through. Try to remember your not alone. God bless
