Re: help......

Chris, enough has been said on this message board already for answers, but if that isn't helping, you need to go get help. Doctors for meds and therapy. don't suffer when you may not have to.

I get that "need to tell" feeling constantly. And you are definatley not alone in your gay ocd, it's terrifying at first but just know that people are here for support.

Re: help......

What kind of things is it that you feel you need to tell?

I think this is not untypical for OCD. Actually I have had it myself too. The need to tell is the obsession, and then telling would be the compulsion, right?

Are you in therapy for OCD?

Re: help......

Hello again,

if you want to go into therapy (cognitive-behavioral therapy ios the therapy of choice for OCD), then maybe you can talk to the doctor who prescribed the medication?

I would also recommend the book "Brain Lock" by Schwartz, it has helpful tips on how to deal with obsessions and compulsions.
