Re: WHAT IS THE BEST MEDICATION FOR PURE O? Does CBT work?
My pure-o is terrible. I have violent/sexual thoughts and images that can relate to religion, family and friends. I obsessive over how my life is going to change, or whether these thoughts have scarred me, and whether I'll be able to look at religion, family and friends in a clean way. I also obsess about wishing this never happened to me, and how I am different from all my friends etc. I could never act on these thoughts, and they scare the pants off me.
Just know that you're not alone, I feel that my OCD is the worst of all. I'm scared to tell my Phsyciatrist of the things I've thought about, I just sort of give him an idea.
Oh and by the way, I just recently started on Celexa. It doesn't seem to be helping me much yet, althought it has only been about 5 days and my doctor told me it could take many different tries on different meds to help treat my obsessions.
Know that these thoughts are not your beliefs, they are usually the opposite of what you believe in. This is why they cause you so much anxiety and stress!
