Hi, I am new to this board, but thought someone might could give me some helpful advice. I was wondering if any one else has this problem. I am pretty positive I have OCD. I have to constantly pray, over and over again. Not only that, but I have to repeat Amen over and over until I say it right. It is getting worse and worse. I also have to do certain other things, such as check every room and closet and shower in the house to make sure noone is in there, before I go to sleep. I have to constantly check on my daughter during the night, to make sure everything, is perfect. (I think I might possible be a little paranoid, too. ) Other little things bother me, also, such as a thought will cross my mind, like did I lock the front door? I will know that I did, but it will bother me until I get up and go look at the door. I also have to constantly stare at all the walls around me, just to make sure everything is o.k. Don't know why. This is really starting to bother me, and don't know exactly what kind of help is normally recommended for this kind of a problem. I was recently prescribed Celexa for depression, which helped with my really bad mood swing, (a whole other story), but it made me sleepy. Can anyone help me? Thanks!
