I went to see a new counseler yesterday.

After talking to him for about 30 minutes,

he diagnosed me with OCP.

A lot of what he said did make sence.

Anyone else been diagnosed with OCP and

if so could you explain it a little to me?

Re: Ocp

Do you mean OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) or OCPD (Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder)? They're actually quite different. What did he say that made sense? If you elaborate a little more, I think I can try and help you more.

Re: Ocp

Well, he said OCP because at first I thought he said OCD but he kept talking
and it was apparent that he was saying OCP.

He said that I take care of everyone besides myself....
That, is very true.

Sorry at the moment most of what he said is just a blurr.
I woke up not too long ago and need my coffee.

maybe this little bit of info. will help people to help me???

Re: Ocp

He also said that I need to start taking 10-15% of my time spending it on just ME.

That is almost impossible. I am married, mother of 3, 17,15, and 5.
Plus, I babysit at home part time.

I told him about my history;
Got married at 18, my husband was shot in the head and killed
when I was 24. at that time I had my 2 boys, 31/2 and 1.
3 yrs. later my brother died of cancer.

Got remarried at 32.
A year later I had my little girl.
Quit working at a bank after daughter was born.
After she was born, I got very depressed and got on Paxil.

About 3 yrs ago I started abusing pain meds (lortab).
Got up to 20 or more pills a day.
My friend who I confided in, called a dr. and got me in the next
day, and I started Methadone treatment.

Got over the treatment, everything was ok, then my son had surgery.
Ended up taking a few of his pills, now I am back on the methadone again,
but only 2 pills a day.

Had a recent upsetting thing happen to me, about 1 week ago, I had a full time
girl I was babysitting, and the mother called the morning I was supposed to have
her and said that she was finding someone else to watch her.
I had the girl over a year. I asked her if I had done something wrong; she said no.
Well she ends up spreading a rumer that I slapped the girl across the face.
WRONG! I would never do that.
I called the mother, she was very blunt towards me, I told her to stop
ruining my reputation because I never hit her daughter.

(This is what I had told my counseler).

Also, I told him that I was still on the Paxil.
He asked me what dosage, and I told him 60mg
and he about fell out of his chair.
I told him that a different therapist had suggested I do that.
He said that is quite a HIGH dosage.

I guess he thought he could diagnose me just by my personality
and what I was saying to him and my actions? I dont know.

well thats it for now.
