Good morning. I would be happy to help you and am online now....just let me know when you are online and we can meet in the chatroom.
Good morning...I would be very happy to help you
I am available now
Thank you....Ive read your question thoroughly....it sounds as though you had OCD as an adolescent....though with your post-partum depression it sounds as though the obsessive thoughts have worsened considerably since then....does that sound accurate?
absolutely. It may also be helpful for you to know that I am a theatre graduate, so am incredibly creative.
thank you....the creative thought process that you possess...lacking in others...is likely contributing to the OCD growing more intricate and difficult
the thought that you identified at the end of your questions sounds more along the lines of depression as the thought itself is more intrusive and almost "crippling" you. It sounds thought that the thought originated from the OCD and sustained with the depression
Does that sound accurate?
so you are saying that my OCD intrusive thoughts are primarily causing this? and the depression is a result of coping with these thoughts? I was running a theatre school for 5 years and I had a focus to put my creativness to good use, bit now I'm doing nothing and I keep pondering on my waster opportunities
thats usually when it occurs actually. when we are left to our thoughts without other distractions such as work
but i've tried to distract my mind of late, but the thoughts are so powerful they take over my brain. It isn't natural for a human to analyse the end of life so much is it?
intrusive thoughts are incredibly difficult to just distract oneself from......its not that unnatural to analyze the end of life...thought not to the extent to which you are doing it. May I offer my suggestions?
of course please do
I would suggest seeing your GP for a medication evaluation and also a referral for a therapist
Paxil is very helpful as it actually targets both conditions
Does this sound reasonable?
Ok thank you. I have tried peroxatine and it's relatives, but develop heart flutters from them. I used impramine while pregnant on my second child and am still using it now....... it has no side effects but sleepiness and this has effected my relationship as my husband want's me full of energy. So I will suggest to my GP that I would be willing to try paxil
sounds good.....is there anything else I can help with or answer for you?
actually paroxatine is paxil in its generic name but there are other medicines to help...definitely talk to your GP about it further...and definitely get a referral for a therapist
Do you have any further questions that I can help with or answer for you?
Do you have any further questions at this point ma'am?
