Well, I got back from a mental health facility today after being there 8 days for my OCD. While I was there we were just working on getting on a better medication, and now I’m seeking outpatient therapy and support groups. I’m nervous but here I am.
While I was there, I came across some rude PA’s, but some were very patient with me and let me do my rituals and take the time I needed for them. Now I’m home and I just get nervous but I know my family let’s me take my time. The medication takes 3 to 5 weeks to start working so, wish me luck in the meantime! I just need to talk to people who understand and can relate to me and help me feel more comfortable being who I am. I’ve had this illness for as long as I can remember and It’s gotten worse over the years. I finally decided to seek help through inpatient at a lovely place in Georgetown Texas called Rock Springs. Like I said, very good place. Good food, soft-ish bed and my doctor was very helpful and knowledgeable about OCD and told me the ins and outs of the illness and the serotonin in the brain and why I have the repetitive actions and thoughts. Now that I’m hole I’m just looking for a nice group and maybe a few people to talk to because my friends don’t understand and never will no matter how much I explain. I just need someone who does, and it’s my first time reaching out to people lIke me so I’m hoping someone will come forward and give me hope and help me lose the feeling of being alone. So, besides this, I’m a cool person I believe. So if you want to, message me.
