    They gentleman says you only get 6 therapy lessons on NHS....WELL if you really want help, pay for treatment yourself. Work and use the money for treatment.

      Amie well maybe WE should be trying bloody harder and giving more funding to our NHS not trying to privatise it like the conservatives are. If we end up like America, mental health treatment won’t be the only sector suffering.

      Amie it’s the principle, if they pay taxes they should be able to get all the treatment they need on the NHS. You wait months to get to the top of the waiting list, have you six session which aren’t enough to change much, then you’re back at the bottom and your recovery goes backwards. We should be treated the same as those with physical medical conditions

    My therapist is a wonderful and specialised patient with OCD. CBT has helped me a lot! I have also medication. I hope these people are getting help because it is possible to control this disorder. I have now better coping skills,still sometimes when I'm really stressed and my anxiety gets worse,so is OCD.. I don't clean that much anymore,my hands used to bleed or got infected coz I used so much different cleaning sprays. But collecting things,It's bigger issue now.

      Fluvoxamine meds helped me. Ask your doc about it. I have had severe ocd before and now I am functional.

      I know someone who is coping in this way. Seek professional help, alcohol is not the answer.

    So how do they get it on with their partner when they have OCD? Is it okay for them to touch their loved ones.

      msergio0293 we don’t all abstain from sex, there are so many types of ocd and most don’t affect touching others

      I don't think they have any partners at all

    Who names their kid Tuesday. Why not Sunday or Monday. Saturday and Friday sounds pretty good.
