SSRIs (Prozac) helped me with my repeating thoughts to some extent, but that in combination with ERP and tracking bans to create awareness was most effective for me. Anxiety medication tends to make my ocd worse
I’ve done well with Prozac and Zoloft- you need to be willing to do whatever it takes to sit through compulsions because your life is worth it. Have you tried listening to ocd stories podcast?
That's the thing. I'm not motivated at all to do ERP therapy and that's why (in my opinion) I cannot resist compulsions.
I was way more motivated in the past but I just gave up now and feel defeated
@Anonymous It’s not about motivation. You have to force yourself to do it because you want your life back. Motivation might come later. I never want to do ERP but I do it anyway
@Anonymous That's what I meant when saying motivation: wanting my life back. At this time, I don't really feel the strong need to get my life back.
@Anonymous Are you comfortable living a life where OCD is your master? Is that ok with you? Do you want more for yourself?
