I have severe bipolar and mild ocd. Im currently on anti depressants/psychotics and self medicating with illegal drugs. In hindsight I realise that the ocd came first and that the depression ( which later progressed to bipolar ) was an offshoot of not understanding and unaware I suffered from the former. I was too embarrassed to talk to my G.P about the symptoms of the ocd and as a result only talked about the depression and was I now believe wrongly prescribed anti-depressants. This was all further confounded in desparation with illegal drugs which led to being prescribed anti-psychotics Fast forward to present, I can now recognise the domino effect it had on me and realise what I really needed from day 1 was some kind of behavioural therapy. Other then being advised it may help - I have never explored this avenue. I would really appreciate if someone who has tried it could condence their experiences into a few choice points of how it works, whats involved and any practical/methods that have worked for you. Many thanks in advance.
