  1. Around 8 year ago I saw someone about my OCD and was quickly prescribed a medication. I don’t remember what it was but I do remember feeling very happy an hour after taking it. However, this effect wore off shortly after and I was back to my old self. I didn’t take it for very long as I didn’t want to take medication or get help. My job is very physical and I’m out in the sun a lot. One thing I’ve noticed is after work I find that the obsessions are easier to ignore, even if it’s for a little bit. Maybe it’s because of the Vitamin D after spending hours and hours in the sun or perhaps my body is creating more Serotonin, I don’t know. Recently I’ve been trying over the counter medication as I’ve realised I can’t help myself purely on will power alone. So far I’ve tried: 5-HTP - I didn’t know I had to use this with green tea extract for it to be effective but I stopped using it after reading about bad long term effects of using it. L-Theanine (200mg) with N-acetylcysteine (500mg) - I took these three times a day for over three weeks. After no effects, positive or negative, I gave up on it. Bacopa Monnieri (Bacognize, 300mg) - This is what I’m currently taking. I read it’s meant to regulate the neurotransmitters in your brain and has effects on ADHD, we’ll see.
  2. Thanks. I’ll definitely stick around. Sorry to hear that. I don’t think it would matter it I worked or not, I’d still be miserable. It’s just frustrating, I feel so unbalanced.
  3. Hey everyone. My names Petar and I’m 25 (male). I have no friends, no real relationship experience because I’ve struggled socially since I was a kid. I live at home with my mum and sister. I decided to join because of my issues with ADHD and OCD (as well as anxiety in general). From time to time I will get completely obsessed about storylines or characters from movies or games and can’t let go. I have no control over this, I’ll just be watching a movie, playing a game or watching a play through of a game and my brain will just latch on to it. Right now it’s the story of Jessica and Blake from Outlast 2. I actually feel like I’m Blake and can’t let go of Jessica. I spent all of yesterday just pacing around my house basically and feel depressed. On top of this, I’m generally very unhappy. All I do is work and sit at home doing compulsions due to my OCD. I hate going to work so bad that I started betting on sports in hopes of getting out but ending up losing all of my savings (over 13K). Anyway, I thought I’d join, say hey, and see if anyone has similar experiences.
