Hi, my name is Andrew. I've had anxiety issues for many years, but lately things have gotten more out of control. The past two years of my life have been extremely stressful, and as a result, I've seen my anxiety and stress levels get even worse. They've recently morphed into OCD symptoms. I've never really had that before, but it is stressful and starting to be debilitating. I know that this is due to high stress levels, but they are so hard to control. My body just doesn't respond the way I want it to. I've been taking an SSRI (Celexa) to help cope, and am trying to find the right dose. However, it's no cure. I'm just really freaked out by these OCD like things (e.g., going for walks, I feel like I have to stay on the right side of the sidewalk, or else I have to "re-walk"). In the back of my mind, I fear that suicide is inevitable, but I am going to try everything before that point. I just need some support, and know that reaching out to others is important. Thank you.
