Brief Answer:
I think seeking help for counsellor is requested

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

From the available description there appears mismatch between both of partners and for well being of children divorce is out of option.

In my opinion getting help from marriage counsellor or a psychologist can be of immense help so the problem can be sorted.

In addition I feel seek opinion from a psychiatrist for your wife who may be suffering from irritability due to some disorder.

I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.

Brief Answer:
Seek help of elders

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for follow up.

In case you are not able to persuade her to see a marriage counsellor seeking help from elders of family may be next option.

In traditional XXXXXXX families elders acted as counsellors and this could be great alternative for your dysfunctional marriage.

You also need to explain her that it is important to have attendant to see a doctor and on that pretext you can bring her to office a mental health professional.

I hope this helps you further.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

Brief Answer:
Online prescription is not a possibility

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for reverting back to me.

Unfortunately there is no alternative option to get prescription for antidepressant other than seeing a doctor. I understand that it is difficult to see a psychiatrist but my prescription can not be valid. In addition no one including me, is supposed to issue a prescription without seeing a patient in person.

I request you to look for other doctors in your area who is available in short span of time.


I hope this helps you.
Thanks again.

My son has bipolar but is also being treated recently for OCD in which the meds are not working. He also suffer with high thyroid problems. I have not had his levels checked recently. He has all the symptoms of high thyroid problems. I was reading that it can also cause intrusive thoughts. Could this be the reason he is not responding to the OCD medicine?

Before my husband and I married he admitted that he had OCD. When he was young he had compulsions to complete acts or something bad would happen . Even now, when taking sips of water sometimes something doesn t feel right and he will have to repeat the act until it feels okay . He admitted to having unwanted sexual thoughts earlier in life. A few years before we met he was viewing porn regularly and started using prostitutes. He admitted to having cheated on me in order to have sex. We went to counseling and he is committed to the relationship, and states he has never turned back to old behavior. He made an agreement in front of the counselor that if he watches porn or has sex with a prostitue (or other) he must tell me within two hours. However, when we are in public he has a constant looking problem . It has disturbed me to the point that complete healing (from the cheating and other behaviors) can t take place. I am beside myself. I have told him I think it is related to the OCD, but he claims he is not even aware of it. Other times he says if he is diligent of being aware of looking in every moment he can control it, but any distraction will make him forget and go right back to it. It is sad to him because he feels that no matter how well he does there will always be something I am not happy with, and he really has worked hard to deal with his compulsions. The problem for me is that I have started to dread going places with him. We both like to go to the gym, and to travel, and I am losing my joy in doing so because of the constant, repeated glances at other women. I explained it might be normal to look at beautiful people, but many, continual glances are not normal (and not respectful to me). We are married now and many aspects of the marriage are quite wonderful, connecting, intimate and joyful. We both want this relationship to work. Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated.

mSo I have really bad OCD. It s mainly that I can not get used to change. I know I have a problem, but I really do not want to go to therapy. My mom has an issue with OCD as well, and this issue is that she MUST move furniture to a different place at least 2-3 times a month. Each time, it gets on my nerves so bad that I begin mumbling curse words and I hit pillows and feel infuriated, and I cringe and if I ever have an instance to where I have to walk through the specific area where the furniture was moved, I can not look at it. Typing this right now is making me want to break every piece of furniture moved. The one that got me most was the Key holder, which was moved to the opposite wall, and I just want to punch it off and break it. Nobody understands how much I am trying to hold in curse words and moving things. My solution is not talking to anyone and staying in my room for days until the next rearrangement. It takes me a good week or if I am lucky a couple of days to give it a chance, or to even look at it. The reason why I don t want therapy is because when this happens, I don t cry, I don t usually move things (although I have), I mainly throw a fit, and my mother, having OCD as well doesn t understand my problem and just calls me mental. She says I am mental and sometimes that I am psycho. She doesn t comfort me, or even suggests therapy in a right way. I have other forms of OCD as well, but this is my main problem. What do I do?

I had a hysterectomy almost 15 years ago. Shorthly after I began having extreme panic attacks leading to OCD I never had anxiety or ocd before, my life was normal. I have done hormone therapy, mental health therapy, exposure therapy etc. I have come a long, long way. However, I have never been the same and cannot seem to shake the ocd. Is there anything I can do that I have not tried...will I ever be me again?
