There have been very few posts here lately.
Does that mean everyone is doing well.
Unfortunately, my OCD/depression has returned and I am having trouble functioning.
It seems that I have nowhere to turn. It is ironic but I have a major simcha in my family plus some
others.

Simchas can be sooo stressful. It helps if you decide to do what YOU want and ignore everything else that you think you SHOULD be doing. Hatzlacha!

Thanks for the quick reply.
Actually, I am not doing very much for all of Simcha's
My wife is really doing everything.
It is just that I feel awful that I can't enjoy it because of my OCD.
Also, I am afraid that my (mental) sickness will ruin the simchas for everyone.

Unfortunately, my OCD will not let up.
I am very worried about my child's upcoming wedding.
My therapist is now on extended medical leave.
I wish there was some sort of hotline or support group.
In my experience the Yitty Leibel never answers.

Just a little better.
Still feel a need to talk to a therapist or a support group.

I have his e-mail address but I don't think he will respond.
He is having surgery during this time.

I sent e-mail but I don't expect a quick reply.
Last time it took him more than two weeks to answer my e-mail.

If anyone has any suggestions e.g. therapist to contact, support group, etc
please let me know.

You are absolutely right KC.
The problem is I am very concerned for my family and have difficulty
posting in public some of my crazy thoughts.
My children are unaware of the issues I face.
Furthermore, my family is highly respected in the community.

I am feeling slightly better today.
Mornings at work are the most difficult times.
At night at home I usually good shape.

Let's start a conversation.
How is everybody doing?
I am doing well, b'h. It took ages for the pressures of Pesach and Ben Hazmanim to lift, but now I finally feel freer. The warm weather, flowers and trees are very uplifting for me, and I try to spend a lot of time outside, ignoring my home-health is first.
How is everybody else?

Thank you for restarting the conversation.
I also was doing well until yesterday. I am in the midst of a major setback and
I am extremely worried about myself.
I now have these compulsions to do different things or c"v I will be severely punished.
Some of these things are very drastic like financial issues.
Having fallen so fast has made me very depressed. One of the few positives is this forum.

Hi
Hope you are doing better.
I don't know how I'm doing.
There are good things and more difficult things.
maybe the just troubling right now is that I keep on getting close to my therapist and then I pull back and hate him.
Not sure what to do with this.

Unfortunately, things have gotten worse.
I keep seeing signs and don't know what to do.
