>> Hi Sarah, I read your follow up post. It's nice to find someone who understands what I go through. I don't talk too much to people about my problems because they don't seem to understand. I don't understand ocd myself so it is really hard to try to explain it to others. I'm really struggling alot lately with guilt. I haven't gone to church at all for a couple of weeks, and I don't attend regularly anymore. I want to, but like I said, I seem to start obsessing over my salvation really bad when I go to church and read my Bible. I believe the fundamentals of the Baptist faith, but I don't agree with legalism either. I spend alot of time sleeping lately and staying at home. I tend to seclude myself at home alot when my ocd gets bad. I suffer from severe migraine headaches too, so I don't feel like doing much most of the time. I'm on paxil 30 mg a day for the ocd. It has helped, but it doesn't seem to be as effective lately. When my husband's insurance kicks in at his new job, I plan on seeing a Christian counselor and my doctor to talk about my meds. Well, enough about me for now. I hope you post a message again soon. I will try to e-mail you if I come across anything good on the web too.
