I have OCD too, but it's mild. I don't think something bad will happen if I don't do certain things. I don't have any rituals. Mine is just strictly numbers, counting, everything has to be done evenly. Balance, would be the perfect word to describe my habits.
It's extremely distracting. Doc started me on Vyvanse. That helped tremendously. But in some cases it can make OCD worse. So she took me off of it in hopes the OCD would decrease. It hasn't. It makes everything almost impossible to do.
I count steps, seconds between poles when driving, number of cars passing us, ceiling tiles, syllables in words or sentences.
Is there any particular medication that strictly treats this behavior?
