i might as well post an update. the schizoaffective has been under control because of the psych meds for quite awhile now, with only the rare flare-up that happened about a year ago. the OCD still pops up it's ugly head fairly often however. is there any med that will control OCD? i've been hoping for one for years.

my wife and i have been doing great for quite awhile, and we are very happy at our new place in the countryside just outside marion, virginia. we are getting along better than we have in a very long time.

Hello philbee, good to see you!

OCD is often a way of making anxiety feel safe so I would say an anxiety medication might help or therapy to learn to cope with the anxiety.

I am new to the site and I am not sure if this is the right forum/thread. I have recently started marriage counseling with my husband. Our therapist is male. I believe I am having erotic transferrence issues and I believe it's best to terminate the therapy relationship and look for another. I am considering terminating via email. I have read that the proper thing to do is let my therapist know. However, I do not trust myself to do so in person. Also, on the phone I feel I may bumble out my thoughts about him. Any advice on how to terminate?

Hello Alexis, welcome to Psych Central. You can send an email or write a letter. Maybe you could let the office manager know instead if there is one. I think in this instance that you are right to terminate as it is couples counseling and you don't need that sort of transference as an added issue. Good luck!

HELP. Need Info...

At this exact time I do not have T or pdoc. Am moving completely out of the area in 2 weeks (big part of current condition). Stupid to start with one here.

Have talked to crisis hotline. Agreed that if I am still in danger I should go to hospital.

I am giving it a great deal of thought since I am not better. And yes I have all 3 components in place.

Question: What actually happens in the hospital? ?

I have this image that they will give meds to make me sleep for 3 days or make me a zombie.

Geeezzz I am afraid to go and afraid not to

Can I get some ideas of what should happen. PLEASE and thank you in advance.

Hello Shadowdove, sorry nearly missed your post! No, they will not just drug you up and turn you into a zombie. They will do a proper evaluation, possibly adjust your medication and offer some counseling. If you volunteer to go in, usually you are free to leave when you wish. If you feel you need to go in and feel unsafe, please go in.
