I am a newly-diagnosed OCD suffer from Beijing, China.
I’ve been having 4 times low-sexual risk in the past 15 months. Each of time I have been in the fear of HIV, since I always unable to believe the result after 3 month’s window period. In the fourth behavior, I am afraid of being stabled by the partner’s HIV needle (though without any hurt of being stabbing), but I firmly believed that I was stabbed and the virus may up to 3 years to be detected. (Coz in my thought, the one may secretly produced very advanced virus)
After seeing a doctor and did a batch of research from internet(so many suffers think same way with me), I partially believed that I am a OCD suffer. (another part of me still think I may being stabbed by the HIV needle;( ). And the reality in Beijing is that the professional CBT treatment is too limited or rare to rely on, therefore, I am consider to take the med for the first step of my treatment plan.
Here are 3 questions regarding to this shitty OCD monster:
- Psychiatrist prescribed sertraline, in your expertise or experience, is that the most worthy med to try at beginning? What does you are suggesting?
- About the efficacy of med: Since I sometime am convinced I was stabbed and the window period can up to 3 year, how the med works? Does my brain will gradually accept the window period is 3 months? I am dying to curious about this, because med is the my hope and relief.
- Since Beijing doesn’t have a very reliable organization can offer CBT treatment, do you think it is a good idea to conduct self-treatment for this?
Thanks for your support and help from Beijing
