Just a check in

Almost 100 days in. Gotta family doctor. Had bloodwork done. Everything pristine aside from mildly low potassium (I don't have the best eating habits) ct scan clear. Ecg good. Met with a psychiatrist. Diagnosed with severe OCD and GAD. Going to manage this with cbt therapy once a week and low dose valium as needed for major panic attacks.

I feel like I've got a hold of this. Up until now I've done all this on my own. Stopped drinking, smoking and caffeine all on the same day. No group, no meetings, no therapy. But i can't do it alone anymore. I'm tired. I'm sober. Now it's time to get a hold of my mental illness. This forum has been an amazing outlet for me. I'm not super social in person so having this as a means to reach out it perfect.

Keep fighting the good fight everyone.
