    I find most of my fears and anxiety are irrational and are holding me back from living a fuller life. I just got on meds and will start with a psychologist soon. I have started researching CBT and Mindfulness.

    You developed ocd in all this. Most do. I wish i had the answers how to make it all stop and go away but i dont. The GAD and ocd part is a part of you and how you your thoughts work. You would have to find a way to retrain your brain, literally think differently, different attitude. A lot of changing and growing would need to take place. They have spiritual motivational speakers you can google. (Not religion its different then religon) it is a different way to think and understand the world you live in. Life from a different perspective.
