I was on sertraline for 8 years for anxiety and ocd (not really severe) then they just
Pooped out. I tried Prozac but that made me 100 times worse. I finally found escitalopram which was fantastic for 6 months and then stopped working, I am no doing cbt and exposure therapy and have just started fluvoxamine day 1, the exposure therapy is so hard, over the past few years I have dropped a lot of compulsions and handled a lot of thoughts to the point they rarely exist but I'm struggling with these ones I'm working on, I am reading a worry script done by me and my therapist of the worst case scenario of me harming my son which is horrendous! I can't stop crying every time I read it, it's like a horror film to me, I can't bear it. I need to read it for an hour a day until my anxiety goes down but I can't even go near it! I don't avoid being around my son at all he is my life and I love him so much I just hate having to read this I feel so guilty and like a bad mother! Will this ever get better?
