I have OCD and am sure CAMHS will do well at helping you. As for medication, I have been on both an SSRI and an Anti-psychotic medication called respiridone, both have been very helpful and CBT is usually very good for those with OCD, though unfortunately it did not suit me at that time.

I don't think I have OCD. Although my sister is obsessed with even numbers. She has set the options on the T.V and most things in the house so when you turn up the volume it goes up in two's and if it is on a odd number it will go to a even number.

Personally I like prime numbers, and numbers that are in the fibonachi sequence. So I like the number
3- it is the lowest in the fibonacci sequence that is a prime number.

I am also obsessed with even numbers like your sister, Robyn. I always have the volume for the TV or radio on an even number and, when I lived in an odd numbered room at work, I always felt really uncomfortable until my boyfriend left and I moved into his room which is an even number. My uncle has the same obsession but with odd numbers-he won't even consider looking at moving into a house which is even numbered.

When we played monoply the other day me and a few friends, I was on a team with my friend megan. Mainly because I did not want to role on the even numbers, I don't like even numbers and i was on a team for other reasons. So I only rolled on the prime number roles like the 2.3.7.13.17.19.23 roles of the dice. And we won :)
