Hi Everyone, If anybody believes they might be suffering from OCD and that they're MDD is exacerbated by it, to let you know there are free support groups through the UK - just search via your postcode.
I never used to believe that I struggled with OCD because I didn't do some of the stereotypical behaviours that I associated with OCD (counting, repeatedly washing hands etc). But I've realised that this was a misconception of OCD on my part and there are a lot of parts of OCD I am greatly affected by and that it has paid a great deal in shaping my MDD.
I have found some free support groups in the UK so this could be a possible resource for anybody else struggling with OCD in conjunction with their MDD. I'm how applicable these groups would be as I've only just discovered them and haven't attended one yet but hopefully they can provide some help in controlling compulsions and that can be applied to controlling MDD.
