Welcome to the forum . . . it's great that you have come by and posted . . .
First, you can write as much as you want here . . . this is your space to write and to read and anyone who comes here feels comfortable in doing that . . .so never fear about the length . . .
Your symptoms, and I am not a med professional, are not uncommon . . . when you were at ER, why did they give you meds? Do you know what the meds were? Might you have had a reaction to the meds? Sometimes for folks with anxiety (myself included), an unrelated trigger can start an anxiety episode . . .you say that you have been diagnosed with GAD and are now exhibiting symptoms of OCD according to the ER doc. . . have you been diagnosed with OCD by a specialist? . . . the reason why I ask is that anxiety encourages us to acquire symptoms that we may not actually have . . . it's a nasty little game that anxiety hits us with . . . for example, your Mom inadvertently planted the suggestion that people losing touch with reality hear voices and now you are convinced that you are going to hear voices . . .
Here's my best suggestion . . . if at all possible, get a referral to a counselor, not necessarily a psychiatrist . . . you want to deal with the root causes and not just the symptoms . . . .you may have to try out a couple of counselors until you find one that aligns with your needs . . .this is okay . . . . if a mental health institution believes that you are suffering from anxiety, then there is a good chance that is what is happening . . . again, sometimes we assume symptoms that we don't really have . . .sometimes it comes from looking up stuff on the Internet, sometimes from what other people say, and sometimes from movies or television . . .you need to reground yourself in reality and that is most effectively and efficiently accomplished with the help of a counselor . . . .
You are different; each of us is different . . . . but you were able to work through major depressive disorder so you have the strength of character to deal with this issue also . . . you need support and help without a doubt from a professional, but you need to have your own commitment that you can engage in the recovery process which you can . . . it will not be easy; there may be bumps in the road; but you will persevere . . . . and, by all means, come back here . . .write as much as you like and if we can do anything to support you, you will find that this community will be here for you . . .take care, kc
