Hi there everyone!
I'm new to this forum, I've lurked a few days though, and I hope to learn more about myself and help others If I can.  :yes: I'm from the UK, I love squirrels and cake, and work in photography.

I've had intense spikes of OCD rituals, panic thoughts and anxiety attacks throughout my life, ranging from months to years for each bout, since around 11 years of age. Symptoms have ranged from twitching to bed wetting, stomach cramps, pins and needles, palpitations and others. Worries have ranged from transport disasters, diseases to even nuclear war. My OCD tackled and controlled the anxiety until I managed to tackle and almost eliminate the OCD, and at the same time, the anxieties seemed to almost disappear to a large degree. I thought I was in control, but very recent events have caused a massive (as it feels to me) incident which makes me feel like I'm right back in the war-zone again, aged 19 (when my anxiety and OCD were at their height). Problem is, I don't know whether I am genuinely physically ill, or whether this is the anxiety flare up again. Currently very stressed and worried.  :fragend005:

I shall make a separate post on this. Nice to meet you all.
