obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)?At the age of 27 I was diagnosed with a dysfunction of the frontal lobes of my brain, a chemical maladjustment, what psychiatrists call "frontalization", which caused the OCD, they gave me risperidone and in a few months I was very well. seem completely cured because I had no problems, for many years I had a normal life, until I suffered a huge material loss and a few months later a traumatic love breakup, all at the same time, that affected me so much that the OCD began to return little by little Up to now 5 years later the problem returned stronger, but I would not want to take risperidone again because it causes me very unpleasant side effects
that's why I want to deal with homeopathy. It is difficult for me to describe my condition but I will try to say as much detail as possible.
Only as is known, I have invasive thoughts that I cannot control, and they limit me in my physical and intellectual activities, and are thoughts about a combination of numbers and religion,
I am always counting all, the steps that I take, I cannot enter or leave some place if I step on an odd number.
I avoid stepping on the concrete floor trenches like in the movie: As Good As It Gets
I also count at certain number of times when I touch something, like the refrigerator before opening it, the switch, I have aversion to certain numbers, I think that if I do something in that number I will receive a punishment from heaven or strong bad luck.
It is quite a complex problem but I have explained the best I can.
Because I am a writer and this limits my work, I cannot complete a novel that I started four years ago.
Please if you have something that can help me but that does not take away my sexual desire, creativity or imagination witch are obviously essentials to my writer work.
I am a 48 year old Hispanic man from warm california USA

I continue with the obsession of counting almost all my actions, such as touching the switch a certain number of times before use it, I count the steps I take while walking so as not to fall in a certain number of steps because otherwise I have a huge fear of receiving a brutal punishment, Until now it has gotten worse, covering more aspects of my life such as eating, I have to eat a certain number of pieces of food (4) as if I eat chicken I have to eat exactly 4 pieces, etc. If not, I have a huge fear of receiving a punishment, even when writing I have to write down a certain number of lines for fear of receiving a punishment or bad luck,
but my mind does not improve, in fact it has worsened, I have felt very depressed too, for my problem
I have not been able to write a letter of my novel. I have so many imaginary fears, and i know that are not real but i cannot avoid them.
I have also developed an enormous fear of bathing, because I can't find the "right day", I think many things like that I shouldn't bathe on an odd numbered day, and many more ideas and fears that appears precisely days before taking a bath. I couldn't take a shower for 2 months! I was afraid of receiving a punishment or a curse if doing it on the day I considered wrong,
although I finally took a shower, but is still so hard for me to take shower often. I know it's very bad but I don't know how to resolve it.
any other medication that you can suggest to me? I would greatly appreciate it

In most cases the person has some incident happen that is traumatic to them. Their mind cannot accept what happened.
So the subconscious mind starts to layer in all these behaviors, like counting steps, (all the stuff you mentioned)
This is to prevent the memories of the original event from appearing.
I Know of one girl who was housebound with huge list of behaviors-her incident was kids pouring food on her head at a party. Therapist found the food(jello) and desensitized her by repeating the food pouring, until finally the patient was neutral and cured.
Once the trauma happens it starts an actual brain loop of cortisone and stress chemicals that takes over. Another strategy is when this begins you are to distract yourself asap. Turn on music, dance, turn on tv, play a video game,exercise, call up someone etc bc this Breaks up the brain chemical response. Realize when u begin this? The threats of you better start counting or whatever will increase. Don’t be afraid and know you can beat this.
