i\'m wondering what alternatives are there to medications to help with OCD symptoms? i\'ve been in therapy for 10 years and was initially diagnosed with BPD (borderline), but then after my one therapist retired and i got a new one, she switched the diagnosis to OCD and said that the behaviours resembling BPD are simply caused by the OCD. so needless to say, they\'ve tried me on practically every medication available over the years and finally gave up because they were so bad. the issue is that i have severe food allergies and digestive problems which mean that i\'m either allergic to components in the medications or don\'t tolerate them well... yet she insists on focusing soley on the OCD - doing CBT exercises (and ignoring my other problems) and keeps putting me on medication after medication saying we just haven\'t found the right one yet even though i\'ve been on many before with dire results. meanwhile, i\'ve been very physically sick as she keeps experimenting - even when i\'ve been on as little as 1/8th of the lowest dose!!! i don\'t know what to do as she basically ignores my concerns about it. i\'d really like to be able to say to her \"can we try \"this\" instead?\". any ideas?
