I was very hesitant about posting this, it is a pretty sensitive subject for me.. but I wanted some "tech people" conversation about it.. there was also the risk of people thinking I'm crazy.. but.. everyone on Neowin knows I'm crazy anyway
I have always been pretty OCD as long as I can remember.. Probably started getting worse when I started my teens.. I have the majority of it under control now.. but one aspect of it, haunts me and is driving me crazy.. ######ing Noises
I have always been in a work environment where I could put headphones on or shut my door.. but we have moved buildings and I no longer have those luxuries..
Things that drive me up the up and drag me through hell are,
Loud Keyboard Typing
Talking Loudly on the phone
Mouse Clicking some days
Listening to Stupid People Talk
along with other horrid sounds
I know there are health websites that talk about these sort of things, but I wanted to come here and see..
One medicine that helped a whole ######ing lot was Cymbalta.. It really helped calmed down and just not care about these things.. but at the same time.. I didn't really care about anything while on it
Things I did not like about it
Known to cause Liver Damage - Almost guaranteed
Drinking is a HUGE no no - I know this goes with most of these type drugs.. but some you can have 2-3 drinks and still be ok.. I had two beers and.. well it was bad lol
Afraid to become dependent on it - A lot of people that take these drugs become dependent and almost impossible for them to come off of them
Afraid of damaging my brain - No studies have said anything about this.. but still.
Sex.. While on it.. Very hard for me to "climax".. I could go for hours lol
Anyone else everyone take any drugs to help them? Anyone have any non-drug methods of helping? As I am typing this, someone is crunching ice and I just want to ######ing scream
Thanks for taking the time to read it
