Depression and OCD-How to Cope?

I don't know 'why' really, but it seems I'm very obsessive over a lot of things. I like being in control of situations and doing them myself and I have a hard time thinking that other people will do things right when I'm not there doing them.

It gets worse when it gets to the point where your partner doesn't know what to tell you to help and/or gets frustrated because you continue to worry.

^^U Any suggestions as to what I could do or don't? It usually goes that I worry, voice my worry to my partner (a lot of times, because she doesn't know what to do to assure me it'll be fine), and my partner gets frustrated, which ends up making me feel depressed and 'unloved'.

I know probably most of these things is somehow my doing, maybe I'm exaggerating and making them bigger in my mind, but still...has anyone experienced this? How do you cope with it? And mostly what can I do? I feel quite alone on it, since I can't go to my parents and my partner...well, I'm ending up just wanting to reserve my worries now because it ends up with her frustrated when I constantly tell her that I worry and it ends up in an argument.

Any advice? (Please, no suggestions of going to a therapist. I really don't have the money to go to one.)

You are not alone with this.You have came to the corecctet place to ask this question.OCD,depresion runs hand and hand with a chemical inballence in the brain.Soon too follow will be anxiety attacks,trust me,it's just a stepping stone for it.

I have a thread on this board about things like this.There is alot of great posters with alot of copping ideas,including me.

So please take the time and read it.You are not alone!!
