I have OCPD and I just lost my job of 8 months. I use to be able to hold a job for at least a couple years. It is getting worse. I am being told by the Psychologist that I should stay off work for a least a year as one of my problems is work, work, work at the expense of family and friends. I am just not sure I can do that. They say that will force me back into soclalizing and balance my family live so that in a year when I go back to work, family and friends will actually be my primary focus instead of work.
What types of counselling do you find helps OCPD? What meds to you take? I am currently stopping my meds and I feel better. Is there any hope that I will ever be able to work again? Is there hope for people with OCPD. I have read everything from don't bother you cannot afford to get better because of the amount of counselling you would need, to this is really treatable. What is correct?
