Bitter experience has taught me that the poor sufferer of DA induced OCD ( I am sticking wih this one, Turnip!) will lie through thier back teeth to any health care official who may take them off thier DA simply because they are adicted to the kick they get from the behaviour. It is no different to trying to get the bottle out of the hsnd of the alcoholic.
The key to identifying those with OCD is by asking partners about behavioural changes.
Weaning the victim off is not as diffficult as identifying them in the first place.
If anyone reading these posts thinks they have a loved one who is taking DA's and acting "a bit strangely" please please speak to a professional ASAP. You have to be cruel to be kind and one day they really will thank you for it...
