coping with pure O OCD

I have struggled with pure O health anxiety for more than 10 years.

For the past few years it's been on the back burner and something that doesn't effect my entire day just part of it. When I was a teen it consumed my life.

There are many contributing factors to it but recently it has got bad again. It is no way as bad as it was but I can feel myself slowly going back to a bad place.

Does anyone else struggle with the condition? I'd love to hear how you've coped. I was so proud of myself for getting over it the first time but now all rational thoughts have gone.

The first time around I tried the antidepressants (fluoxetine) and actually it made my life worse.

Very sad to read this. I hope you get some therapy that works
