have also put this on SN board, butthink i shouldnt have done that

i am suffering at the minute with depression gp has diagnosed it as pnd, but i sometimes think otherwise.

something that has been on my mind recently, is how when i was young, i had to do things a certain number of times(touch wood, turn light on/off)7 normally and would also feel the need to 'take' things with me when we went out for day with school etc ie:toilet roll tube etc...dont laugh, im not making this up, just ive started being a bit like this again now..having to do things a certain number of times and re checking everything.

im sorry if this sounds like total tosh, but just wondered if it is symtomatic of anything any of you know about and could it be linked to my depression

Just posted on the other board - it sounds like OCD, which can be linked to depression.

thanks, put it here, cos felt cheeky putting it on SN

no ambrosia, TBH ive never mentioned it to anyone before, but i remeber it being very bad when i was younger, was abused by father as a child, so was very quiet and withdrawn and because it was 'my dad' felt i couldnt trust 'anyone', so kept it to myself, just worrying me as its coming back now

another thing that bothers me is i have to touch all my fingers with my thumb forwards and back again loads of times . not all the time, but sometimes i find myself doing it without realising?
