Suggesting you were by bipolar was just that: a suggestion. Its good that you're not.

>(Ex: giving the car fluid example for why you have ocd, inferring I'm running low on seritonin and it's that simple.)

Its not that simple, but low serotonin accounts for a majority of the problem. High dopamine and high levels of glutamate also play a big part.

>as for erp, I already do that on my own time but it is not enough, as when exsposing myself to the stimulus and resisting my compulsions

Resisting your compulsions is not really a part of ERP.

How do you do your ERP-how do you expose yourself to the stimulus?

>not doing my rituals I then feel like a piece of crap, I don't have any desire to do anything

What sort of rituals do you have?

OCD kind of works that way-it'll make you feel depressed when you don't do your rituals, but this feeling usually passes.

>Only residual symptom psychologically I have that I didn't have before is an inanity to pay attention to a certain task, in that I space out or get distracted, and not from my ocd, but from other things

Funny you should mention this, because dextroamphetamine has shown efficacy in the treatment of OCD-d-amphetamine might help your OCD and attention problems.

>what they do mentally is make me brush off the thoughts and then I feel like crap similar to erp

You basically feel guilty for not having the thoughts which makes you depressed?

>Really what I would like is to find away to remove some of the extreme inability to have confidence in anything

Does this lack of confidence come from your anxiety?
