Haha yea that's what I've thought, this is the same doctor who said the car thing, I don't think she even knows what ocd is, I am just trying to be respectful, not sure if I would take it if she offered, but then again don't have much to lose haha. And yea I already do perceive them in sarcastic way at times, it's just with these it at times seems I actually like it which scares me ect ect. I don't know maybe in stubborn, but I get what you are saying. I had ocd onset very suddenly, before I had it I used to have intrusive thoughts all the time. Usually when I was anxious they would get worse but i would just chuckle. For example if be on a date and imagine if I just shouted something embaressing, it would just make me chuckle inside and is forget about it. When the ocd onset I was paralyzed with anxiety, and it almost seemed to stick with me in a ptsd like way, so that now after months of obsessivng my mind has changed and I guess "I don't joke around" with my thoughts. I know they are not real, but maybe it seems at some level I lack insight? Or maybe I'm just stubborn, not sure but that's the best way I could describe it. Also eric what are your thoughts on amantadine, as it has shown effect in ocd but and in a rat model was superior to memantine, being more active in the striatum, but it is also positively affects dopamine transmission(not exactly sure how, I think it encourages more to be released and may be an agonist not sure). I think memantine is also a d2agonist but that it's affinity is negligible.
