How can I feel comfortable with my psychiatrist again?

My psychiatrist lost his temper with me on the phone yesterday and said a lot of hurtful things. I must have deserved them, but I feel terrible.

Quitting OCD - should I take the leap?

My obsessive-compulsive disorder isn't disrupting my day-to-day living, but it's annoying as hell. Good news is that I feel like I'm on the verge of being able to make myself stop giving in to the compulsive urges -- should I give it a try? Has anyone else out there with OCD tried to take the leap and just "quit"? [more inside]
