Just wondering what treatment for OCPD entails? Are there any good self-help books? I was denied therapy with a local OCPD specialist, Anthony Pinto, because the lady on the phone felt I did not have it, but then again she missed the point of what I was saying. I sent an angry email to them because I feel they screwed me over.

The fact that you engage in self-harm and have attempted suicide before would suggest something other than OCPD, but most likely still a personality disorder with obsessive compulsive behaviors. I'm guessing your diagnosis would look something like Borderline Personality Disorder with OCD. Perhaps you could just focus on finding a therapist who will work with you to get to the bottom of whatever your problems are and help you learn some healthy coping mechanisms. I think that zoning in on a diagnosis like OCPD might actually be keeping you from getting the help you need.

Sorry that the attempt at getting help fell through.

Yours was the first post in which Pinto's name had surfaced. Seems to have a good understanding of how things work.

I particularly liked this one part of a research paper where he was the major author:
"OCD and OCPD are both impairing disorders marked by compulsive behaviors, but they can be differentiated by the presence of obsessions in OCD and by excessive capacity to delay reward in OCPD."

Hi unixstuff and Ryukil,

Actually, there was a thread on Pinto in October 2013:

internet-talk-radio-show-10-24-3-00pm-on-ocpd-and-ocd-t4337.html

It's about a half hour radio show Pinto did on OCPD, including a transcript of it I made, and some discussion. In the show he spend about 13 minutes interviewing a man with OCPD he called "John".

Sincerely, Paul

Well, I was trying to get an appointment to see Pinto, but the doctor who does the phone screenings said it sounds like my main problem is GAD and not OCD or OCPD. I then talked to Pinto a bit through email, but he said I couldn't go to them for treatment because of the other doctor's assessment. So after a few days I sent them an angry email, frustrated that I'd been denied treatment due to the doctor on the phone misunderstanding me. I guess I burned that bridge, but they already had withdrawn the bridge so it didn't seem to matter...

At this point, your best course of action might be to see a good psychiatrist and allow them to diagnose you and refer you for therapy. That is what my husband did and 20 years later he is doing fairly well along with my push back.

He started out with a 90 on the Cammer scale. Have you taken the Cammer test? It would give you a good indictation of what you are dealing with.

I was diagnosed with ocpd last year but more thought it was an a slang to differ ocd and ocpd...in the last few days ive realized how bad i suffer ...analyzed things in my life and realize how much more im mentally losing control and no one seems to understand...i am ocpd by the book. But today the thing that scares me most is that im a mom...ive been in forums of children and young adults who had a parent with ocpd...mine definitely was triggered and ingaged during my childhood...and all the things these children spoke of i see in my daughter...i need help...this can turn into a cycle...everyone has always seen my structure, control, maturity and much more as good things . Im above average in many areas for my age...but what they dont realize is if i dont i lose contol and fail...Its gotten so much worse now ...as i age im realizing that there are things i cant control...i cant control someone to love me, marry me, build a future with me but through life i always stayed one step ahead in the path i felt should bring me there...im realizing my relationships fell apart because of this...i hide things from my parents because i dont want them to think lower of me...my moms my best friend and if ya think about that...does she know me? I feel so alone...if i try to talk about it they just say your to hard on yourself...
I presume treatment would be on the grounds of changing your thought process?? I need help now...for my kids...my best friend is close to my oldest and they are close....she said that my daughter has a fear of disappointing me....they made her bday cards by scratch and she had a melt down because she thought id think they wernt good enough...she thought id be mad that she didnt have 15 friends...she is 10...she shouldnt need to worry...but my behavior has shown otherwise...
Please help

I have been diagnosed with OCPD this year by a therapist my friends and family can not see how I am but I am I can see it and feel it..

iam really hard on myself I saw a therapist, I take anxiety tablets to get rid of that feeling and I am taking anit- depressant to help

I think you have to learn to accept it and to learn it is ok to want to be in control and to know what trigger it off
