Dear sir, Yours seems to be a complicated situation indeed. But don't worry, there is never a problem without a solution. Your past experience with medicines has been bitter it seems, but for your condition, it is best to go ahead with a combination of medicines and psychotherapy to control your anxiety, depression and OCD. I suggest you please meet a psychiatrist and get your treatment planned in detail and executed.

Your description does not specifically indicate OCD. However it does point towards symptoms of anxiety and depression. You need to first establish the actual problem and underlying causes for it, which will help in determining appropriate treatment. I can assure you that there are effective treatment for anxiety disorders in the form of cognitive behavior therapy, medicine and lifestyle modifications. Please consult a psychiatrist to  start timely treatment and monitoring. Regards
