Living Life

Life is never what you think, behind closed doors, doing things many hours a day, the feeling that you could lose control again at any minute. The way my life goes one minute all is great and the next all is scary, horrible and time consuming. This is the life of OCD the way it makes you feel, the anxiety it causes and the way we are. I was Diagnosed with OCD at age 12, … The Story Continues...

The OCD Mind- My Personal Hell

Hi all. I’m 28 years old, happily married with 2 beautiful boys. My obsessions are many, but my most recurring, and most terrifying, is the one about my husband dying in a car accident. He has a very long commute, an hour there and anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours + back, depending on the traffic. Pure agony. He’s driving back from work as I type this, and I’m checking the … The Story Continues...

OCD Wife’s Story

I have read some of your very harrowing stories about identifying OCD, treating and coping strategies. My Story is not of me, but my husband, I’ll try to explain myself best I can. When I met him 3 years ago, he told me he use to get very dry skin on his hands and that was caused by keeping them in water all the time, he told me at the time, this was from his … The Story Continues...

On Being Diagnosed

I wrote this piece a fair number of years ago. It’s just a sketch of what i went through on my first visit to a shrink to try to get help for “my problem”. This was about a year after I got sober. Life was not going well at the time. She sat there reading a year old Time magazine. She was too thin and had dark circles under her eyes. There was something stretched … The Story Continues...

‘The OCD Project’

I am not a fan of reality type shows in general. But this looks interesting. Hopefully it’s not exploitative. ‘The OCD Project’: Obsessive-compulsive disorder gets the spotlight in new series (SUPERTRAILER) Exposure and Response Prevention is widely recognized as a best practice for the treatment of OCD. In this program, a group of OCD patients will live under one roof throughout the course of therapy to address the illness and provide round-the-clock support for each … The Story Continues...

OCDgirl’s Story

Wow, it is amazing to read everyones different experiences. It gives me a sense that I am not alone. My story is a long one, but I will try to condense it. When I was sixteen years old I was raped by an older man at a party, while heavily intoxicated. What makes it worse is, I was a virgin. Anyway, I didn’t really realise that it was rape until a year later. I was … The Story Continues...

Lucy’s Story

Recently I was diagnosed with OCD after a solid year of battling extremely distracting and aggressive, violent, gory thoughts about the death of myself and my loved ones, in some cases I would think about myself hurting them. I loved to think about falling down the stairs, jumping off a bridge, falling or impaling objects, and my personal favorite, car accidents. Eventually I could no longer drive because I became fearful that all these thoughts … The Story Continues...

Henry’s Story

I am a lifer. 45 years of the disease. A ruined life (or should I say a severely compromised life). How good it could have been, if only. . . I function in society, run a business, but feel pain and anguish most of the time. I won’t even try to go through the evolution of my OCD, as I have had probably every conceivable configuration and iteration of the disease, since age 13. Medicine … The Story Continues...
