Well, I have gone since September without any problems with depression or OCD. I am still taking medication…and I plan to keep taking it. I believe that God heals me through it. As far as my OCD is concerned, I am considering myself "cured" at the moment. My life is so different than it was 10 years ago, and so much better. 2001 was the absolute lowest point in my life. I was completely controlled by my OCD and was so depressed that I didn't want to live. Somehow God brought me through that, and I have improved steadily since then. Last year was the most difficult since 2001, and I fought depression and OCD together. As a matter of fact, the two aggravated each other. By the end of the school year last year, I was completely obsessed with my friend at work, but over the past several years, she had helped me learn how to control it, at least externally. Last summer, I got so bad that I gave up…..I stopped taking my meds and I thought I would just let it run it's course, which would probably lead to me taking my own life. My wife figured out what I was doing and was livid. She made me start taking my meds again, and I determined that I was going to find a way to get better. My friend at work indirectly helped me to understand what triggers my obsessions, how to identify who I will obsess about, how to control it, and finally, how to end it. It was a painful process, but in the end I am glad I went through it. She is still my friend, and now I don't have to worry about obsessing about it and driving her up the wall. Things are going well right now, and I pray that they stay that way.Gail was also a great help to me…she gave me some really good information and was willing to listen and give me advice. (Thanks Gail! You helped make a difference in my life! 🙂 ) I look forward to reading about all of your success stories this year as well! 🙂 Praying that God adds his blessings to all of you and your families!

Shawn
