Hi. My name is Susan, and I am 29 years old. I suffer from OCD and was looking for someplace online that may offer some support or stories of other people with this frustrating disorder. People in my daily life who know about my OCD try to understand me and are typically very patient, but anyone who does not have this cannot possibly understand what it can do to a person. My OCD began very early on in life, but I received my actual diagnosis at the age of 16. I have some minor compulsive behavior, but I am mostly what they call a "Pure O." I worry all of the time…Mostly about things of no just cause. Anything can happen…I can hear something on the radio, see something on t.v., hear certain words people around me say, see certain colors or numbers…And it triggers something in my head that sets off into a long-term spell of some particular worry. Sometimes my worries focus on a particular disease or illness; sometimes I worry that I am getting signs that I am going to die at particular times; sometimes I worry that I am going to do something wrong to someone I love; sometimes I am just overwhelmed with guilt about anything I may have done wrong. The list goes on and on. I know all of this sounds ridiculous, but I was hoping that finding a site like this would enable me to meet people that may share some similarities. I know no case of OCD is exactly the same, but anyone who suffers from this disorder will understand some of what I feel. Please feel free to send me a message or chat at any time I may be online. I look forward to meeting any of you. As much as you may offer comfort or support to me, I hope to do the same for some of you. I have been through a lot with OCD, and there is a lot I may understand about what some of the rest of you are going through. Thanks for reading, and I wish you all well.
