I will try to keep this blog short and to the point. Basically, I have been struggling with my OCD for approximately the last 3 and a half years. It has been a roller coaster of ups and downs, with more downs recently than ups. I was diagnosed with OCD at the age of 13 (going on 14), and I have taken medications for it ever since (although I did go off twice in my life, but I'd rather not talk about that right now). In some cases they have worked very well and in other cases they have not helped me at all and sometimes even made me worse. I feel it is totally unfair that I should have to deal with this disorder everyday. It is a constant struggle that isholding me back and preventing me from moving on with my life. And it's not just affectingme in a negative way, but alsothe people who are closest to me.I often ask myself the question "What did I do wrong to deserve this?" I wish I knew the answer, but I don't. Well anyway, I am on meds now and have been for a very long time, and I don't think that any of them are working. Maybe some of the other people on this blog are going through the same thing, and if anyone is then I do have empathy for them. OCD has almost completely taken over my life, and I dont know what's gonna come next. If there's anyone else out there who is feeling the same way, then I am deeply sorry that you are going through such a difficult time. I feel that Ican relate. Perhaps we can help eachother out by telling our stories and inspiring one another so that everyone can feel happier and less afraid.
