Re: New to having OCD...

Amy, please know this. You will feel better. You won't have control issues. You'll be able to do the things you like doing without all the horrific OCD thoughts and actions getting in the way. I love things in their right places. Things have to be arranged just right. I have intrusive thoughts that keep me up day and night. Seeing a good therapist, taking meds and having the hope that things will improve will get you very far. I promise. Know that others are in the same boat and that we can all conquer this with the right attitude. There are some excellent books on OCD and how to cope. Please get a couple and take your time reading them. They will help you relax. Good Luck and keep us posted.
