What is the best way to tell someone that I have OCD?
I'm a fairly private person, and have not told anyone that I have OCD. I would like to at least tell one of my friends, and eventually my family, but I just don't know the best way to reveal this. My obsessions and compulsions embarrass me to no end, and I really don't know how my friend would react to my openly discussing my insanity. I know that if she reacts poorly and is not supportive, she is not a good friend in the first place, but I'd rather not lose any of the few close friendships I've managed to maintain. I really would like to be able to talk about this with people and get treatment, but this involves admitting my problem openly. Can anyone help me? Thanks a lot.
