? for anyone with OCD that started in childhood...?

I am convinced of the link between my childhood abuse/neglect and my OCD. The disorder is rooted in anxiety, and what causes a child more anxiety than being mistreated by their own parents. I know there is much debate in the scientific community about this. Does anyone else agree with this theory?

Re: ? for anyone with OCD that started in childhood...?

Hi BeachMama, I know you posted this awhile ago--but noticed you did not get much of a reply.

I also had a very tense and rough childhood--started with my OCD back then, too.
Still have it. It is quite bad lately. When I was a kid, it was ridiculous.

So, I agree that if it starts early in life with all the anxiety and sadness it is certainly going to follow through to adulthood. I have shut the door and forgiven for past pain, but still am afflicted with the OCD and depression.

I just wanted to post and let you know that someone else out there is experiencing the same problems and you are not alone.

If you need to chat, I am here.

Take Care.

i absoluetly agree i was sexually abused as a child and i specifically remember my

obsessive thoughts coming soon after and just a few few years ago when a very

tramatic event happened in my life the compulsions followed right behind.

I am sorry to hear you have had such a hard time in life, too. How do you handle the OCD part of everything?
