Has anybody else ever.....
Hi, I'm 16 years old and this is how it started : I started noticing this disorder last year some time since I was 15, though I don't know what triggered it. I have intrusive thoughts, and I have a hard time deciding between multiple things. My OCD has stopped me from doing things numerous times. I've noticed that over time, it worsens. When I found out that I had OCD, I was like " Oh, cool, atleast I know what it is," but now I see it's definitely not cool. At first I didn't really think much of it but over time, I've come to realize that it's horrible. My boyfriend sometimes jokes with me about it, and I hear people saying " Oh, I'm so OCD, everything has to be in the right order." The thing is, is that they don't know the half of it. I feel like a hypocrite saying this now, that I can't stand when people say things like that because I, too used to say stuff like that. I just felt like stressing that I dislike when people say stuff like that, because in reality, if they really had it, they'd wish they didn't.
I don't wish that I didn't have it, I just wish I had a way to cope; I do not intend on ever taking anti-depressants or any other medication to treat it.[/SIZE]
