    Hi...

    I'm struggling so bad with my OCD these days, it's unreal. Is anyone else really good at hiding their symptoms from everyone else? I swear my girlfriend has no idea half of what goes on in my head. But it's all in there... all the time... my mind never stops, never even slows down. I think I'm crazy sometimes. Anyway I'm new here and could use some friends going through the same thing.

    Hi, new to the group! I have just realized I may have had OCD for most of my life. I get treated for anxiety and depression but never have realized, or even talked about, these other symptoms. I've had recurring and changing obsessions all my life. For years I was obsessed with thinking I was getting Schizophrenia, to the point of thinking I was hearing voices (I really wasn't). I thought about...

    I cried

    I did it. I hit 130 pounds. And then I cried. I cried because I hadn't weighed that much in 6 months. I cried because I felt so guilty for gaining weight. I cried because I felt ugly. I cried because I HATE who I am. I cried because they told me I would be happier if I gained weight and I'm not. I cried because I thought I had it under control but the thoughts came rushing back. I cried because I...

    I am 16 years old. I have not been diagnosed with OCD but I suspect I have it. I have to check light switches, water faucets, my alarm clock, and outlets. When I check them I sometimes count to a certain number. It's very frustrating and distressing knowing that everything is fine but not being able to stop it sometimes. My parents don't know. I don't want to tell them because I figure they will...

    air typing/finger spelling

    For the last 25 years, I've been typing out words with my fingers no matter where I am or what I'm doing, unless I am very busy doing something else. When I hear word or phrase, it seems to stick in my head and I will type it over and over with my fingers no matter where my hands are. On my lap, wrapped around my purse handle, holding my husband's hand. It sometimes keeps me awake at night...

I was in my...

    hello, I'm Hannah. I have really bad OCD and a fear of death. I'm scared if I don't do a OCD ritual or process that something bad will happen. Have any of you overcome these thoughts and lived through it and been healthy? I'm just having a really hard time convincing myself that I don't have to do an OCD process.
