    I do not have OCD, but a friend of mine does.  I've known him for 4 yrs. and we have often expressed an attraction for each other.  He avoids contact because he hates to be touched or kissed.  Confused to say the least :(.  Can someone be attracted to someone else but not want to be physical with them?  He spits after kissing (this is crushing).  And he goes home to shower, throw out...

    Do I have OCD?

    5
    Hi I'm 30 years old and I've had a tramatic experience lately that has caused me to doubt myself and feel extremely guilty. It all started about a week ago and I was sleeping in my bed with my 1 year old daughter. When she woke up, she started to play with me like put her finger in my mouth and crawl around on the bed. I remember random inappropriate thoughts popping into my head, but I quickly...

    Not letting OCD win!

    I have dealt with OCD probably my whole life, but was not officially diagnosed until I was in my early 20s.  I have ups and downs with it and this past week has been difficult.  My OCD obsessions have come and gone and changed over the years.  Currently my biggest is worrying to the extreme about others-like the entire world!  If I hear coughing, I worry someone is choking.  If I see somone...

    I hate how people think OCD is only for cleaning, it's a lot more complicated.

    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...

    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.
