    Hi I am 51 years old with O.C.D. My problem is lately that I have been obsessed about whether I go to the bathroom  and if I can not, then I start taking stools softner, prunes or lax. I do not know what is going on with me, besides I feel like I am going crazy. It's like if I do not go to the bathroom,  something is wrong with me. My systems changed with my stools. I am so sorry to bother...
  • i just dont know where these pop in images come from.  i dont understand.  i feel like there is something wrong with me.  they pop in at random times, and they usually involve a terrible fear of mine.  and sometimes i just dont know if its true or not.  if you have ocd about your daily tasks, its rough because you have to face those tasks to get through the day, like taking a shower, making...

    Worried sick

    My OCD has been horrible for the past week. Germs and contamination is overpowering. After Dr. appt. today I decide to stop by the store. End up making friendly small talk with a lady there. She wanted to give me her card for the home business she had so we ended up sitting and chatting for a half hour. So at that time after much personal talk she confides in me that she's HIV positive. Well,...

  • New to this site and see only 2 month old posts...guess ocd does really take up too much of our time!  So sad...I was so angry in learning thats what I had, that it had come out so severely with some negative life events...had to accept it first and then daily try for selfcompassion and love and kindness to myself...try to eat, do daily chores, try to talk to ppl, to keep looking for help or...

    Effecting My Relationships

    My "hangups" as I call them have really started to affect my relationships. I can hardly stand to be around my mother anymore. I just get so caught up on these little behaviors that people do and I just freak out. These "small" things that don't bother anyone else are really big issues for me. My family and friends laugh at me for it and I'm always just so embarrassed. 
  • My husband is a compulsive liar. He will tell a lie when the truth is actually a better option. He steals our family money to stall bill collectors when telling the truth would permit us to review options and make joint decisions. This has caused him to steal from my personal savings, our son's savings and even writing checks against my IRA and depleating it completely without my knowledge. I...

I'm 36 years old and am terrified of pregnancy, giving birth, and having a kid, and my husband and I consider ourselves to be a...
