Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a psychiatric disorder, more specifically, an anxiety disorder.

I don't know why... I just "know".It's hard because I'm already in college... I keep studying a career but sometimes I feel like giving it up because...

    A War in my head

    1
    I am 46 years old and have been diagnosed with OCD and Tourette's Syndrome. My Tourette's onset was at age 7. I did not start treatment for it until I was 20. I am a master at disguising and suppressing tics in public. I supress, but I have to vent them when I am alone, if you were to walk into my house when nobody but me is there and listen for a few minutes, you would think Satan lives there!...

    Hi. I'm Kylie and I'm 13 years old. I struggle with OCD, anxiety and depression, and it takes over my life. I was bullied in elementary school and had some fights with friends at school. Once the summer came around, they all kind of left. I had no one to talk to but my parents, and at first I was scared to do so. I felt lonely and had way too much time to think. I ended up spending a year and a...
  • I'm on Celexa currently for my ocd and it's not working. I was on Luvox in the past but had to stop it because of side effects. Does anyone have any suggestions for an ocd med that works?

    Hello. I am a 30 yo woman who is married to a wonderful man. I've never doubted for a second that he is the man that I want to spend the rest of my life with. When I was younger, as in 7-12, I suffered alot from OCD. Alot of the things I would do would be if I felt like I stepped on something wrong or touched something that didn't feel right I would have to go back and redo it or else I thought...

    Lifetime of OCD

    Hello everyone. I noticed that there are a lot of younger folks on this blog, so I thought I would give a bit of encouragement about living with OCD, which I have my whole life. I am 48, have a family, and a lawyer; and despite suffering from OCD for decades, I have learned a lot of tools to keep it in check. Although I still struggle periodically, I am relatively happy, particularly compared...

    My family

    My family does not understand me. They assume that when I don't want to be touched that means I'm being ridiculous and rude. I don't like being hugged but when my sisters say" hug me," and I don't they say " that's how I know u don't love me," and I can't bear for them to say that so I hug them, and I know it sounds bad but I feel like vomiting and taking a hot shower. And I absoutly hate when...

    My hair

    I have pretty thick, curly hair which I like even only once I've made it go the way I want but I struggle every morning with my hair to the point waking up is an issue because I don't want to accept the reality of how messy and big my hair gets. It makes me cry and want to shave my head when I look in the mirror. I used to have an actual addiction to cutting my hair. It's more than just hair I...

  • waking up?I think I'm headed for a nervous breakdown. I keep getting bombarded with these horrible thoughts in my sleep, each seems worse than the last. I feel as though they are very real and on the off chance that it actually is OCD, I doubt I can continue like this day in and day out. It's exposure for me to even type part of these so bear with me, but what I "see" or "think" in my dreams have...
