I just joined the board and wanted to say hi...i've always had ocd- at least as far back as I can remember...but wasn't diagnosed until I was in high school. Right now I'm doing well, but you never know when those nasty spikes decide to hit (although I am working on "predicting" them). I'm constantly looking for better ways to deal with ocd. My sixteen year old son has been diagnosed with ocd and tourette syndrome...my five year old son exhibits some tics and compulsions, but it could be he mimics what he sees others do...since he just turned five, I'm holding out hope that this will pass him by. I've been trying to find an ocd board that is upbeat and positive- where it's okay to vent, but the main focus is on how to live best with the hand we've been dealt. I hope to find that here :)
