Hi. This is my first time writing to this group. I lost my mother suddenly March 16, 2008 to a brain aneursym. It was suddena and such a shock. I've had OCD since I was a child, found out what it was in college and have been working on it every day since...so about 13 years now. I have more difficulty controlling it when I'm under extreme stress, so the loss of my Mom has truly set my head in a tailspin. I get stuck on things much easier and have a harder time getting unstuck. My Mom starting reading about OCD when I shared what I'd learned about in my PSY class. She had worked hard to understand it and me...she also helped others who had it b/c she could spot it and help them understand it. She knew me and it's not easy to find that when you have OCD. Mostly I'm just looking for people who understand and can listen. Thank you.
