Okay, I'm 12 and I think I have O.C.D. I have rituals that I have to do like when I walk by my bathroom door I have to look in the two shower curtains, sometimes smell the shampoo or conditioner, jump up in down near this mirror, and more. I do other rituals other places, too. I also have to touch things or make things go in a certain way. I also have these numbers that are always in my head. The big problem is this: no one except my best friends know. I sort of told my mom once but think she was in denial and made herself forget. Same with my sisters and other family members. I just don't want to stress my family out more because my sister and brother both have bipolar disorder and do crazy things sometimes. Please help me out of this horrible deleme ( I know I spelled it wrong)!
