I was wondering what everyone's experiences are/were with telling other people about your OCD. Do you keep it a secret or do you let everyone know? Also, how do you tell them? I try to tell people, but at the same time I try to keep as much of the symptoms hidden as possible because most of my symptoms involve sexual or violent intrusive thoughts, and I feel so shameful about these thoughts, so telling other people about them would be really hard. I also feel as though most people don't truly understand OCD, so if I told them about my thoughts they wouldn't really understand. I'm always afraid that many people will not understand, which is more than likely to happen. Any thoughts on this?
