my nephew has severe ocd and we offered him a place to stay in our home. he is on the max dose of prozac and says he feels a thousand times better. its hard to tell, though. we even bought him a puppy whom he loves dearly (um, he is 19 yo if this makes a difference - he def obsesses over the girls!!). but even having ocd (very mild), i can't begin to understand what its like to be him. to me it looks like he is trapped in a little box. i hate to see this, it breaks my heart, but what i really want is for anyone with ocd to explain to me what it is like to do the rituals, go through the stress, when do you feel relief - other than after rituals? if you do a "bad" thing a number of times doesn't it get easier? he says its harder and i just want to understand more. he even hates to talk about it so i keep it to a minimum. big breath, okay, just really, any look into the life of someone with ocd would be greatly appreciated!
