Dear all, do any of your followers that suffer from medium to severe OCD had to take multiple breaks from school ? Did they go back ? What did/what are they doing during those breaks? Did they deal with an unsupportive and abusive familial atmosphere?

Also, I wanted to add that if the first therapist/psychiatrist/psychologist isn't working out for you, it's okay to go to another one! My friend said that it's like shoes, if the first one doesn't fit right, keep trying until you find one that does!

Why is there a red correction underline in the OCD awareness slide? Are you a sadist?!

On a more serious note, if this bothers your OCD so much then why reblog it? Also, did you consider that the name of this blog is not actually a word and therefore would give my brain a panic attack if I added it to the dictionary?

Hello! I just wanted to introduce myself here. My name is Michelle and I've been suffering from OCD for a really long time. I'm 21 now and see a psychiatrist regularly. I'm currently on two medications for my disorder, and they are Risperdal and Celexa/Citalopram. It took me til I was 17 to get diagnosed, and for a long time I thought I was crazy. So for those of you who still haven't seen a doctor about it, keep holding up and trucking through because it's definitely worth it and so are you. :)

I don't know of anybody that suffers with the same type of obsessions as me. I've searched the internet but nothing even talks about it. My therapist identified it so I know it must be a real thing. I was just wondering If you had ever heard of "original form ocd" I feel so alone and I don't know what to do. Am I the only one who feels like this?

Hey hun, Unfortunately I haven’t heard of this before. I just tried searching for it as well, but couldn’t find anything on it. Perhaps try asking your therapist what she meant by ‘original form OCD’, maybe it is what she/he calls another type of OCD. If you want to, here is a list of other types of OCD/related disorders so you can have a look at that if you want and see if any of them fit what you are going through.

If you have a look at this website it has lists and information on different types of compulsions and obsessions, your therapist could be referring to something to do with types of these things.

Remember that you aren’t alone. There are so many people here, and I’m sure someone will understand what you are going through, even if they use a different name for it xx

If anyone has heard anything about this, then please message in or reply to this post!

Hey, have you seen the new BuzzFeed post about OCD? It's called, "23 Things People With OCD Are Tired Of Hearing." I have OCD, and it's pretty accurate! :)

Hi, I run a blog called mental-health-advice. We help with every mental health related issues like self harm, eating disorders or relationship, gender and sexuality issues. We created a live chat and have dozens of pages. It would really really mean the world to us if you could follow/post this for your followers, so we can help even more people. But, make sure that if you do follow, it is on mental-health-advice rather than this (my admin blog) Thanks in advance, Dani :)
