    My head hurts a lot and I have some OCD.

    The OCD has improved somewhat so that is a good thing. I still obsess over certain things. Just a lot of issues I am feeling sad about.

    and give up, don't expect things in return. It's out choice right? It's not like I'm personally asking for your help. I'm going to be okay, okay?

    but it got worse after I had my surgery in September. I was out of school for two months and I guess me being in the hospital and then being inside the house because I couldn't go anywhere may have had something to do with it. And when I got back to school I felt out of place...
