    Through The Eyes Of An Ocd Person

    It's 3:03 at night. Mother, father, and all the siblings are asleep wandering through the realm of dreams. You are fixed in a state of the stark night's reality. You tiptoe over nameless substances, lurking, littering your room, to steal a glance out the ebony window...

    Well.. It's a little emberrasing.

    But it's true. Not everytime but mostrly I get scared. I'm old enough to have my own place, but the thoughts about being home alone at night, fears me sometimes. I'm a grown up, so it should't be a problem, but it is. I've had some pretty bad experiences with being alone at...
