    I love my husband and can't imagine my life

    without him. Not only he gives me the stability I need, he also feels the same if not more for me as well. He has severe OCD and is constantly trying to conceal it. He embraces his so-called, "disability" and doesn't mind it as much as others with OCD. Therefore he conceals it...
