I Suffer From Ocd and Anxiety

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 333 People

    I am able to convince myself I've done things I

    haven't done...and feel a terrible guilt. I also convince myself whenever someone says something it's against me...as though the entire world is out to get me. I can't stop...and this burden is becoming very heavy. Does anyone have any tips, if you've had a similar issue?

    Upcoming Trip

    Thinking about an upcoming trip should be relaxing and comforting, right? Yes. Is it? No, no, no, no, no. At least, not when it is four hours in a car with your cute-but-obnoxious six year old brother and a dad who thinks the world revolves around him. Especially when you have...

    Hoarding Vs Clutter Phobia, Which One Is Really Ocd?

    Why is the media so fixated on OCD being about hoarding, when hoarding is the opposite of everything that OCD stands for? People with OCD tend to be organized, neat freaks and clean. Hoarders on the other hand are disorganized, messy and a general health and safety hazard. They...

    I hate how I'm feeling like now.

    The feeling blank and bored. It looks like the whole world is starting to become darker and darker. I just want to die. I feel like I can't stand this anymore. I made people around me feel bad and uncomfortable. I don't want to live anymore, who cares?
