I f you haven't already, please have your parents take you to your doctor. The SSRI meds have been very effective in the treatment of OCD. I have it and come from a family with a long history of it. Just remember, you are in charge of your thoughts and actions not your OCD. I wish you the best and God Blees

Try to keep track on how much times your doing it daily. And set a goal for yourself by washing your hands less. :) it helped me

Its alright dear... so do I, but not with handwashing thing. However, I keep my hands clean and use antibacterial soap when I wash it. Moreover, Im more particular with the toilet, bathroom, kitchen and floor.^^;
