OCD is something I have dealt with since my pre teen years. There are many types of OCD such as checking, contamination, intrusive thoughts and hoarding. My type is checking. I constantly check the door and do things over and over again. I would walk over a crack and walk all the way back to do it again. It gets really frustrated.
One of the most stressful things is when it happens in public. People look at you like your crazy. It is hard to stop because the brain is telling you to do these things. I have been getting better on my own. I tell myself not to do things so I can try to stop. Sometimes it work and sometimes it doesn’t. I had a trauma when I was around 12 years old which is when It started. I hate it so much because I lost myself and it has been 9 years. Ways to get help, is to take therapy so that you can get help and take steps to get to where you wanna be.
