OCD isnt something you need to be scared about. Millions of people live with it and manage to live normal fulfilled lives.


There are many ways to help make OCD less intrusive in your life. I would certainly recommend finding a good psychologist who has a caring and gentle nature and see if they feel that OCD is an accurate diagnosis for what you are experiencing and also then maybe start having Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to help with it.


There are medications that are prescribed for OCD but sadly they do have the potential for side effects.


Many people have found great relief by using over the counter supplements for OCD


HTH :)
