Hi,

I just came across this forum and thought well hey I might share this with someone. For a while now I think I've been suffering from OCD. I spend most of my time counting things, washing myself a certain number of times, making sure everything is ordered and tiding to such a perfect state, when I'm stressed I clean, and I always feel like I'm fighting off these unwanted thoughts. I'm always afraid that I'm going to harm people close to me, like that I'll become a murderer one day or something like that....I don't know why but it's just one of these fears that keeps coming back. most of the time I can't sleep because my mind is flooded with these thoughts of anxiety and I often have panick attacks. I'm only 16 years old and have entire conversations with myself..I'm not talking about the talking to yourself that everyone does..it's different..and quite scary when I look back on it. For years now I have entertained suicidal thoughts and have often desired for that 'way out'. I honestly don't know what to do. I have been like this for a while now and generally keep it to myself. It's just that more and more everyday I feel like my brain is deteriorating to where I just can't think clearly anymore; I have been the top of my class all my life, and now I can't think, I have headaches non-stop, I feel like crying all the time, and my speech is slurring. Is there anyone else out there who knows what I'm feeling here??

Josh

  • Ignor the nasty people.If you have constant headaches and your speech is slurring, I think you should get checked out by a doctor.If you have any exposure to pigeon droppings mention Cryptococcus as this can cause long term headaches.

  • Josh, I also have OCD. But still value life. You have identified the problem, now you can either deal with it or let it ruin you. You control OCD, dont let OCD control you. Go see a doctor and get on some meds. There's no shame in asking for help. Please dont ever doubt your life. Respectfully,Martin

  • This does sound like obsessive compulsive disorder, which understandably is causing stress. Maybe that explains the headaches? Please tell a trusted parent or other adult. There are ways to treat this. Things can be better.Thinking of you Josh!
