I cant stop cleaning the house , my mom was the same but now she is ill... i try to look for the best hoover on line that will clean the dirt up good... but then i become depressed that it looks dorty again the next day and i have to start again. i hate dust so i dust and dust untill its gine but it comes back again... im not allowed to go out side cuz my dad wont let us , because if i go to the park and like someone , ill go home and cry and cry because i dont see them again, and some times i hurt my self... i pray because it helps me and distracts me a bit from cleaning. im 21 yrs old.. any ideas what is wrong with me?

  • You are 21 years old your dad cannot keep you in the house. by the sound of it i think that you hace OCD (obsessive compulsive dissorder) it is very common but it can be a hrd thing to diagnose. there is no such thing as treatment like pills its mainly councilling, one to one talk. i have hurt myself in the past and i have taken 3 over doses. all failed. when i used to cut my self i used to feel alot better for a while. when i did it, it felt like a load of steam and pressure was escaping out of the cut. but i soon realised that after i did it i felt no better all i had was the nasty cuts to remind me of what i done. they were hard to hide and people soon foun out. i think that its about tine that you got help, you are 21 yeras old you should be living your life to the full, looking forward to it. i really think that you should get help, i did and im slowly getting back on my feet. good luck with it, im not here to judge you, just here to give you some advice.:D i cant stop cleaning the house , my mom was the same but now she is ill... i try to look for the best hoover on line that will clean the dirt up good... but then i become depressed that it looks dorty again the next day and i have to start again. i hate dust so i dust and dust untill its gine but it comes back again... im not allowed to go out side cuz my dad wont let us , because if i go to the park and like someone , ill go home and cry and cry because i dont see them again, and some times i hurt my self... i pray because it helps me and distracts me a bit from cleaning. im 21 yrs old.. any ideas what is wrong with me?

  • to me it sounds like that you have OCD (obsessive compulsive dissorder) its a common thing but it can be a hard thing to diagnose. if your doctor doesnt think that you have it, dont give up dont just rely on one persons advice. im very depressed, i have cut myself taken 3 overdoses. i ma now finally getting help, its taken a while but its been worth it. you are 21 years old you should be living your life to the full, i jst advise you to get help. im not here to judge you, just to give you some advice. good luck I cant stop cleaning the house , my mom was the same but now she is ill... i try to look for the best hoover on line that will clean the dirt up good... but then i become depressed that it looks dorty again the next day and i have to start again. i hate dust so i dust and dust untill its gine but it comes back again... im not allowed to go out side cuz my dad wont let us , because if i go to the park and like someone , ill go home and cry and cry because i dont see them again, and some times i hurt my self... i pray because it helps me and distracts me a bit from cleaning. im 21 yrs old.. any ideas what is wrong with me?
