how come it is so hard for people to understand OCD, i honestly cant say a time that my friends havent said something when my cumpilsions take over. I cant stand when my OCD interfears with my social life because it seems that nobody understands what i am going through. i have days when i feel really confident and have faith i am going to get better and then there are days where i fight back and my anxeity goes through the roof and i am stuck giving into my cumpulsions. i hate when people say talk it out but i cant talk to people that dont understand what i am going through therapists or what they dont get it, i have friends that try to understand but nobody gets ocd unless you are living with it im so tired of it

You always have people on here that are here for you. I know how you feel. My family tries to understand but those that live without OCD won't ever fully understand because our brains are wired differently. They have the ability to dismiss bad thoughts and anxiety while those of us who do have it can't shake it off unless we give into the compulsions that we think will fix the problem. I have tried so many times to explain it to people but even I don't fully get why I am the way I am sometimes. It's hard but we can overcome it. If you ever need to talk feel free to add me and vent if you need to!

Stay strong! Push the barriers and walls that ocd has. Don't let up! We can climb through this together

I feel for you, and understand how mind numbing this disorder/dis-ease can be. I think the most frustrating part about it is education. What I mean is you can know exactly what is going on, but we still have trouble stopping it. I know it's my ocd, I know it's flared up, but yet, I still seem to answer to it. So I know exactly what you are going through. I feel the same way about therapist, even though they're genuinly trying to help. They don't really understand what we go through unless they have it themselves. It's like a non-alcoholic trying to figure out an active alcoholic. All I can say is I know what you go through and that you are NOT ALONE!

That's it exactly - "nobody gets ocd unless you are living with it". I have the same problem and that is why I am isolated from my side of our family now. They just don't get it. That is why this support site is so great to be part of. People here understand. I also think that OCD can come in waves like manic depression where you feel confident for a period and then extremely depressed. At least that is what seems to happen to me. Take care.

Life is a vibration of experiences resounding through time. How we decide to be tuned makes it ring with love, happiness, sorrow or even loneliness.
