hi, i've had (severe) ocd for my entire life, but was just diagnosed recently. previously, i thought that i just had depression and social anxiety disorder (which i do have, but i have since learned that ocd is the underlying/primary disorder).
i have essentially no social life. i don't talk to anybody, except for a couple friends, who i message with on facebook maybe once/week.
i only leave the house to work, exercise, or buy food/supplies.
i don't talk to any members of my family. i have never (ever) had a substantive conversation with either of my parents. every member of my immediate family has a mental illness (there are prescription meds all over the family home); however, i don't actually know which illness (or illnesses) anybody has... because we don't talk.
i'm really glad to have found this site so that i can talk to people who understand.
