    thank you for being so compassionate dr phil. you had someone on your show a few years ago with OCD and I felt like she was shammed for it. But I really feel like this man was greeted with love and understanding. thank you. our disease is hard, but treatable.

    I’ve had really bad OCD my whole life. My mom has it as well, I’ve just recently opened up about it. I finally got on the right medicine and it’s helped a lot. People say they have “ocd” as a joke but it’s very serious.

    Also people never take OCD seriously. There’s been nights where I have just cried and cried because I felt crazy. And I can’t control what thoughts I have. I’ve gotten so much better this past year and I’m no longer doing the “rituals”. I thank God for that.

Can be irritating when others claim to have this disorder just because they like certain things neat or tidy. We all have tendencies, but when those tendencies interfere with life it’s debilitating.

    I have religious OCD and it used to take over my life when I was a teenager. I used to have evil thoughts and even curse God's name and even satanic thoughts. I never knew why this happened to me since I grew up being completely normal and not under a fanatic religious family. OCD attacks you in numerous ways and you can't chose in what form. I can't even remember the amount of nonsense rituals I did, from talking to myself to writing prayers on my body and whispering nonsense stuff. I looked at myself in the mirror one day and I realized I was acting like a crazy person. I did all these things to cope with thoughts that didn't come from my heart, but rather things made up by my mind to make me unhappy.
    I cleared up almost 90% of all my "rituals" with just my mind (since I was shy to tell my parents about my condition). I was never treated with any medication, I just asked God for peace (not in the OCD way, just a normal prayer) and simply managed to not try to find a logic to those thoughts since they don't define you.

    This is why I hate the romanticization of mental problems like OCD, Depression, Anxiety, etc. People will say “Oh, I just have to have things a certain way, I have OCD!” and “Oh, I’ve been down for a little bit. I have depression!” Instead of actually seeking help or diagnosis. It harms the people that actually suffer, and in some cases extremely, from disorders such as this.

    I have OCD mostly checking but when I become very anxious I start hand washing. It is a very hard and exhausting disorder! It is not something you can just stop or get over immediately but with help you can get better. It seems like the stuff I do it totally ridiculous but I have to do it or else something awful will happen. I hope people begin to understand this disorder and not hold so much stigma and embarrassment around it. If you have it you are not alone!

    Ocd is fun. I get to wash my hands over and over again and when I try to walk away from the sink after I go to the bathroom I have this feeling in my spine like something isn’t right and it stays. Getting pissed off at my little sisters because I take them to the grocery store and they shop the wrong way. It sucks. The only beneficial thing is that I obsessively study biology and anatomy. I’ve been doing that since I was 12.

    I was a bit weird with OCD. I had it REALLY bad when I was little. Around 7 or 8. Everything had to be perfectly even. If I moved my left finger 3 times, I HAD to move my right finger 3 times. If I didn’t it drove me nuts. One day I just broke through this wall and didn’t move my left finger with my right. And it just went away after that. It was so strange….

    It actually take 2-3 and a half hours on the toilet for one session. I have another session before bed. It was at 4-5 hours. It peaked at 8 hours but the pain from fissures became so great that I had to force myself to get up. Normally I fight through the pain. My OCD has caused me to require surgery on my rectum at UC Davis from constant straining on the toilet. I have yet to receive this surgery because of the medical hoops I have to jump through. My gastroenterologist is worried that I could undo the surgery if I don't get help from a therapist. I'm only 27 and it's typically a problem that affects older women. It sounds humorous but it's something that has made me wish I was dead on occasion. Previously I would have to push 16 times and then wipe and if the toilet paper wasn't almost completely clean I would have to push another 16 times. I still do this but it's not quite as extreme and it's 4 to 8 times now. It still isn't where I'd like to be in my life.

    Even the overthinking and fearing of loosing others I love..Panic and anxiety attacks came a while after that too because of the overthinking…..

    To the point of not being able to ignore the thoughts and voices in my head that tell me,you didn't do this "ritual" do it now!..And if I try not to do it I suffer the entire time I'm lying in bed until I get up and do it…
