Life sentence Without Parole

OCD. To me is like being locked in prison, and not knowing when or if I will ever be free. If you did not all ready know OCD is obsessive compulsive disorder, or Locked In Your Own Head Disorder. I have had problems with OCD since I was really young, When i was a child, I would ask my parents the same questions just to be sure and in school I was known as the goody-too-shoes, not because I wanted to be but because the thoughts in my head were so devastating I had to be. Now that I am older, I still have the same life sentence, I had to quit school because I was to anxious to even think of going, that really ruined my life because now I have no friends, and I am still stuck. Maybe one day I will be free but I am just not sure when.

It ruins my life, too. I call my OCD "The Hypocrite" because it lies to me. Honestly, out of all the disorders I have, OCD is probably the worst.
