The Invisible Disease
This Is My Story!
What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder!
(OCD) is an invisible dibilitating disease that can affect people of all walks of life, gender race, religion and age. The disease can manifest itself when a person gets caught up in a cycle of intrusive thoughts, obsessions and compulsions.
When a person is anxious or despressed the disease can make a person do unreasonable or unnessary actions which under normal circumstances would not happen.
If a person is happy and relaxed the disease subsides.
I want to tell my story of my OCD which I have suffered for more than 30 years.
I have good days and bad days.
When I am less worried about things in general I notice my OCD less.
If I am anxious or depressed or both then my OCD sky rockets.
My OCD is the fear of contamination of germs and people that carry them.
My fear of germs is not neccessarily the fear of me falling ill if I am contaminated but more so the fear of something bad happening to me if I am exposed, such as not having enough money to survive or my nearest and dearest becoming ill through my bad choices and decisions or touching something that has been touched by someone, who has harmed me. Sometimes the fear of the unknown can set off my anxieties, that turns into intrusive thoughts, that turn into depression and the cycle continues.
