I am fifty one years old and have recently found out, that I do, in fact have OCD. I used to feel like I was the only one that felt strange in a world of "normalcy" I think this board is a great way to helpp each other. I do not USE any meds and only go for therapy. I obsess about my health a lot and feel very alone and scared of life and even more scared of death. I have a germ issue and whenever I go into a deli or pizza place if the person has their hands over their mouth or seems unclean, I walk out, rather than deal with their germs.
