>>  and ocd... how common is it. ive been reading up on this lately and i believe i have it. im not sure to what extent it is, but i believe i have it. basically sometimes ill feel "weird," or, "out of it," like i could phase out on something for a long time or perhaps my eye balls could roll to the back of my head.

>>  now, this is causing me to obsess about this type of anxiety or whatever it is. and it's bothering me. i know someone else has been bothered with depersonalization. i often worry about the gay fears, but it isnt bothering me anymore. its moved on to this. its weird how ocd works, and how another disease can incorporate its way into one already making you suffer.

>>  well i just thought id share as im obsessing about this, and how it will affect my family and i. i pray to god that i will be able to continue to live a normal life and give my son and girlfriend everything they ever need.

>>  i just wish i could be normal sometimes. like any other human being working 9-5 and living in a house with a white picket fence.

>>  i just wish i could be normal. i just wish i could be normal.

>>  :(

>>  good bye!

>>  god bless.

I know exactly what you are going through and I think everyone here does too. First of all your eyeballs will not roll in the back of you head because each eye is secured by 4 muscles...i know reassurance makes me feel better. Secondly, no one is normal. I always say that too...why cant i be a normal 20 something and just enjoy life to the fullest. Why am i contantly stricken with worry? I'm sure your girlfriend and son love you very much and know you are doing your best.
