I feel very alone struggling with OCD. It seems like people that have never had OCD don't understand it well.

I guess it's hard to explain I'm suffering with OCD I guess all my life it's always been there but ever since the last 11 years it's been torture and I've been in and out of hospitals but with everything going on in the world today it's very hard to not be triggered I guess with a lot of it bringing you down I wind up hyperfocusing and trying to get something right in my life as and my focus is my hair I cut it and then I cut it too much and I cut it to try to fix it in my mind I think I have to fix it I have to fix it and then I spent hours and hours hyper focusing on it checking and rechecking and it's just getting to the point where I feel like I'm a failure and I can't get anything right I've even gone to different salons to try to fix it only they have to get it worse and then I'm back at it again I feel like I'm losing my mind sometimes and my loved ones don't understand and they want to help but they can't really understand and I'm neglecting them and myself I'm really having a hard time I'm ready to shave it all off and not even care anymore I just want to be normal I just want to be me but old me... 😥

My 17 year old son’s OCD triggers when getting out of bed. I’m afraid to call up “are you getting up?” Because he has said sometimes it is right in the middle of an episode and he has to start again and sometimes the number of times he needs to hit is 23 so he is late to school every morning. Problem is, he is also a teen and sometimes is just hitting the snooze button. He is very honest about this but I don’t know what to do. Do I let him be late to school and his job? He is annoyed by being parented and wants independence but I don’t know how to set up boundaries and expectations to guide us. Any ideas?

I'm currently struggling with OCD, planning to see a therapist soon but in the meantime I would appreciate some support from fellow sufferers. I'm here for anyone who wants to vent 2, feel free to message me.
