Hello. I'm new. Let me explain myself to you. - January 25th 2010, 06:04 AM

My name is Katie. I am sixteen.

I have moderately severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, which leads to anxiety, insomnia, and depression. I've got many issues to go along with these, and I am seeking support and comfort.

If anyone wants to talk, I'd rather like that.

Well Katie, there is always the chat, where you can talk with folks. Or post on various forums, where you may find folks with common issues to yours. It may prove beneficial to you. Hope you enjoy it here, and get the help/support/friends you wish to obtain.

Hello Katie, I'm Fletcher. It's a pleasure to meet you!

I don't have OCD, but I can certainly relate to some of your symptoms. I don't know what help I might be, but you're more than welcome to track me down if you'd like someone to talk to.

Welcome to TeenHelp, and I hope you enjoy your time here.


The atoms that make up you and me were born in the hearts of suns many times greater than ours, and in time our atoms will once again reside amongst the stars. Life is but an idle dalliance of the cosmos, frail, and soon forgotten. We have been set adrift in an ocean whose tides we are only beginning to comprehend and with that maturity has come the realization that we are, at least for now, alone. In that loneliness, it falls to us to shine as brightly as the stars from which we came.

Hey Katie and welcome to TeenHelp.
There are a lot of places you can go for support on the site, such as the forums, LiveHelp, HelpLINK, and the chat.
If you'd like to talk you can PM me or add me to msn if you have it (you can get my msn off of my profile).
While I don't have OCD I can relate to your anxiety, insomnia, and depression. If there's anything I can do to help you don't be afraid to send a message my way.

Fletcher! That's such a cool name. It's nice to meet you as well, and thanks for the message

As well as the both of you. If you'd ever like to talk, you can message me or something. I'd rather like that.

Hey

Im a fellow OCD sufferer... and I know exactly where your coming from... Its the anxiety that I struggle most with!

I can't say how much I appreciate all this. You guys are so sweet and you seem genuinely caring about my wellbeing.

That really means a lot to me.


And I'd love to talk further with you about your OCD in comparison to mine. I've got some odd ones..
