Does anyone know what this situation is like? Well Im dealing with it. I have come a LOOOOOOOOOOONG way from this. It hasnt been all that bad but its still isnt enough. Ever since 2004 I've been suffering with this. Its a terrible thing. Not many people know its like to go through the days keeping your head from spinning out of control, insanely. But for anyone that is I would like ti know how it is. I am suffering right now with depression and OCD, which is known as obbsessive compulsive disorder. Why I share this? Well........whats the point in hiding it? Its a serious issue and it can happen to anybody. Most people may think Im insane but its not like that. Most the days I go through overly obsessing on thoughts which may or may not be an important thing. And if it gets out of hand, I become edgy and irritable. And sometimes constant noise makes me snap. But thats beside the point of this whole thing. See now I am getting better but I have to be careful with what I do. Heres the thing, having benefits is a great blessing. But you have to be careful. Why? Cause my disability isnt that life threatening. Its a very severe thing, but I can still get around and do stuff. ANd if I make a way far move towards something that can make me seem better, the benefits can get taken away. So that why I started this. I wanted to see who or what is going through what I am. Feel free to go and let it out. It would make me feel Im not alone, and if you are in this, you are not alone either.

I do understand how difficult it can be to struggle with some form of disability becuse I have close relatives and friends who are disabled, and though they do not suffer from OCD, I have heard of the disorder and there is help out there as you are probably already aware of, but anyway I've seen first hand the struggles that my friends and family go through so I defintly empathize with you becuse dealing with these kinds of issues though they are different they are not easy to live with, my friend struggles with getting transportation becuse her legs dont work to well, and she also struggles with financial issues, so all I can say is stay strong and thank-you for being so candid about your struggles.

You sound to be suffering from bipolar. I know of a friend here who is in this depression and would withdraw from the public when he feels depress. I think people like you needs others to understand you well otherwise you'll be mistaken as unsound mind. Are you taking any medication to ease your problem?
