Is there anyone out there as bad as me? Since my high school days i have developed this most irritating strain of paranoia. it ventures along me checking that my folks are still breathing, that all the doors are locked and windows closed in the house, that no one or nothing is hiding under my bed, that the stove is off (tested by placing my hand on the stove), that my car doors are locked etcetera etcetera...so freaky and bloody annoying!!! was so scared to have children even as i was'nt sure as to what level my paranoia would now go. What it boils down to, is that i suffer from OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). went to a shrink, tried various methods, but i just cannot shake it. have a child, obsessions seems to have mellowed a bit and then there are days where i'd rather not leave the house cos i cannot stop checking stuff. continue at this rate, and i'll end up in the loony bin. any suggestions?

I have a bit of paranoia but not ocd. Isn't ocd a chemical inbalance in the brain? Maybe you should take medication or at the very least see someone about it so you can cope with it. I heard it it torture to live with. I really hope you can get some help.
