    Hi Kaleigh,

    Have you seen a psychologist as cognitive behavioural therapy may help you with your OCD. I am not in any way denigrating the use of medication. I am a nurse who suffers from chronic depression. Medication has helped heaps but so has some retraining about how I look at what people say or do. I don't liken my depression to a black dog but rather a deep well. I try to get out and be happy two steps up, I slide down one but I'm still getting better. Hope you have some great friends as a help team.
