So im an 18 year old girl. When i was a young girl i would constantly check the doors to see if they were locked, constantly checking on my cats. i knew i had OCD. it got easier when i grew older i stopped caring and starting partying. but now after 5 years of partying and calming down, I always think something is wrong with me. i have had 2 very unexpected experiances that has changed me and lead me to think the worse and think the worse is wrong with me. Every time i have a cough i know i just have the swine flu. I go on the internet and check over the symptoms over and over again. I ALWAYS wash my hands and can hardly touch door handles or light switches or anything dirty for that matter. I wish there is just something I could do to still know i am healthy and to just quit worrying. i never learned of my disease until about 5 people in the same week told me i was a hypochondriac and i wish i could just chill out!!
