I want to help!

Hey, I'm Damako. To start things off, I will say that I want to help all of you because I know what you're going through. Last summer I thought I had AIDS. My friend poke me with a peice of metal that he had been poking alot of other people with. Then I saw a spot on me that looked like a AIDS legion. I tried to get the thought out of my mind but my OCD would just keep bringing it back in. I went into a deep depression. Every second of every minute of every hour of every day I worried about AIDS. I went to the doctor and he said I was fine but I still didn't get better. Not even the birth of my neice could get me pass my problem. I stopped running and just about everything else in my life besides worrying. Then one day as I was on the brink of losing my sanity, my mom got her friend who was a psychaiatrist to help me. My mom told me what her friend told her and I was ready to give one last push to get back on my feet. I started running again, and got my life back on track. Sure my OCD tries to scare me constantly but I fight it and I'm not ready to give up. It turns out I didn't have anything wrong with me. I will never get my hypochondriac experience but I will use it to drive me to reach my goals and I hope I've helped you. Never give up there is always hope!
