I can usually tell when im having ocd thoughts. I get very anxious, and feel that I dont think as rationally as I usually do. ive had all sorts of obsessions and I can tell you it will get better. I usually have to talk to my parents when Im going through an obessiom or complusion. they help me realize when im having an oc moment. they dont understand what im going through but they try to see things from my description of ocd. I think we all go through times where we feel like its never going to get better but it will. just takes patience.
