To kick-start OCD Awareness Week, we have this fantastic positive article written by Rhianna.
My names Rhianna, I'm 20 years old.
My battle with OCD began at a young age, I remember starting to obsess of protecting my sister when she was born, I was aged 5. I was put through tests and countless assessments for years, I was told I was a nervous wreck and that there was something wrong with me. I do not have a physical form of OCD, I have intrusive thoughts, or pure-o as some call it.
