How you doing,is this still worrying you? 

try and think of some good things like evidence that young peple probably aren't going to give you trouble or times young people have been nice to you lately.  Not made-up idreas, or youll just end up tfeeling that you're kidding yourself, but observations.  Your mind will make up an untrue idea about what's going on, then just eep elaborating on how bad things are, and lose sight of real life altogether because it's got hold of the idea that somethng is wrong and is juset elaborating on that.  You have to keep replacing it with new facts from outside.  It doesn't matter if you can't get thet other idea out of yur mind or if you still can't really feel convinced about i, just try and thing about the other things as well, alongside those.  Works slightly for me.

Unless, of course, young people really have ben causing you a lot of bother lately.  In which case, still probably a good idea, because it's probably because you're nervous from having been shut up with your OCD for so lon, and someone acting nervous always draws the bullying type like a magnet!  So if you're no0t already thinking the worst you'll act more confident and that'll give people the idea to be nice to you.
