      I’ve had OCD all my life and really value my relationships with my best friends but really fear OCD will mean I lose them. Cause doesn’t OCD attack things which you value most? I try to live in the here and now and think whatever OCD made me do or not do, it’s not the end of the world. But I don’t really deep down believe that. OCD tells me I’ve done a load of bad stuff, even if I haven’t and it sucks! How can I not lose my friends?
