      I never feel really welcomed when my friends invite me to things like dinner or to hang out together. I have a situation like this, I struggle because a good friend looks like someone who gave me absolute hell years ago and they were horrible. And everytime I see my friends it brings it all back. I just have to leave my friends, go home and be alone with my OCD.

        I get what you mean. I often feel like that irrespective of ocd. I’ve found that people I used to take as friends were not really friends at all. These days I honestly prefer my own company, and a good book.
