      Hi, Do you think are a bad person because of OCD? Because I do too. But we aren’t really…or are we?

      I think ocd is an innate part of us, a part of our being. To put it bluntly, we’ll never really recover. We  make what we may see as OCD ‘mistakes’, but we don’t learn from them. We think we always do wrong, and honestly my thoughts make me feel sometimes like a common criminal. I’m always a failure and everything goes wrong, I always know how NOT to do something. It’s not a good thing to be like this and I want it to just stop.

        Not because of OCD it rarely makes people do bad things directly 

        anyway few people are bad all the time
