What is O.C.D?
OCD stand for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, an anxiety disorder that affects approximately 12 out of every 1000 people in the United Kingdom (ocduk.org).
It is a common mental illness that is frequently misunderstood and misdiagnosed, as well as being misrepresented by popular media.
I have had OCD for as long as I can remember, however, it manifested itself in its most extreme form for the first time when I was 19 years old in 2008.
