What if I just stab someone and I can’t stop myself?
I suffer from Pure-OCD. I didn’t know that until a few years ago when the combination of checking online to see if I was insane and an astute nurse practitioner revealed my condition. The first led me to people like me, giving me the courage to say something. The second said, “You have OCD. There are medications that can help you.” Today, I’m powering my way through an intense relapse of OCD and panic disorder with the help of my ridiculously supportive husband, my therapist and my prescriber. I’m not sure where I would be without them, but like so many other things, I’d rather not think about it.
