Katie, 23, UK

I have had to ask for a demotion at work because my new role meant I had to touch a different light switch.

katie-no-textI had to change my course at university because I was too scared of the building in which the lectures were held.

Yesterday I took three hours to sit in a chair because I kept thinking I would kill my family.

My girlfriend broke up with me because OCD meant I couldn’t touch anything.

My family go on holiday without me because if I join them then the plane will crash.

I am 23 but have never done my own laundry because dirty clothes terrify me.

I can’t remember what it is like not to be scared all the time.

I didn’t hold my Grandma’s hand when she was dying because I was afraid to touch her.
