The term, an acronym for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, refers to a mental health condition that affects one in 100 children worldwide. It is characterised by recurrent, unwanted thoughts which lead to anxieties manifesting as repetitive behaviours.
This is a quote from Linda Paindexter, I thought it really nice way of describing the way we should look at mental health and your disorder, Amanda. Remember this when you feel bad about yourself or others do something to make you feel bad about your disorder.
