Having and dealing with OCD
I am a flawed person who has had obsessive compulsive disorder most of my life. I realize that this blog is called "Homework Assignment", but this is a journal about dealing with OCD. I don't like having this disorder. Strangely enough, it has become a blessing in disguise. I have gotten closer to the Lord. I have a deeper understanding of life in general because of my growing faith. I am okay now, at least now. I was bored listening to the same songs over and over again. I was just bored and I just started to pray. I finally took time with God and poured out whatever ails me. I had issues that were emotional as well. I was filled with resentment, bitterness, and anger. Fear and anxiety are two other issues that have been a part of my life. In fact, I have had OCD most of my life. I felt like others in the world didn't care about me or how I felt. That was why I had all of those negative thoughts. I no longer have them. I have come to realize that confession is definitely good for the soul.
