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.
