Having OCD definitely sucks! As if there isn't enough to deal with in life. Getting well is hard work too. All this would be enough on your plate, if it weren't for further problems that can come up when some people's families get involved in their OCD too. Sure, they mean well, and they think they are helping, but a lot of times they don't do the right thing because they just don't really understand what it's like. How could anybody understand something like OCD if they don't actually have it?
