A couple of days ago at school i had a panic attack. I'm just so stressed at the moment , a girl at school is starting rumors about me being a prostitute ( I'm 14!!), I'm under so much pressure because the state soccer finals are coming up and the whole team expects me to win for them, my reports coming soon and my mum, dad and couch expect straight A's, my sister hates me and constantly tries to find ways to make me angry or feel bad about myself and i got humiliated 3 days ago in front of the whole school during a drama presentation when a guy in my class ripped off my dress with a pocket knife. All this in one week and the thing is I've been diagnosed with OCD i want, no NEED everything to be perfect and in place or i start to freak and go and scrub the bathroom floor until my back aches , neck hurts and in extreme cases be dragged away or i color code my books and fold all the clothes in the laundry. I know i don't have it as bad as others but sometimes i wish i could just crawl into a ball and disappear
I understand your concerns and stressors at school and home. While OCD can indeed make daily life very difficult and stressful especially for teens, this can be managed with cognitive behavior therapies and medications. I recommend that you talk to your parents about this, consult your doctor for management and remember that you are in charge, not OCD. Take care and hope to hear from you soon.
