Our first story has very kindly been sent in by Chris, a former sufferer who wishes to share his experiences in the hope it will help others who may be going through what he did and encourage them not to feel so isolated, below is an excert from the full downloadable story...
'Once I remember handing in homework that was very bold in ink, it was so weird and awful the teacher became so incensed that he held it up in class and demanded to know who it belonged too! He clearly thought that through my neglect I had no respect for his homework or his lessons. The truth was in fact that after finishing his homework my OCD told me to painstakingly go over every single letter again with my pen! And then again! And then again! And then again until I was happy in my head, if only he knew!!'
