OCD is making me miss school

4 posts in this topic

Okay so I've been diagnosed with OCD and I'm missing school because of the amount of anxiety it causes me. I don't want to miss school or go in late because of it. I worried people at school are going to think I'm weird and not going to want to be my friend anymore because of it? I'm 15 and I'm stressing my mum and dad out a lot too and that causes me more worry. I'm on the waiting list for CBT but until then what can I do?

I understand the anxiety part. I was looking for a little more detail. Are you late because it takes so much time to get ready due to contamination issues? That's the sort of thing I was looking for.
