Hello Finn, can I join Sophie in welcoming you to the site.

You should never feel alone as many people suffer from either one of these illnesses or a complex range of them, I have OCD and did suffer from PTSD and offer any help we can assist you with.

Best wishes.

Geoff.

Hi Finn,

Welcome! So glad to have you here : )

As Geoff mentioned, you're not alone, there's a lot of people here to share your experiences with. I myself experience OCD.

Hope you can find the support you need and maybe impart some of your own wisdom.

Hi Finn,

I also suffered with OCD and am very grateful to say I have recovered.

Please feel free to ask us anything.

Hi Finn,

Nice to meet you and welcome. My name is Jaz! I do have GAD and probable undiagnosed OCD.

I hope you find the forums to be a safe and supportive space - you are not alone here.
