    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.

    Beeee

    Hi Finn,

    Well come to our forums.

    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.

    Jaz xx
