The other day was a really rough one for me. Finals are coming up for me, and I am super stressed. I have a lot to do in between now and then. My OCD acted up badly today, and I honestly thought there was no hope for me. Thankfully, with my amazing roommate and a close friend of mine, I was able to overcome it.
It was hard, and it took eight hours (it’s now three in the morning, but hey, its gone!), but I’m finally feeling better. I read a post by this girl RuthieP and it made me feel a little better, knowing that I’m not the only one living with these problems.
I am so excited for May 21. I am going to be talking at the Dare To Dream Student Leadership Conference at Rutgers University with people who have OCD, Tourette Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, high-functioning Asperger’s, etc. and letting them know about myself. I honestly cannot wait!
Finally, I will be meeting people who have what I have. It’s going to feel just like home, I honestly cannot wait. If anyone would like to know about it, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love it if you would come. It will be an incredible experience, and I hope to share it will you all!
