What is your experience with feeling like no one understands your obsessive thoughts?

      I haven’t had the experience of no one understanding, more like they don’t take it serious or they think it’s “normal” I feel like I just get invalidated :/

      I have told a few people. No one I have told has been especially surprised. So I guess I was the most surprised by my diagnosis- not those who dealt with my issues. It has opened up communication for me with a few people

      Very few people know I have OCD, so I told very few people. I think those I told don't understand, but they do try. I don't think anyone can truly understand unless they've been there. Unfortunately...

      Hm... I spoke to trusted friends. If not that, I justified how there are billions of people on this Earth, trillions of stars combusting somewhere, and only one of me so naturally I'm biased. Stuff like that.
