    This is much needed. OCD is being distorted worse by the media. Magazines are now writing articles about “types” of ocd as though there are different disorders of ocd instead of within the condition as a whole including “ perfectionist ocd,” “homosexual ocd” “hit and run ocd” “thoughts of harming others ocd” “ pure O” ocd and it’s disgusting. There is no person with OCD that only thinks one type of thought or has a specific type of ocd- ocd is ocd. By nature the thoughts – and they run the gamut- are disturbing or unwanted and negative – drive the conpulsions and that’s for everyone with this. Whether it’s that your going to die of an illness if you don’t wash your hands or whether it’s some other irrational thought it’s all disturbing. The OCF should get this out there and stop letting the world and the media determine and propagate this nightmare and misinformation further confusing this condition even worse.
