I am really trying to understand OCD and pray it will go away again. I had it when my 1st son was born ( I didn't know what the intrusive thoughts were at the time. I assumed hormones. I didn't look into it much and took care of my boy and it went away) now 20 years later and alot of stress and I have the thoughts back. it's been a year. will they go away. or are they here to stay? I don't want to live like this forever. it's exhausting and depressing.
