In my experience, the people affected most by Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (besides the one who has it) are the people living with the person with OCD. Some other friends and family can definitely be affected, as well, depending on the level of OCD.
Oh, the depths that can be involved with OCD are hard to fathom unless you've seen it first hand. Some of the lengths some people have gone to and still do go through for me in order to make me comfortable because they love me and want to be there for me are difficult to describe.
I feel sad for things people go through or have gone through for me.
I feel blessed that God has placed so many amazing people (past and present) in my life. The depth of their love for me is incredible.
The words "thank you" fall flat compared to some of the thankfulness I feel in my heart.
