Empathy for Sufferers

My purpose in writing the "What I Have Learned About Anxiety Disorders" page was to not only help sufferers understand themselves but was written mainly to provide friends and family members with information about why we are the way we are so they might perhaps be able to understand us and, therefore, offer us love and support. I have since referred numerous friends and family members to my pages and have received either no response at all or negative responses to that page. I am now thinking perhaps no amount of information will help friends and family members offer us the love and support we so desperately need. Perhaps OCD is something "normal" people will never understand. This page, therefore, is being written specifically for all of my fellow OCD sufferers.
