This year has been a pretty great year and a pretty shitty year. I apologize for the language but that is best descriptive word I could find. The year has been a time of HUGE emotional growth for me. I have been grappling with OCD or obsessive compulsive disorder for a while and this year I was finally able to have the information and help to acknowledge it and treat it. My OCD has not taken over my life (thank goodness) but I do get small bursts of anxiety and depression that come with it. That time in my life very hard and emotional but it helped me become a better and healthier person. I have come out of this year a better person than before and I am so grateful for that. My family and my friends especially have made this year so much easier and so much more fun and I love them so much for it.
