    Hello everyone, I am a 23 year old man with ocd and anxiety to where I have to live with my parents. As a child, well I was a horrible person. I never did anything illegal, but I was a bully and just a rude person among other things. About a year ago my personality drastically changed, my ocd became more apparent, I became MUCH meeker, I can't handle being around aggressive people anymore. I became a vegetarian and a pacifist, and I started looking for religion to bring meaning to my life. I never liked Christianity growing up because I don't believe that God would ever have children, among other things I don't like about Christianity growing up in the U.S. Then at the library I happened to pick up a book about the Prophet Mohammed's life. I was entranced, I immediately picked up two more books about him and finished them quickly. Reading about him I was amazed at his success and his generosity, and even more so since unlike most religions, where all we have are stories and fables, all of what he did actually happened historically. Since then I have read many books on Islam and it's history. I am currently reading an abridged version of the Koran to understand it better and I hope that sometime next year I will be in a position to where I can formally convert.

    Hi Thomas! Welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy your stay here and that Allah leads you to the right path.

    As for OCD and anxiety they get worse as you put more emphasis on them, but the good news is they are both curable. Maybe with some understanding of yourself, your Creator, and the world around you, you'll find your peace
