Hello,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.
Obsessive compulsive disorder is a type of anxiety that produces uneasiness, apprehension, fear or worry and repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing the associated anxiety. From what you have described it looks like you have depression and not OCD because you have not mentioned about any repetitive activity like excessive washing or cleaning, repeated checking, extreme hoarding etc.

I would suggest you to get an examination done from a psychiatrist and get the diagnosis confirmed first. The treatment options for OCD includes cognitive behavior therapy and antipsychotic medications, often in combination with psychological and social supports. Cognitive behavior therapy stresses on concentrating on reality check and explains pointlessness of fantasies and irrational thoughts to the sufferers. This is done by psychiatric sessions with a psychiatrist. Sometimes support groups may also help in the healing process.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
