OCD is often misunderstood and we have a tendency to criticize things we don’t know about. Here’s a look into my wacky life.
I have OCD. It’s an odd disease that has many interesting obstacles and hurdles. My mom always asks me “How can I help you?” Truth is there isn’t a cure but it can be treatable but it can also lead to other disorders such as social anxiety disorder and general anxiety disorder (yes I have those as well.)
I vacuum all the time can muster and own a container of glass plus for every room in the house. I don’t count steps or make sure my door is locked five times but I am an unforgiving perfectionist which is good in my work experience as long as I don’t expect the same of others. I do have to have everything in its place and I need things in rows and columns or I experience fear which turns into anxiety and turns into self doubt. I know this sounds negative but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. We all have problems and daily tests we must handle in order to better ourselves as human beings and contributors to society. I don’t have all the answers so that’s why I hide behind a sense of humor while asking question from the wise that can help me complete my mission. I would write more but I have lists to make. As always thanks for listening. 🙂
