OCD is a mental health condition I’ve been battling for years. It has plagued my life and had a huge impact on my last relationship.
I used to hate people joking about my OCD. I kind of laughed it off and hoped they’d drop the subject or simply go away. Now? I have an urge to educate people about what OCD really is.
In their eyes, I have this strange ritual that I perform seems ridiculous to them. Little do they know it’s just my coping mechanism. Trust me! Everyone has some form of OCD. Most are minor, few are major. The difference is only in degree but we’re all in this together, we’re all in the same boat.
Here’s an interesting question. Where did my OCD come from? I guess I was born with it. It’s no secret, no big deal and probably nothing new to people who know me well. Gratefully, they accept the way I am. Whatever, I’m living with it and prefer to deal with it privately. All in all, I’m not ashamed of it.
Now I know why there’s only a very fine line between strength and weakness. Neither is more or less important than the other. It’s up to you how you want to see OCD and use it to your advantage. I totally get it and I’m saying this in an orderly fashion!
