Anyone suffer from OCD here?Watch
I was watching OCD on channel 4 earlier and boy, these people live in absolute filth! I don’t know how because my skin was crawling just watching it. 😓
Yes, I’ve been diagnosed with OCD, and it’s quite extreme to the extent that I have to wipe down everything every couple of hours.
In one way, I’m glad I suffer from this because it makes be clean and neat. 😊
For me, I love being clean and hygienic not only that, all my clothes and all have to be in a certain order and colours in my drawer too.
Hope that explains it better.
(Sorry, I didn’t know where to post this question!).
Went to a class once to manage it, my politics lecturer randomly ended up being there, and there was a woman who said she scrubbed her body until she bled every night because she was so paranoid about germs. She worked in a lab with viruses. Really unfortunate choice of job.
We had her assessed with the Priory and they diagnosed her behaviour as OCD.
As a nation, we always use it in almost a comedy way by saying 'I'm OCD about certain things' but until someone has it, you don't realise how crippling it is. She has started to develop ticks as well. I certainly feel for you both. I think, like anything like this, it's talking about it and making people realise how much it affects mental health.
I don't mind clutter, I've lived with kids all my life but it's especially when I'm really annoyed or frustrated i'll angry clean.
