30-Day BPD Challenge – Day 14

TICKLEBEAR(TICKLEBEAR)-OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE_DISORDER
Okay, who am I kidding?

Question for today: Do you ever become obsessive?

Okay, I got a good laugh out of today’s question. Yes, of course I am obsessive! So much so that I have obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) like no tomorrow. I am obsessive about everything having its place, I’m obsessive about how the toilet paper is put on the roll (over of course, right?), I’m obsessive to the point that I can walk into a room that I’m in often and know when something has been changed, and the list goes on, and on, and on, and on, and on…

Because of my OCD I do tend to be very ritualistic in many things that I do and while it may confound others, these rituals help me to control my anxiety. As mentioned above, not only does everything have its place but things also have a specific order in which they need to be done. To me, my OCD helps me to feel I have some control over an otherwise out of control world; so yes, I’m obsessive.

Since I’m posting this, I am not inpatient but that’s a topic for another blog post of its own…

Peace, love, and contentment,
Izzy
