While I’m glad that obsessive-compulsive disorder has emerged in our cultural consciousness and that some realistic depictions of it are being depicted in mass media, it’s extremely annoying how often I hear people claim that they are sooooo OCD over…
I hate when people use this term casually. My OCD is mostly untreated, although treatment for my anxiety disorder has helped it a lot.
But I still get panicked if my routines are disrupted. I can’t let my toothbrush touch the bathroom counter. When I had ants in my room, I paced in circles watching them until I felt them all over my body and had to leave or completely melt down.
So please. Think before you describe yourself as OCD. It is not an adjective, it is a disease.
Interesting, please reblog! :)
