I’ve never really mentioned this in my blog before, though I’ve gone back and forth in my head often, wondering if I should share…
I have diagnosed, severe OCD, more specifically, POCD. I decided recently to write about my struggles with POCD after having come across this article. It made me so frustrated, while these shown are phobias or quirks we all experience some variety of, it is not necessarily OCD.
So, I submitted this article as a response and would love to share with you. It touches a bit on my struggles with OCD, but I plan on writing more about it in time. After clicking “send” and hearing that it helped some, I realized I should share my story, and honestly, I feel a little bit lighter having done so. Life’s funny that way, no?
If you have any questions about POCD or OCD, please don’t hesitate to ask. And if you or someone you know struggles with this disorder, this foundation and this website can help.
