Hi 🙂 Thanks for visiting my blog page. The aim of my posts are to share my own experiences of OCD and raise awareness of the condution.
I’m 21 years old, female and I live in Central Scotland.
OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) is an anxiety disorder and can range from mild to severe. It comes in many different forms. I have a fear of forgetting things (obsession) so to avoid this fear, I use lists for to help me remember (compulsion). I can’t imagine my life without my lists but that doesn’t mean I want to keep them. They have begun to affect my social life and relationships and I determined to fight it. OCD is horrible at times and the anxiety that it causes can be debilitating – my OCD causes me to think of the worst.
OCD isn’t always about checking, counting, cleaning or washing hands and I want to raise awareness of this.
