Default Re: Questions..

What words would you use to describe your OCD? Restless, routine, obsession, anxious, structure, organinsed, panic, stress, cleanliness, worried.

What colours would you associate with it? Silver, Orange, Red, Green, Purple.

How does it make you feel? Aggravated, paranoid, stressed and anxious.

If you have or currently are getting through it, how have you done this? I haven't "got through" this. I get therapy sessions to help me not to be so obsessive and to not to panic and stress out over disruptions of routines or particular quirks. It's not of great help but it's one of those things I have learn to live with.

What would you compare your OCD to? I don't know? Something neatly organised, clean and structured. Any interruptions and I'll let loose.

How has it affected you? It annoys people greatly, I have a fairly long-ish list of quirks which I won't bother putting down. If something isn't the way it should be I start to panic and become aggravated. I won't stop thinking about it unless it's put right. I have to be completely organised, everything needs to be planned well and I like routines. I won't touch anything that appears "bacteria-fied" without washing my hands with anti-bacterial soap so I spend a lot of time with that. Also, I occupy myself with checking things in the house are in order and there are no odd numbers around and I worry and apparently waste too much time with things like that.
