I have often said that if a normal(uh, non OCD person) were able to spend an hour inside our minds it would probably give them PTSD or something.
In this article a writer tries living life as one of her characters for a day. That character has OCD. It’s very interesting. Go give it a read.
And the money quote;
But I gained a new respect, and horror, for those living with OCD. Will I ever write that story? Only if I can imagine the life, and not live it.
It’s so refreshing to read something about OCD from a non OCD person that has some understanding of what we live with. I get really tired of those stupid psychological quiz/meme things that pop up all the time or people complaining they have OCD because they like to keep their CD collection in alphabetical order.
