World OCD Day is October 10, and so much advocacy has to be done!
Our world has created a society that thinks Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is just aligning all the pencils into a straight line, or everything has to match or else. It isn’t linear, and everyone’s journey with OCD is different. In our culture, “I’m so OCD” has become a common way to describe a quirk or habit people have rather than a mental illness itself. So, I am sharing my story not only for World Mental Health Week, but OCD Week as well.
Then my OCD began to come ’round and play. Those days were always so much fun. That was sarcasm, if you couldn’t tell.
