I’m about to write on a situation that I have no conclusion to. With my OCD that is difficult, but it is a fairly major issue in my life, so I figured I’m not going to wait around for a conclusion to type this. I like to wake up early. There was a time when …

(Yes, I am personifying “OCD.” It is like another person. And it reacts.) My office chair broke. As someone that works on my desktop computer about 16 hours every day for work and for… other work… this isn’t good. This is not good at all. My OCD compounds all of the bad, and I present …

I’m not always right. Because of this, I operate mostly in fear that something is going wrong. Sure, that fear is rooted in OCD. Or, really, just the intensity of the fear and my compulsions stemming from such. But my whole person is not wrong. The way I interact with the world—always afraid of obscure …

This is part of a series of ongoing OCD episodes, which I will post as they happen. This is live, stream of consciousness. It happens. Often. Sometimes the subjects are different. Why would one drink milk? No, this has nothing to do with taste or nutrition, and certainly nothing to do with the fact that …

As someone who battles with a mental disorder every minute of every day, I have conflicting feelings about the concept behind the word “crazy.” I’m not sure I’d go as far as saying I have any strong feelings about the word itself, which is an important distinction. I’ve never felt the word to be a …

[NOTE: So I will probably be on break for a week or so. In the meantime there are a whole bunch of good articles—and articles I wish were better—linked on the side there for you to… I don’t know… realize how OCD works I suppose. But that means I need to write about actually taking …

I would guess—and I’m pretty sure my guess is within a few percentage points of correct—that I spend 90% of my time merely doing what I’m supposed to do. Rounding up, I only do what I’m supposed to do. I only do what I’m supposed to do. When I have time to myself, I watch …

The most soothing part of OCD is routine. Compulsions are often routine. At the same time, the most unhappy part of OCD is routine. Happiness requires some form of novelty, which generally affronts routine. Novelty meaning doing something outside of the routine that could potentially bring about happiness in the discovery of new sensations felt …

One of the major features (yeah, I said features) of my OCD is that pretty much nothing that is created by others to help me is ever good enough. What I am generally talking about here is products, services, things from the corporate world. I happen to be lucky that I’ve been developing software since …

My disability is that I abhor variety. I’ve been doing a lot of research lately on the roots of being a better person all around. Not just a better person to those around me—I actually think I have that covered. I have come to realize I need to work on my own self. Getting back …
