Question Where is my OCD? - August 1st 2009, 07:01 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I labelled this as triggering but i dont know if it actually is.
Right, I'm very very minorly OCD. I like to order all my books, CDs etc. in alphabetical and then chronological order, and they're all exactly the same distance from the edge of the shelf. Everything has a specific place and woe betide anyone that moves anything more than 0.1 mm.
But since my bf broke up with me a while a go (a few months).... I've stopped all this... my CDs are a mess... but I just can't be bothered to change that... I'm still getting up and brushing my teeth and taking care of myself (well, mainly), and I hardly cry about him anymore... but, where is my OCD?? I don't get it... It's not like I'm cured. I just woke up one morning and I was like fuck it, he doesn't love me, why should I bother?... and my OCD was there years before I even met him... It has nothing to do with him.... So what is going on???!

This has happend to me many times with my OCD, some obsessions will remain for a LONG time, some will fade in the dusk. Perhaps a certain need was in order to be tidy when you were with him, but now you feel as if, you don't need your room to look amazing. My room is not NEARLY clean, as I use to have it

No, your OCD is not cured, I'm quite sorry to say.

maybe you ocd isnt cured maybe it is. who knows *shrugs*
maybe your ocd went away because your mind is focusing on
other things rather then your habits.

maybe it was aslo because you need something to control, and since you and your
boyfriend broke up you no longer need that.


enjoy it for now i would say

good luck!

Thanks.
I don't think my OCD is totally gone actually, considering I have still been obsessively cleaning when I am stressed... but I still haven't sorted out my CDs and books even though they are getting on my nerves being in such a mess.
