ocd and paperwork

I was doing an online training thing that was supposed to take about 30 minutes. Took me an hour and a half. Like the OCD said, "You can think you've got the best of me, but guess what? I still know how to make some of your schoolwork take three times the length it needs to. I just easily ate up an hour of your time - which re-qualifies you as having clinical OCD just in case you thought you were under-qualified."

How have I gotten along up to this point? I have a great memory (which is useful to the OCD). I can learn things the first time around, often. Otherwise, who knows how long I'd spend on schoolwork. Maybe not that long. My brain still has it's limits (attention-wise and motivation-wise).

I take this exercise dance class that has almost continuous but slow movement. Only they like to talk about things like freedom. Meanwhile, I feel un-free, un-happy, un-whatever positive emotion I'm supposed to feel. Maybe I'm still a rebel (okay, sometimes I am). But still, it's exercise, so it checks something off my to-do list.


  1. I think having a great memory is part of the OCD. It is a blessing and a curse, isn't it?

    Good for you for exercising regularly! I need to do that!

  2. There are two sides of the coin when it comes to OCD.I agree with Lady Delphinium on this one. Good luck on your paperwork, though. I'm sure OCD would be of great help for this one.

    If you don't mind, I would like to ask a favor from you. Can you evaluate this counseling site? I need other people's opinions whether their services could deliver well for our mental needs. This could also be a good resource in your future posts. Thank you so much. Have a nice day.

  3. I have read your blog and I found it very interesting. Life is never easy as what most of us expected. I suggest you have to ask for counseling. This will really help you in fixing some issues in your life. Our team can help you with that. Try to visit the link. Have a nice day.
