wittyblather asked: Hello. :) I just wanted to say that I read your post about OCD. Pure O really is the worst. I'm suffering from a version of it myself, and you're right - it's horrifying. I've seen the notion of "I'd trade it for any other theme" so many times I could make a decent drinking game out of it, haha. Not to trivialize it, though. I know that the disease can make its sufferers feel like horrid people. I guess I didn't have a whole lot to say. Just wanted to reach out as a fellow OCDer. Don't give up!

Thanks for the message! It’s always nice to talk to someone who has gone through it - not that I’d wish it upon anyone, but when there are other people out there suffering the same way, it’s nice to share war stories and keep each other sane, haha. You’re right, I’d say pretty much anything Pure O could reach the “I’d trade it for anything” level. I’ve experienced HOCD (*TRIGGER WARNING* - I much, much later happily realized I am bisexual. No anxiety involved, completely different) and ROCD myself, and consider them both the most horrifying because of the way they can undermine relationships at the most fundamental level. But as we know, any obsession can destroy one’s life. An OCD drinking game? Now THAT I’d get into! And probably become a raging alcoholic. 

Thanks a lot for your response though, and if you’re interested I’d love to keep in touch. I know only one other person suffering from OCD, and as great a friend as he is, A) he doesn’t suffer from Pure O and B) I feel bad discussing my symptoms with him because I don’t want to introduce any new obsessions to him. 

Anyway, I’m feeling a fair bit better as of yesterday evening and this morning! I’m terrified to go back to the therapist, now that I’ve got a better handle on myself I don’t want to bring back all those bad feelings…but I know it needs to be done.

“Julie D’Aubigny was a 17th-century bisexual French opera singer and fencing master who killed or wounded at least ten men in life-or-death duels, performed nightly shows on the biggest and most highly-respected opera stage in the world, and once took the Holy Orders just so that she could sneak into a convent and bang a nun. If nothing in that sentence at least marginally interests you, I have no idea why you’re visiting this website.”

Anonymous asked: Do you have anyone you can talk to at least? I know you don't want to tell Chels, but would it help to just have someone to rant/vent to?

I got an appointment with my old therapist for Monday. I did actually tell her though. It didn’t go well at first, but fortunately she’s an extremely understanding and compassionate person and told me she wants to learn more about my disorder and how she can help. How lucky am I? I’m feeling a bit better today. No one to really talk to until Monday, but I have a little bit more hope, and that’s the main thing I need.

Thanks for the consideration, btw, anon.
