How do y'all react when you tell someone you have OCD and they respond "Omg, me too im so ocd!"? Because personally I want to rip my brain out.
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
No same lmaoo
Honestly me too. They make it sound like it's some quirky thing and it's not.
i just awkardly laugh, i dont actually ever think its funny but id rather die than be confrontational lol
It’s so annoying. These types of ignorant people think that ocd is a “perfectionist” medical illness when in reality it’s just your mind telling you to do certain things religiously or something might “happen”. These types of people never understand
I've gotten that quite a few times, especially in school. People who say things like that usually have very little to no education about the disorder and how it effects people
i would run away
Real omgg i hate when people say that like its not quirky or cute its annoying to have, and if your gonna say you have OCD then atleast say it correct💀🤦🏽♀️
Omg yasss I organize my pencils too 🤗 🤗 🤪🤪
I'd just walk away
Or, “oh yeah I have OCB” 🙃 like b$$$& that ain’t the same thing
I hate it. I don’t tell many people because that’s a popular response.
I think I've grown used to the way people respond to OCD because I've heard it so many times, but it's still frustrating when it gets through my mental barriers. I think my biggest issue with talking about OCD is that nobody takes it seriously. I have many conditions and it's one of the few that's nearly managed to kill me - via my intrusive thoughts leading to suicidal ones
I explain what it actually means to have ocd because they may not be educated on what it really means if they are educated though then I'd leave
I hate it when people misuse the term OCD. Like babe I can’t control my thoughts and actions and you just like things to be clean???
it’s frustrating tbh. but i feel like i can’t get into it because then i’m “being sensitive”
mostly ignore them. it annoys me but ive stopped correcting people.
I like to ask who diagnosed them and what type of therapy has been working.
