    Hm... I spoke to trusted friends. If not that, I justified how there are billions of people on this Earth, trillions of stars combusting somewhere, and only one of me so naturally I'm biased. Stuff like that.

    Very few people know I have OCD, so I told very few people. I think those I told don't understand, but they do try. I don't think anyone can truly understand unless they've been there. Unfortunately...

    I have told a few people. No one I have told has been especially surprised. So I guess I was the most surprised by my diagnosis- not those who dealt with my issues. It has opened up communication for me with a few people

    I haven’t had the experience of no one understanding, more like they don’t take it serious or they think it’s “normal” I feel like I just get invalidated :/
