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.

    Honestly me too. They make it sound like it's some quirky thing and it's not.

    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

  • zeroooo

    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???

  • deardiary


    it’s frustrating tbh. but i feel like i can’t get into it because then i’m “being sensitive”

  • ethereal_atlas


    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.
