      I like learning about my health problems from time to time, and I definitely feel I don't qualify for some of them and don't understand how the heckity heck I was diagnosed with them

      I feel the exact same. I’ve had the symptoms since I was super young and I still feel that way today. It’s the anxiety aspect of the ocd. You’re not alone when you feel that way.

      i had trouble with the same, i felt like after i got my diagnosis my compulsions got worse. but i think what it is is just realizing that those symptoms are there and understanding them, which can feel like they suddenly got worse

      I felt the same way. I just kind of told myself that it’s okay to feel like that, but that I still have to be easy on myself 💕
