      Yes! I don't really tell a lot of ppl about the OCD but the few ppl I have tell me that I can't possibly have it bc they “know what it looks like and that's not it.” and or ppl question it if my house gets messy. Which they obviously have no real idea what it is. It's so annoying and frustrated!

        @E_belli LITERALLY!!!! It media never talks about the taboo/intrusive thoughts or the hoarding or the social isolation.

          @Lorelai.Crepsculum yessssssss!! Which intrusive thoughts are a huuuge part of it and sometimes a disturbing part of it. And yes! The isolation that you feel, and feeling like you're the only one who has this issue. Especially when ppl invalidate your experience!

        @Nyxthegoddess same! It annoys me that media portrays OCD as constant perfection and stuff when it's so much more then that.
