genuinely curious if there's other people that experience the same thing as me. So I have diagnosed OCD and severe generalized anxiety, I get EXTREMELY overwhelmed at even the thought of cleaning my spaces my OCD comes with hoarding tendencies so cleaning comes with the thought of letting things go and I generally can't do it on my own. whenever this happens I always feel so useless like I can't even do something so simple on my own

      Yes I get overwhelmed too sometimes because I have OCD, General Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar 1 Disorder, and other things. When my depression from my Bipolar takes over, I don't clean like I normally do so then when I'm feeling better, looking at everything and wondering how I'm going to get it all clean is overwhelming but I like to stay organized because of my OCD so I start off with small projects first. Then I pace myself with the bigger projects. Sometimes it takes a few days for the bigger projects. I forgive myself for not being able to do things the way others do but I find my own system.

      Yes, I constantly just end up breaking down and crying because it gets me so anxious and overwhelmed

      Yes yes!! It's so difficult and overwhelming, that it makes me avoid it altogether, especially since I get fatigued easily. It's either I do it all or don't to it, and I feel like such a failure asking for help

      I also have OCD and server generalized anxiety disorder. I as well get extremely overwhelmed and angry sometimes when my house is a mess but the thing with me is I have to clean it , every single room top to bottom. Like last night I found myself cleaning untill about 1am
