Delving deeper

The more I look into Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, the more things make sense in terms of my mental issues.  I suffered a mild concussion when I was a small child, this could have been the moment the disorder was started.  Normally it’s not a crippling disorder and most people with it live totally normal lives.  I believe that certain traumatic circumstances or periods of extreme stress can trigger the effects.  Also I have come to believe from personal experience that certain medications could also trigger it.  The depression I struggled with for so long led me to think that OCD was not real, that I had no problems.  When the result of being triggered becomes a problem is when the desired repetition of actions is instant gratification related, such as gambling or binge spending.  This has cost me dearly, but I should be able to monitor my spending habits better now.

This blog has been my connection to a decent number of people whom also suffer from OCD.  I hope that my explanations and workthroughs/arounds can help others.  It might not be curable yet, but it is manageable.  You are not a slave your disorder and neither am I.  Stay tuned ’til next time.  Peace to you and yours.
