    Jennie wants to share her experience and struggles with OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
    Although people might assume that OCD is all about keeping things neat and tidy, OCD can affect people in different ways. For Jennie, her OCD made her feel like she always had to keep things "even." For example, if Jennie saw two books on a table that weren't perfectly lined up and "even," Jennie would feel the need to rearrange the books and fix their position. However, it wasn't as simple as just moving the books around - Jennie had a whole system for fixing things that wasn't always easy to explain to other people.
    Because of her OCD, Jennie felt like she had to do certain things and complete specific tasks to feel at peace. Although she was right-handed, she decided to go an entire year using her left hand to do things so that her left side was even with her right side. Then, once the year had passed, she felt like she had to use both her right and left hands equally to keep things balanced and fair. It was extremely difficult for her, and it started to really impact her days at school, time with friends and overall daily life.
    Her OCD felt like it was only getting more difficult to handle. She started to count all of her body movements, and she felt like she had to keep track every time she would breathe or blink. She began to feel like someone was listening to her thoughts, and if she didn't think or feel the right thing, she may be punished.
    Finally, Jennie decided to talk to her parents and explain how she was feeling. They brought her to a counselling, and a counselor was really able to help her. Now, Jennie doesn't feel so overwhelmed by her disorder. Jennie wants other people to know how important it is to NOT suffer in silence, and she hopes her story can help someone who may also be struggling with OCD.

    Oh crap, I always think someone is listening to my thoughts and at random times I scream really loudly in my head and look around to see if anyone jumped, I also used to do everything evenly (I don’t do that as much any more thankfully)

    I like doing stuff like shrug over and over again and stuff and if I do one extra in one shoulder it would bother me slightly that they're not even and I'd have to shrug the other one twice to feel like it's complete. I hope this isn't bad ;-;

    This doesn’t even go into intrusive thoughts. I suffer with a subset called POCD and it’s hell to be in my own head sometimes. Living with OCD is rough. Don’t try to handle it alone, support from others will go a very long way to help.

    I don’t have medically diagnosed or self diagnosed OCD, but uneven things tick me off, like my binder and agenda have a size difference and they’re never lined up. Gets annoying.

    I have OCD too, and it really sucks. I especially *hate* it when people say they have OCD and I believe them. Mine isn't this severe but a example is if i step on a crack on the pavement or something I need to go down to the beginning of the road and start again. Praying 🙏 for you!

    Every time when someone touches my game and leave the room, and leaves the room I always clean it even when they are clean. Does that count as OCD.

    I have to keep things straight. And whenever I go into a store and one thing isn't with the right place. (Like a flamingo pin isn't with the other flamingo pin, but with the elephant pins) I would have to put the flamingo pin back with the others. That's my OCD
