my life would seriously be so much easier and less stressful if my ocd didn’t make me feel the need to organize everything in a particular way lol it affects so many things that you would never even think of unless you had to experience it yourself 😞 and like i could try to let go of that way of thinking but i don’t want to i like it this way?? it’s just so hard to keep up w/

    @windrider258 omg!! it sucks that you have to deal with this too, but i’m glad someone knows how I feel at least. i can’t stop sometimes either, like once i start picking, everything else goes out the window. i’ll literally sit in bed and do nothing but pick for hours, it’s really bad. to make things worse, i noticed that having a lot of school work triggers it, so instead of working on the homework that stresses me out, i procrastinate with this awful habit. most of the time, i don’t even realize i’m doing it, until i start hurting and/or bleeding of course. my therapist suggested i hold a smooth stone instead when i feel the need to pick, but that wouldn’t be anywhere near as calming or fun. i’m thinking of putting glue on my fingers, but it seems like super glue would do a better job at imitating skin 🤔 lmao lmk if u find anything that helps
