When I was 23, I was diagnosed with OCD and I went to therapy. During that therapy, I spoke to the doctor about certain things. that I did like when I was doing a task it had to be done just right. Not perfectly, but just right, according to my mind.
And he was like, "Yeah, I think you have obsessive compulsive disorder."
To be honest, when I got diagnosed, I was like, "Oh, that explains a lot." I felt validated. I had to do a little bit more work, but it was doable. I just had to know what I had to work on.
