I never really thought I had anything wrong with me until just recently. I was leaving to go to work and was running really late-but I felt compelled to do things around the house before I left for work. I HAD to fill the napkin holder and put the dishes in the dishwasher and straighten the counter top, etc. etc...even though I was already running late for work.
This happens often-the need to have to do certain unnecessary things. I could have waited to do that when I got home. But it bothered me so bad-so I did it before I left making me even later for work!
After I was in the car (very frustrated at myself, of course), I sat and thought oh my goodness-I think I must be obsessive compulsive!! My fiance' has since agreed with me and says he has noticed that a long time ago. My difficult child is also obsessive compulsive type in addition to his ADHD, etc.
I now feel totally guilty for passing this on to my son. I have never had problems before though, not in school, work, etc...
I feel it is getting worse as I used to be very organized. Lately though, I have become extremely unorganized and this bothers me so much.
I write lists of things that have to be done and if I don't get them done-I get in such a bad/anxious mood.
I need to talk to my dr. about this because I never did before. I truly believe I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and have never been diagnosed with it before.
I feel like I do not have control of my life lately. This is a scary feeling. I can only IMAGINE what my young difficult child has been through over the years and what he is going through now.....
