So, I thought this would be interesting. Anyone diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder? The reason I'm asking is that if someone has OCD/OCPD, they always have a funny story or two to tell.
I have OCPD. I have avoided cracks in the sidewalk since I was 6 or so, so that means about 14 years.
One time my teacher erased the board but missed a teeny tiny spot. All I could do the entire lecture was stare at it. Finally I stood up and pretended to throw away some trash and wiped it off with my hand. The teacher saw me and thought I was trying to be funny, so he yelled at me and sent me out of the room. I didn't tell him I have OCPD, because I don't really see it as a good excuse, honestly. Still, when I think about it now it is a pretty funny story.
