To playmykey from beyondmagnificence: Nathan is right in that OCD is much, much more than having things in perfect order. That's a stereotype. Non-sufferers like your mom have a hard time understanding what OCD is, but I am here for you and so is a whole community of fellow OCD sufferers. Your mom wanting to "fix you" is just her being a mom. Maybe it would help to do a few joint therapy sessions with her. I'm out of space here, but drop me a line if you want to talk some more.
There’s nothing I can add to that. You’ve phrased everything absolutely perfectly. Thank you.
Playmykey, can you like this if you see this? I think it’s important just for clarification that you’ve read this!
