I never see posts about OCPD other than from OCPD-specific blogs that I follow, or from posts that conflate it as being the same as OCD, so here’s some information about the Hell Disorder.
1. OCPD and OCD are separate disorders.
While they share some similar traits, such as hypermorality or intrusive thoughts, they are not the same and should not be treated as if they are. OCD is characterised by obsessive thoughts that lead to anxiety, which is relieved by complusive behavior. OCPD is more of what society tends to refer to as OCD behavior - things like perfectionism, orderliness, and obsession to detail. I’ll get into the symptoms more in a minute. My point is, stop using “OCD/OCPD” in posts that are actually just about OCD.
2. Many people with OCPD wish for its name to be changed to Anankastic Personality Disorder.
If you see Anankastic PD anywhere, it’s talking about OCPD. The reasoning behind this is mainly because of the above point - we want people to easily be able to recognize that OCPD and OCD are not the same. OCPD is not a more “intense” version of OCD - it is a separate disorder with separate symptoms.
3. Symptoms of OCPD can include:
Preoccupation to details, rules, orders, lists, organization, or schedules, sometimes to the extent that the point of the activity is lost
Perfectionism to the point that it interferes with completion of a task (if I can’t do it perfectly, I won’t bother to do it at all)
Excessive devotion to work and productivity
Inability to discard items that are no longer needed
Reluctance to delegate tasks or work with others unless the others adhere exactly to your standard of doing things
Rigid and stubborn about your way of doing things being the “right” way
Needing control over situations or the enviornment
4. There are several subtypes of OCPD.
The way people experience OCPD, as with any disorder, can vary. If you’re interested in subtypes, there is info on them here (link).
2p America: Why does the killer dude have nice clothes and shit? I would rob him if he wouldn’t fucking kill me. And the kid needs to man the fuck up and beat the motherfucker! I wouldn’t let this asshole kick my- Oh shit, he’s sucking his dick!! See, this is why gets treated disrespectfully. The dude is literally is sucking his dick!
2p Canada: Crazy motherfuckers.. I want to feel bad for the scrawny one but he does deserve it.. I guess not to this level. I mean, look at him. He can barely keep himself at a healthy weight! This is some shit America would do. The fucker has a baseball bat and that stupid look on his face, like he knows he’s trouble but pretends to be a good.. *hates Sang Woo a bit for that*
2p England: That poor child! Someone save him! *gets more shocked as he continues reading* *starts crying* I just want him to be free! No honey, don’t crawl! You can do it!
2p China: Yeah, he’s fucked. No way in hell he’s getting out of there alive or without being dragged back inside. *continues reading* Ok, I’ve heard of kissing ass but..sucking dick is new!
2p Russia: *hates it* Why is there so much blood and violence?
2p France: What the fuck is?! Oh shit- *continues reading for boobs* This guy is so bipolar. First he wants to kill the guy then wants him to suck him off then kill him then never wants him to leave him. For fuck’s sake, make up your fucking mind..

He’s hot and crazy but that’s ok as long as he doesn’t hurt the child too badly *reads the part with Ji Eun* Bitch, you better lose the attitude before you end up like him! *continues reading* DID THIS MAN FUCK THIS BITCH IN FRONT OF HIM??? BITCH, I’M SHOOK!!!! (He laughs at the part where she gets a wrench thrown at her) Talk shit, get hit!
2p Prussia: *relates to Yoon Bum on an emotional level* I really hopes he gets out of there.. Or at least fix Sang Woo. I really like the art style and story of this, though it’s a bit nerve-wracking
2p Austria: This is hella sadistic, I love it!! The torture in here is perfect! I’ll have to take notes and use it someday!
“Queens County Assistant District Attorney Rodney McKay is abrasive, burnt-out, and has long ago dropped any pretenses of wanting anything more than to put the scum of the earth behind bars. Detective John Sheppard of the Brooklyn 83 is not too far behind, branded a slacker-cop who chases haphazardly after thugs and murders in a never-ending stream of violence and crime. The two men know of each other through reputation and the rare cross-borough cases that have come their way, but find themselves too busy cleaning up their respective counties to look much closer.
That all changes when the elusive Augustus Kolya and The Gen Family appear to slip up on cross county charges and land McKay and Sheppard working on the same case from two different angles, desperate to take down the corrupt organization and end a decade of mob rule in the outer boroughs. But nothing is ever as easy (or as safe) as it looks and when you start to mess with organized crime, you’re bound to be hurt.
Will the two jaded public servants be able to get along (or get together) long enough to formulate a solid case against vast public corruption and bring justice to the long-standing mob? And will the conniving Chief Kolya let them both get out of this case with their lives?”
not being able to explain why you need someone to do something, getting really angry about it, and then realising an hour later it was just your fucked up brain
people constantly teasing you for getting fixated on one little thing and then dangling said thing in your face just to wind you up
let mental/physical clutter pile up around you because you know once you start you won’t be able to stop but the fact it’s there stresses you out even more and before you know it you’re a sobbing, hyperventilating mess
people thinking ocd is just germophobia and that it’s all about cleanliness
keeping your mouth shut when people say “oh my god i’m so ocd”
keeping your mouth shut when people say “shouldn’t it be called cdo lolololol” like no because then it would be called compulsive disorder obsessive and that’s just fucking annoying stfu
losing all your friends :):):)
giving into the most stupid of compulsions because you are far too exhausted for a panic attack
“we’re all a little bit ocd”
getting really stressed when people say you’re ocd nope you’re not ocd you HAVE ocd (unless the actual disorder itself is reading this in which case i’m terribly sorry also fuck you)
the big bang theory turning the very thing that makes your life a living hell into a running gag lmao he has to knock three times it’s SO FUNNY
“why are you so stressed all the time? just chill out man”
