Do you think you have OCD?
You’re in the right place.
Have you ever described yourself as “kind of OCD”? You are also in the right place.
We all fall somewhere on an OCD spectrum, from people who describe the moderate amount of anxiety they experience as “kind of OCD” to people who have OCD (and were diagnosed by a professional). Like me, Liz Funk.
Everyone can benefit from learning about OCD and adopting OCD coping mechanisms. These tools can help everyone conserve their valuable mental energy for things that are most important to them.
- We can realize that not everything we think is automatically true. The voice in our head that narrates the world for us isn’t always correct.
- We don’t have to do everything our brains tell us to.
- We don’t need to use our valuable mental energy worrying about things that haven’t happened yet, and probably won’t happen.
(Most of the things we worry about do not happen)
