Many people think of OCD as someone being obsessed with having things a certain way.
For me at least, it goes much deeper and has been the ruination of several great friendships in my life of which can never be replaced and at least thus far never repaired.
I’m going to read this.
While this last experience with this issue for me was the most painful by far, and I did learn the most from it about myself I ever learned I fear one day I may fall victim to it again thus thrusting yet another unsuspecting great person into it.
My heart aches when I think of the damage I did this time.
I’ve heard horrible things about the fallout from my last episode and while very little of it have I been able to confirm I hope to never do this ever again in my life.
I’m in tears as I type and just thinking of my behavior and the horror I caused for someone who did nothing to deserve it causes me to feel that old self-loathing yet again.
It has taken me years to get so that I do not self-injure when I think of it.
Many people have been hurt due to my sickness, but this past time was by far the greatest loss I have ever had.
Between the things I did to a person who helped me more than anyone has ever done before in my life, and the surrounding fall-out that caused my behavior to be such that my daughter made what had to be for her a painful decision to simply walk out of my life and so far, never to return I cannot even put into words the disgust I feel toward myself.
That all having been said I hope this book is worth its salt.
I’ve heard of it in other places, and so now am going to read.
Talk soon and if you know of someone who has this disorder or has been affected by someone else’s behavior I encourage you to share.
