1. One of the members of my family has OCD. I try and be as understanding as I can, but it’s not easy. In addition to their own obsessions and compulsions, this family member also gets stressed at any signs of disorganization of others in the family.

    It’s not uncommon for me to come from Bangladesh and find all my possessions resorted, labeled, and put into hermetically sealed bags and boxes like this. The sorting makes sense to the family member whose compulsions drove them to do it, but it often causes headaches for me.

    I’ve had situations where, while doing accounting and finances for my charity work, this family member would take all my receipts (which I sorted into piles) and merge them into one pile and put them all in a sealed bag. Why? Because the disorganization of multiple piles of paper was bothering them enough that it compelled them to “clean”.

    I’ve spent part of today trying to make heads or tails of where some of my possessions are. In addition to paper work gone missing, video equipment I need for vlogs has been disassembled, bagged, sealed, and put away in places that don’t make sense.

    I share this not to humiliate this family member, but in the hopes that others who have loved ones with similar challenges try and make sure they get help. Living a life with obsessions and compulsions is one that can disrupt one’s life and those around them.

  4. Comments like this remind me why it’s so important for people to come out and be strong enough to be open about it.
