Game Designer Jason L. Blair Writes About Dealing With OCD
Over on his blog, “I Have My Eye On You,” game designer Jason L. Blair has some thoughts to share about the true nature of OCD:
“I was exhausted. The more people I was around, the more energy I had to put into pretending I was fine. I couldn’t let the mask slip. I couldn’t let on that I was losing my mind. That I was under constant torture and just as constant pressure to act like everything was…
some of this sounds distressingly familiar. when I learned about OCD in school, I remember learning about hand-washing and the compulsion to check on things…not so much about unwanted, intrusive thoughts, which I’ve got in spades. I worry about other people who read this and think, “but he was so strong to have fought this off, and I’m not him”…but you’re more like him than you think. you’ve got that light inside you, too.
oh my god this guy messaged me on okcupid and he has a “don’t message me if” section and
is there anyone on the planet who meets these qualifications?
nobody told me being able to feel my ribs all the time would be so fucking WEIRD
