Jennie wants to share her experience and struggles with OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Although people might assume that OCD is all about keeping things neat and tidy, OCD can affect people in different ways. For Jennie, her OCD made her feel like she always had to keep things "even." For example, if Jennie saw two books on a table that weren't perfectly lined up and "even," Jennie would feel the need to rearrange the books and fix their position. However, it wasn't as simple as just moving the books around - Jennie had a whole system for fixing things that wasn't always easy to explain to other people.
Because of her OCD, Jennie felt like she had to do certain things and complete specific tasks to feel at peace. Although she was right-handed, she decided to go an entire year using her left hand to do things so that her left side was even with her right side. Then, once the year had passed, she felt like she had to use both her right and left hands equally to keep things balanced and fair. It was extremely difficult for her, and it started to really impact her days at school, time with friends and overall daily life.
Her OCD felt like it was only getting more difficult to handle. She started to count all of her body movements, and she felt like she had to keep track every time she would breathe or blink. She began to feel like someone was listening to her thoughts, and if she didn't think or feel the right thing, she may be punished.
Finally, Jennie decided to talk to her parents and explain how she was feeling. They brought her to a counselling, and a counselor was really able to help her. Now, Jennie doesn't feel so overwhelmed by her disorder. Jennie wants other people to know how important it is to NOT suffer in silence, and she hopes her story can help someone who may also be struggling with OCD.

    I have OCD too and that’s just the start of it, OCD for me started with repetitive behaviors like stepping in and out of the car a few times and tapping the door handle before leaving then it turned into stomachs aches and I used to get the thoughts that something bad was going to happen when I thought/did something wrong, which actually wasn’t wrong it was just wrong to my OCD and now I’m at panic attacks and stomach aches but I’m seeing somebody about it and she’s been very helpful. I used to see somebody that helped me tremendously. Tsk care of yourself, and if you think you have OCD catch it early on and get help before it gets bad. 💖😘❤️😍

    I'm in band, and maybe this is the reason why, but whenever I walk, I count my steps. 1, 2, 3, 4. 2, 2, 3, 4. 3, 2, 3, 4. Even when I sprint, I do this. When I stretch, I have to end on the four. Another thing is, I have to eat and even amount of food servings. I usually eat in pairs, so when it's not, I get really pissed off. I'm not saying I have OCD. If I were to have something, it would be OCD tendencies.

    Fun fact.. This is actually how I feel everyday.. :/ but I am too scared too say it and I don't know how I can even say it.. :( Sometimes being on my phone makes me forget it but NOT, I start literally counting the times I type, correcting everything when they are already written correctly.. It is hard not being able to say something like this..
