It actually makes me go into a little rage if DP has done dishes and doesn't rinse the sink out afterwards.

Even the tiniest little bit of bubbles left makes me angry, think I'm a little bit ocd actually haha.

Surely I'm not alone?

Ocd isn't funny.


mummytofourbabies Sun 07-Aug-16 17:15:09

Where in there did I say ocd is funny?

mrsfuzzy Sun 07-Aug-16 17:15:52

what the hell is my guinea pig, bubbles, doing in your sink ???? bring her straight back ! grin

mummytofourbabies Sun 07-Aug-16 17:16:38

Ah how cute is that name for a Guinea pig smile
Would love one of those but think my dog would eat it grin

"Think I'm a little bit ocd actually haha"

mrsfuzzy Sun 07-Aug-16 17:32:18

mummy your dog wouldn't want to eat her, she's long coated and reminds me of donald trumps hair on legs [no, seriously] sometimes it's difficult to know which end is which unless you offer a carrot to one end and it doesn't respond.

That doesn't say ocd is funny though,
That is me laughing at my own ways..not in any way at anyone else who has ocd.

Honestly there's always one, who picks through something you post to try and look for things that aren't there.

My DH does this in both bath and sink. Drives me mad.

UnusualPolarBear Sun 07-Aug-16 17:42:26

I didn't pick through it, it jumped out at me. Fine, you didn't mean it like that, so I'll leave it. Just sick of people making a joke of ocd, when it's really, really not one.

Ignore, there's always one.

Love the name bubbles for a Guinea pig! DH does the same too!

TBF there are probably things you do that rub him up the wrong way. A bit of give-and-take, maybe? None of us is perfect, etc etc.

mummytofourbabies Sun 07-Aug-16 18:32:07

Oh wow..this was meant as a lighthearted thread.

In no way have I laughed at people with ocd, and my post certainly didn't imply that, I was laughing at myself.

Secondly I have not said I'm perfect, I'm far from it, it was a joke.

People maybe need to lighten up a bit.

ilovesooty Sun 07-Aug-16 18:36:15

People don't need to "lighten up"
People need to stop saying things like "a little bit OCD" (with or without the ha ha)

mummytofourbabies Sun 07-Aug-16 18:38:34

But I am a little bit ocd.
That was a fact
I added the haha because I choose to look at it like that and not in a serious way which is my decision.

I wasn't laughing at people with ocd as I know it can be quite extreme in some people just happens to not be that extreme with me.

Honestly go have a drink or something. wine

ilovesooty Sun 07-Aug-16 18:47:08

You obviously don't get it.

Educate yourself.

mummytofourbabies Sun 07-Aug-16 18:50:02

I think you need to stop you know nothing about me except one thing I've said about bubbles in my sink.
I will not justify myself to a complete stranger.
you can't tell me whether I do or don't have ocd based on one post I've put on here.
Thank you though very informative.

UnusualPolarBear Sun 07-Aug-16 19:12:00

To be fair to Ilovesooty, I've never met someone who actually has ocd or knows anything about how damaging it can be who would say 'I'm a little bit ocd'.

For a start, a person isn't ocd , a person has it...

SalemSaberhagen Sun 07-Aug-16 19:15:29

You also said that you think you are a little bit OCD. Think is not fact.

TheGruffaloMother Sun 07-Aug-16 19:15:54

What the fuck does 'a little bit' OCD mean?? You were diagnosed with OCD but now you're asking if it's unreasonable to have this minor thing that irritates you?

BuonoEstente Sun 07-Aug-16 19:17:04

Actual lol at "educate yourself". I think most people know how devastating genuine ocd can be and the op obviously didn't mean to cause any offence.

TheGruffaloMother Sun 07-Aug-16 19:17:13

But why would you ask if you're BU if the behaviour is actually part of OCD?

mummytofourbabies Sun 07-Aug-16 19:18:02

Ok guys not even gonna argue with none of u anymore.

This thread wasn't "do I or don't I have ocd"

So I refuse to discuss that matter any further.

Thanks though, nice to know you all care so much grin

That's seriously fucking offensive to me someone with OCD. And I don't need to lighten up or have a drink thanks.
