I am a new member, as of today, 9/9/13. I am still unfamiliar with the site, so please bear with me as I traverse this unfamiliar ground. First, is there a spell checker? I find myself rereading everything I type and checking for errors.

If you haven't already concluded, I have OCPD. This is my first attempt to reach out in a group setting as I tend to avoid group settings most of the time. I am hoping, desperately, that I may be able to connect with individuals who understand the thoughts and way of doing things that are my mantras. I have found that as I age, it worsens. This scares me.

I used to think having OCPD was a gift--straight A's, perfectionism, tidy, clean, organized, type-A personality, high achiever, driven, motivated--all words that apply to me. However, there is a polar opposite to all of these--constant feeling of failure, substandard, never good enough, never perfect, double-checking, doubt, inadequate--all the feelings I feel but never express.

I am losing my connection with my young daughter because I am so uncomfortable with affection and emotion. I am losing the love of my life because my expectations are so high for myself and him; the idea of being alone sounds so nice, yet at the same time he makes me smile. I have no idea how to relax. I am simply floundering and tears fall down my face in my solitary room where no one can see me cry because heaven forbid anyone should know what a failure I feel like for not being able to control my emotions, my relationships, my feelings, everything.

P.S. My Cammer score is 86.

Hi Ariah,

Welcome. You may want to register with the OCPD-only board. This board is open for all, but is probably not the best place for you right now, as it tends to focus on describing the pain and difficulties non's experienc ein dealing with an OCPD partner or parent.

OCPD is no gift. You don't function healthily under it's grip, regardless of any aspect of this Disorder that can be isolated and painted in a favorable light.

Zero traffic jams would be an aspect of nuclear armageddon, but I can't imagine a case where pointing that out as a gift has any relevance whatsoever. It merely serves as ironic evidence of the influence of OCPD.

OCPD may be a gift, but it´s different. It is a matter of perspective. Blessing and curse. Prison and freedom. Both.
