I have had OCPD suggested as a possible diagnosis by two separate mental health professionals, however due to restricted access to quality mental health services in my area (rural) I have not yet been given an actual diagnosis.

My partner of 9 years left with my two kids last weekend, and since then has described all of my behaviours over the last two to ten years that made her need to leave, and all of what she described is an almost perfect fit for OCPD, based on the information provided to me by my mental health professionals and what I can find online. I am at peace with her decision, it was the right choice for her and the kids, and it's given me the kick to realise that I am actually sick, and it's no one's fault but my own. She has been trying to get me to seek help for years now, but I couldn't accept that I was the one with the problem.

This has already cost me the most amazing person in the world, and right now I so desperately want to get better so that I can minimise the chances of me hurting people I love and care about in the future. This isn't who I am.

I have made positive steps in the right direction before, but I lack the skills and knowledge as to how to make these changes long term, so I'm scared as to how I can make sure the changes stick this time.

I'm going to need all the help I can get.
