I believe that I have OCPD and am seeking support. Please admit me.

My Symptoms:

- It took me quite a while to even acknowledge/admit I have OCPD, or that anything was really wrong with me in the first place.
- I view the world as black & white, right & wrong. I see only facts, logic, and reasoning.
- I am extremely rigid.
- I set up rules to live my life by (and have recently enforced those rules upon others whom are close to me).
- I am paranoid & insecure about certain issues (to a degree where it has affected my social functioning in certain areas).
- I find myself always judging others.
- I find myself to be very arrogant/stubborn.
- I get caught up on very small details in life. Things that really shouldn't matter become monumental obstacles that end up having dire consequences for me and the people around me.
- I make lists, logs, plans, and hold myself and others to very rigid, unrealistic standards.
- I have not been flexible.
- I get severely fixated on things in my life and end up losing sight of what really matters.
- Nearly everything in life has started to stress me out.
- In the past few years, I have become increasingly phobic of germs.
- I have recently fallen into an emotional roller-coaster like cycle, resulting in pretty bad depression at times.
- I am very pessimistic. I do not believe that people are inherently good.
- I am a perfectionist in many areas--to the point that I feel compelled to make others do things the way I feel is right.
- I can be controlling/excessively dominant in my relationships.
- I can't get certain thoughts out of my head--to the point where it affects my ability to focus, concentrate, be happy, enjoy moments in my life, relax etc.

There are probably many more symptoms, but having recognized the above items and reading up on what OCPD is, I feel that I eerily fit the exact description.

I hope to find some general knowledge, comfort, advice, and methods of coping with this disorder from the members on this forum.

Well, I don't have any advice or anything for you....

Can you talk to a person who needs help dealing with an OCPDer?

I'm seeking advice.

Sure, but I've had zero success. I am now getting a divorce after only one year of marriage, and am even failing at the divorce!!!
