Good day, I was diagnosed in 2012 with OCPD. It took me a while to agree with the provider in which I was seeing. It has taken many years to help my marriage survive due to the OCPD. My poor children have also had to suffer through it with me.
The easiest way to explain how I know I have OCPD is that I a perfectionist. That word doesn't even feel like it is enough. People joke about my "issues", and it frustrates my poor husband to no end. When discussing everything- I sometimes feel silly because I have finally gotten to the point where I recognize I have an issue, and I know that the ways I believe things should be differs from other people. That just because it is not my way does not make it wrong. I still get frustrated and have anxiety attacks with some situations- but my husband can finally help me with the cleaning of our house. Right now I am trying to figure out how to train folks at work while having OCPD. I need to find a way to not lose my patience. Just because I excel at my job, and I learn the ins and outs a lot more quickly than others- because I obsess over it all until I have it "perfect" doesn't mean everyone else is that way. I need to learn to delegate and not try and do everything so it is done "properly" and I don't have to worry about going back a fixing it.
I am in a clinic, things move, processes change, new employees come and go- however working in a civilian facility compared to a military facility has been a hard process to get through.
