Good morning. I am a 37yo guy who just yesterday was diagnosed with OCPD. This diagnosis came after 14 years of being misdiagnosed and still suffering the effects of this disorder. I would like to join and see what has worked for others, as well as, see if anyone else suffers from another disorder that I have.

Thank you.

Congratulations and welcome aboard! If I were you, I'd try mindful meditation. It's done wonders for me. I was so relieved when I finally understood why I thought so different than everyone else, and that it was ok. My biggest leap forward came after absorbing many years of buddhist ideas, when I accepted that a thought was just a thought. I didn't have to act on it, just recognize it for what it was, and be confident that more will be coming, none better or worse than any others. Eventually the thoughts seemed to slow down steadily, and oh what a relief it is. Oh yeah, and almost no one (if anyone) knows what your internal rules are or if you follow or break them. And no one worth having in your life cares if you follow or break them. So we can go easy on ourselves. If you are a facebook user, there is an OCPD Group that is much more active than this group with members from all over the globe.
