Going through my mind right now, all of a sudden: What if I don’t really have OCD? What if I started this blog and wrote a lot of things about a disorder I don’t even have? Could I be harmfully misleading people? Am I making myself worse? What if I have another disorder? What if I don’t have any disorders?
Obviously this is an obsessive-compulsive moment for me, but it’s kind of hard to acknowledge that when the very doubt that’s plaguing me is WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE OCD.
On a lighter note, here’s a clip of a WordGirl episode featuring the villain “Ms. Question” who reminds me a lot of a villain called “Ms. OCD.” Ms. Question speaks only in questions, and her power is to confuse and trick her enemies with the power of doubt. Seriously.
No, no, no. That money doesn’t go there! If you’re inquiring about a job here, you can’t be messing up important things like where the money goes!
Why do you think I want to work here?
Well, you can’t! Not anymore.
Can’t you see I’m stealing all your money?
A-ha! Taking from the till, are you? You’re fired!
How can you fire me from robbing you?
Good point. After examining the facts, I can tell you’re a creative thinker. Congratulations, you’re back on the team!
