Notes on Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

I just wanted to share this great video made by my friend Zoe who is on YouTube under the name lifeasyouseeit. In this video she humorously discusses her OCD and gives people a glimpse at what it is like to live with this problem. Of course, she is very humorous in this video, but OCD can be a very debilitating problem. If you or someone you know has this illness, it is best to see a psychiatrist to get medications and therapy that can help alleviate the symptoms. Thank you Zoe for this wonderful video! :)

  1. Wooo….its snowing!! ITS SNOWING!!!! *giggles and runs around like a little kid* *starts to make a snow angel*

  2. haha. you are so funny zoe! thanks for noticing my snow. :)

  3. Great video. I love to see it when someone shows the rest of the world their own mind (or part of it anyway). I would have like it more, though, if she would have spoken at length about what it feels like for her to not do these rituals (if some practical matter gets in the way, for example).

  4. I have OCD and the computer gets to me. I go nutty on certain topics that I’m only mildly interested in. I was recently diagnosed with schizophrenia as well, but they aren’t for sure that i have it or just psychosis.

  5. As an OCD sufferer I fully endorse this video…manages to be funny without totally misrepresenting the topic. :)
