COVID-19 vs OCD


I thought I would lighten the mood a bit and make this video. All joking aside, both my spouse and I have been diagnosed with OCD. Just like anything else, there are different levels of severity when it comes to this diagnosis. While my wife’s OCD is geared more towards safety and finances, mine is POSTPARTUM OCD and is usually directed cleanliness and at the safety of our twin babes. I could care less if a book is out of place, but if there are visible smudges on the glass coffee table or some one coughs, look out because I just might go crazy.😅😷This also means mine didn’t begin until after the birth of our children. Looking back I can definitely see why I was more susceptible to OCD and I still hope it will resolve, but until that happens I just have to learn how to cope and live with it.

I’ve always tried to be transparent on here in regards to our postpartum journey with depression, but I just don’t feel like I’ve been as open with our OCD experience. This video was poking fun at how my OCD makes me feel, but trust me when I say it’s very real. I don’t want to say how many times I washed my hands today or how many times I have sanitized the house. The rapid thoughts are exhausting. It’s a teeter totter of mental and physical concern and anxiety and if I don’t address a thought or concern it’s like an itch you can’t scratch. It drives me nuts.🤪 With us staying home as much as possible, I find myself having more time to clean and obsess. Especially with the growing number of COVID-19 cases around us.

How are you guys coping with COVID-19?
