Jennie wants to share her experience and struggles with OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Although people might assume that OCD is all about keeping things neat and tidy, OCD can affect people in different ways. For Jennie, her OCD made her feel like she always had to keep things "even." For example, if Jennie saw two books on a table that weren't perfectly lined up and "even," Jennie would feel the need to rearrange the books and fix their position. However, it wasn't as simple as just moving the books around - Jennie had a whole system for fixing things that wasn't always easy to explain to other people.
Because of her OCD, Jennie felt like she had to do certain things and complete specific tasks to feel at peace. Although she was right-handed, she decided to go an entire year using her left hand to do things so that her left side was even with her right side. Then, once the year had passed, she felt like she had to use both her right and left hands equally to keep things balanced and fair. It was extremely difficult for her, and it started to really impact her days at school, time with friends and overall daily life.
Her OCD felt like it was only getting more difficult to handle. She started to count all of her body movements, and she felt like she had to keep track every time she would breathe or blink. She began to feel like someone was listening to her thoughts, and if she didn't think or feel the right thing, she may be punished.
Finally, Jennie decided to talk to her parents and explain how she was feeling. They brought her to a counselling, and a counselor was really able to help her. Now, Jennie doesn't feel so overwhelmed by her disorder. Jennie wants other people to know how important it is to NOT suffer in silence, and she hopes her story can help someone who may also be struggling with OCD.

I kinda do the same thing for example, I have to start eating on the right side of my mouth and end with my left side, or like if I’m typing and make a mistake with one letter, I have to delete the whole word or else the other letters feel “old” or something like that.

I've been thinking that i have OCD for years. My worst problem is clicking on my phone scree. When i watch a youtube video i have to pause the video like 5 times before i can start watching. It's a bit annoying but it's not making my life harder so i never went to get diagnosed.
