…I mean I welcome them! Don't get me wrong. Yeah, send them my way. Ok. All of my poor attempts at humor to the wayside, however, with my OCD I approach compliments with a wildly out of order methodology than your average person. It is not easy when even being liked is difficult.

I don't find that I live that extraordinary of a life outside of a few things I do which I can quite honestly separate from that which is "me." Thus,...

Author's note: First I believe the week begins on Monday. If that invalidates all of my arguments and points attempted to be made, well you may have too strong of a stance on this issue. But. I'll argue it with you. I have done so before.

Monday is hell. The world seems pre-conditioned to dislike Mondays, Bob Geldof and the murderer he was referring to being just a mere and slight observation of a good chunk of what the entire...

I'm walking down the road. Walking my dog. The same way I walk the dog, just about the same time every day. I notice things, my OCD. I notice I feel the need to make sure the dog completes her own rituals—which are decidedly not very OCD-like. But of course rituals, as dogs… well, they don't think like humans. Instinct and all of that. But I find myself counting the number of times she urinates and how much, to make myself fee...

All people have some form of obsession in their lives, it is what drives the human condition. For most people, they can simply rate these things on the standard scale of wants to needs. And with those wants and needs come compulsions to quell these wants and needs in their heads by doing something. Every want and need has a counterpart—something emotional, something tangible, maybe something physical... something to get or do....

I started this article based off a comment from a reader asking about small bits of OCD this person has, and if that qualifies as "OCD." I've decided to expand this to include mental disorder in general. FYI, the answer—you'll find—is that yes, a little OCD is still OCD. There are reasons this matters, and I'll get into that. 

First it seems a bit oxymoronic to say that everyone has at least a little bit of a men...

Complexities brought about by mental health problems have been a constant battle for both patients and medical practitioners over the years on a global scale. More often than not, a silver lining presents itself for a promising course of treatment when the cause is clearly identified to be psychological, biological, environmenta...

To live with a mental illness can be a very lonely and isolating time in a person’s life, a fact I know very well still battling my way to recovery as I write this. We all know the statistics, in the U.K. 1 in 4 are suffering from a mental illness. Sadly, so many are suffering in silence and far too many are losing their lives t...

The 10th of October was World Mental Health Day and I have a confession: I’m exhausted. Not just this day in particular, it’s been creeping up for a while. The difficulty sleeping, the irrational thoughts, the intense headaches. My head feels so heavy that my only response is to lie down, which subsequently results in me not wan...

I want to talk about something slightly outside of Autism and Mental Health today, although very much related to the subject of Hidden Disabilities. I haven’t shared much on my physical conditions, all of which were diagnosed a few years ago, although much like my Autism, its been something I have struggled with under different...
