    • Thank you for this article. I have minor OCD and it bothers me to no end when people misuse the term OCD. Luckily, my OCD doesn’t take over my life and I’m able to sometimes control my rituals, but for those who have it worse off, it ruins their lives and this is why I too find it offensive when people misuse the term. Thanks for the post!

    • Emily,
      I really enjoyed the passion of this post and I liked the points you brought up about the common misconceptions. I have personally fallen into the habit of saying “im OCD about that” and such in the past. I have been working on stopping that because of the people that actually suffer from it. Your points have only grown my understanding of OCD. Thank you.

      I really enjoyed this post because I often hear people say they have OCD as a joke. This post shows how serious OCD really is and that it is not a joking matter.

When you explained that the rituals help those with OCD cope with other, maybe violent thought, it explained it to me a way that it has not been explained before.

    I am satisfied with your post. You explained the facts well and gave excellent examples. It is hard to explain why one believes that humans will move to other planets due to whatever reason it be, with actual facts because of how many sceptics there are in this society.
