Yes just to say to everyone I have ever known:
Stop , ok stop it,
stop saying “oh I’m so OCD about this” that’s not how it works, OCD is NOT an adjective
Stop making fun of me , for my OCD, I cant help it, its not like I choose to have OCD
Stop treating my OCD like a joke, its not, its a nightmare

OCD isn’t a choice its a serious disease, so seriously people , educate yourselves and think
That’s all I’ve got to say
Sorry for the ramble
I’m just fed IP of people doing this and I’m to polite to tell them to stop

That is very true! We were just trying to expel the stigma that mental illness drugs are terrible in general and that they don’t help people. It is true that they don’t help everyone but they do help a lot of people.
