It’s Not A Problem! (Locked Away In This Prison)

Prompt 26 – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

It’s Not A Problem, I Swear (Locked Away In This Prison)

It needs to be just right! It must be right! That is all my thoughts scream at me. No matter what I’m doing. I could be falling down a flight of stairs and that’s all I’ll be concerned about – falling perfectly. Why does it have to be right? I wish that just for a minute I could turn my brain off, and not have to hear it scold me for leaving something crooked. I hate getting up in the mornings. I hate going to work. They all stare at me. It’s like I’m a zoo animal! Is fixing up my desk such a big deal? They do it on purpose. When I leave, I know they go through and mess everything up. That’s why I need to fix it. And shopping! Oh, shopping is much worse. The public is such a cruel place to be. But I’m human, just like them! There’s nothing wrong! I’m just a bit more…conscientious about, well, everything. I swear it’s not a problem. Sometimes, I may feel a little trapped, but don’t we all. There isn’t anything wrong. Nothing is wrong…

I don’t actually know what OCD is like, so if I got it wrong, I’m sorry. This is short, and it feels more like a rant than anything. I hope to come back to this and to fix it up at some point during the future. What do you think?

    The “stuff being crooked” is definitely OCD. Though I must say, I lot of this sounds much more like having an anxiety disorder (trust me).

      Thanks for the comment and for letting me know about the writing. I’ll probably go back and edit this in my spare time to make it fit with OCD.

      • Nicholas Jae says:

        One of my own little quirks is making sure I take an equal amount of steps in the sunlight and in the shade when I’m walking around. Been doing it for years, can never stop counting my footsteps.

      • Ivie says:

        That’s cool. I may need to use that in a writing. If of course, you don’t mind. Can you do it without much thought now or do you always need to think about it?

Talk to me baby!
