If people tend to be OC does anxiety go with it. My daughter has said for years I'm like that and I needed to be on something. I figured it was just her being a brat with her mouth. My personality is one that I don't like things to stray too much off course and am very organized.

To the best od my knowledge, OCD is considered a Anxiety Disorder.

Thanks

Yeah I started to become very obsessive-compulsive in 5th grade, and it seems that after that is when my anxiety started to kick in.
I’m lonely; gotta look for a party
And dance with somebody tonight
Cuz I’m lonely; I feel empty inside
Can’t you make me feel alive?

I am Severe OCD
I have had panic and anxiety for over 30 yrs

I have to have all things balanced and the house spotless
Lock doors and check em 5 times every time I go out
or to bed
Make my bed as soon as I get out of it
**If its sheet changing days....sheets and pillow cases are already on my dresser

CANNOT handle a dish in the sink........clean nor dirty

I am going bonkers
The house doesnt get messy says daughter
BUT in my head it is

I see she is also picking up my habits which is a good thing to a point
Teens should have messy ( a bit anyways lol) room

Yep I have to say a big YES on this one

IMHO OCD and anxiety disorder go hand in hand. After my first attacks I got quite severe OCD and manifested lots of rituals and obsessive thought patterns. It has faded for me over the years now with therapy and controlled effort.

I still can't handle dishes in the sink, or water on the sink (with you on that one Lyn) but I've stopped counting telegraph poles and taking my own sanitised mugs to cafes..talk about a mood killer! lol.
