I was reading some old post to get to know everyone, and to learn more about Fibro.
I realize that my OCD may be a blessing in disguise. I have such routine in everything I do, and a place for everything, especially at work. I have created a little haven in my bedroom with a recliner and a table by my chair, because it is an area that I can control. I repeat things over and over to myself (and my husband) so nothing is forgotten (although it sometimes still is.) I still forget the names of objects, or even the names of acquaintances at times. I am really good at names in general, so it isn't a huge problem most of the time. I always considered my OCD a curse. I guess I need to change my way of thinking and learn to appreciate it.
Disclaimer: I have not yet been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but it has been suggested by several doctors that they think this is what my diagnosis is. Appointment with Rheumatologist scheduled.
