While my mum has the best intentions suggesting I could move to France for a year, which would improve my career prospects, I don’t think I could cope with my mental illness. All the extra stress of making new friends, finding somewhere to live,all the formalities like insurance and permits would be too much. I love to travel, but travelling somewhere and living there are completely different. I wouldn’t have my cat, sounds silly but he’s like a therapy animal to me, even though not officially, not having my familiar ballet school, friends or work, having to navigate a different health system…

Anyway, going on another bike ride for my last day!

mentalhealthkitten:

So I went on a date the other day, and it was a lovely decent short date otherwise, but when I admitted to having OCD and Bipolar (because it’s important for any potential match to know), he went, “Oh, everyone’s got a little over those.” Then he went on to say how he has OCD because he likes clean surfaces and he likes his guitar properly tuned. 

No.

Oh god, this always worries me when I like someone

actuallyobsessive:

If you don’t have OCD, you might find our rituals kind of annoying. 

However, your level of irritation doesn’t even compare to what we go through. If you think being around a person with OCD is frustrating, just remember this: you can ignore us or walk out of the room when our rituals “annoy” you, but we can’t do that. We have to live with it. You’re not the victim here.
