Obsessiv compulsive disorder!… Yes a insanely complex disorder yet somewhat simple. I got a good friend of mine, she is a psychologist, not a therapist of OCD  – just a very good friend, she asked me this: For people with OCD, wouldn’t it be better if it was said CDO for the systematic reason within you brain and reactions towards the diagnosis you got?

Personally i am not freaked out about how the order of the letters are – but lets think about how this would help us not to be misunderstood. For instance im very open about my OCD, often 10-15 minuttes after people meet me the first time i’ve told them about me having my dayli problem. But when you say: I got OCD ( remember im Danish) people often looks very suspicious at me like they heard wrong or missed a word. Im just babbling along and suddenly I tell about the fear of germs and it like they finally understood what it is all about. Reason for this – OECD ( the organisation for econimic co-operation and development) – many people initial thoughts was: What did he get from OECD? some statistics, reports or some lawstuff, why is he babbling about germs?

If there is a crowd, it takes one person to like ask, what do mean – germs? OECD? I go – OH no! no! no! – Im like washing my hands insanely and checking my apartment like 10 times before I leave it – every time!

So CDO would probably help with my minor problem about OCD being spelled OCD. But CDO doesn’t do anything else for my fear of germs and my apartment will probably burn down anyway if i dont do my standarized checking procedure. So from my point of view CDO would not safe my world – but on the other hand – CDO sounds like at organisation that is prepared to take over the world at any time. I got CDO – I do my part. Maybe with a twist – I got CDO with OCD !! Now thats kinda freaky! 😀

If you got OCD or relatives who suffer from OCD or just curious about OCD please feel free to post
