As the only person diagnosed with OCD in my family, I thought once the virus spread to my county I would be terrified. I pictured myself spraying everything and afraid to leave the house, but actually I’m fine.
I didn’t expect to be so calm about the whole situation, but I am. My parents on the other hand are scared to leave the house. The worst part is that they keep with with every piece of news about the pandemic.
I only get news if its on YouTube or Twitter. If I’m not looking at those two platforms, what is a Coronavirus?
What I’m really proud of is actually feeling less OCD and more free. I am happy to not be bound to my mental illness. Especially during this time of panic and worry.
Now I am still being safe and social distancing. I am just not scared of getting sick.
