For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.

Having OCD is like having your brain under siege by every thought and worry you’ve ever had.
When I say OCD I mean the real bastard, not simply liking that the throw pillows be fluffed a certain way. I’m referring to the cold sweats, anxiety, shaking, weird antics, that obsession with faucets and turning off ovens, self-harming, and the circle of thoughts that won’t leave you alone no matter what you do.
You space out (a lot), trying to deal with all of the clutter and only end up frustrating everyone around you because they ‘can’t read you’.
Little do people know, most of the time you frustrate the hell out of yourself because you just want quiet in your head.
I can’t remember the last quiet moment I had; it has been that long.
-Grace Nicole Kobylinski
I have a couple of students and a 5 year old niece with OCD. The real thing, not just “clean freaks” and it pisses me off when people use “OCD” as an adjective.
To anyone who does that, there are so many words in the dictionary to describe you. Please, don’t use a medical term so lightly.
