Truth be said, there just may be no greater fight for an individual person than that of a fight with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. There are no myths about what it really does to the sufferer for me to examine. Because, certainly for the sufferer, it is a matter, above all else, of attempting to ride out one of the most mentally taxing storms imaginable. A fright of the mind which has done the sufferer in- entirely mixing them up and, therefore, hugely discombobulating their sense of natural intelligence. The nightmare at hand can only ever be sensationalised on the widescreen because, quite honestly, what goes on inside of said sufferer’s brain AND mind with OCD is… much too putridly disgusting and frightfully engrossing for another person to ever actually experience first-person. All-engrossed, let’s say. There really is no ‘coping’ with this mental diagnosis. The sufferer NEEDS to go ALL THE WAY CLEAR- clear of the discombobulation of brain, clear of the miscalculation that is occurring within their mutilated brain. You can’t compare or quantify it against anything else, really. It’s… invisible for others to see it and for them to ever get to wholly understand, let alone for the sufferer: who is just as unable to understand the wildness of this particular imbalance of brain. But the dishevelled and wrecking-ball landscape it progresses to contribute to creating inside of the sufferer’s mind is… … quite frankly… as I said already, putridly disgusting and even at its least chaotic. This is a fight which no sufferer deserves and, to be perfectly honest about the possibilities of a necessary out-and-out recovery, chances are extremely slim. You’ve been tasked with literally having no other choice than to let a mountain of imbalanced miscalculations of brain do its damnedest to you. It’s quite akin to expecting… well, let’s just say that a sufferer of chronic OCD is as blind-in-the-mind as to what they might need to do to progress and process things in a natural and normal manner going forward, as a 1st year Med. student would be equally unable to apply their level of basic-so-far skills to suddenly carrying-out a Grade-A life-saving neurosurgery operation. What’s more, if they fail the outcome will be catastrophic. The chances of out-and-out success are… not good. That’s the truth of this particular matter. It doesn’t take a genius to live a day-to-day life, however, as it turns out, it may just take a genius of sorts to recover from or live with OCD. Personally? Of course I choose the prior of those two choices- RECOVERY. No brain can be that grossly entangled and not end up with a brand new and strengthened sense of survival mode. No person’s brain AND MIND can go to THAT many places of mental reckoning without having a WAY, WAY, WAAAY deeper understanding of things in general.
