Dating someone with anxiety ocd disorder

opinion

Asking you the same questions multiple times. As someone with OCD, one of my favorite things is repetitiveness. Car crashes, choking, anaphylaxishome invasions, illness, my child dying, mass shootings.

Anything that can provoke fear in people, my anxiety exaggerates and thrives on. Most of the time they come out of nowhere. The room starts to spin, my face turns white, my heart races, my body shakes and they are often accompanied with vomiting. I have anxiety induced trust issues in general.

What if the food makes me sick? What if I hate it? I probably trust myself the least of anyone. I need to know my fears are taken seriously and that I have a calm and steady force on my side. I want to be carefree and easy going. I struggle with things many people find hard to understand. Even I have a hard time understanding myself sometimes. I know I have issues I need to work on, and I continue to make improvements all the time.

This is who I am at the end of the day.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD, is...
