A really big pet peeve of mine is when people equate being a perfectionist and liking things neat/tidy with being OCD.
Because Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a legit mental illness. The reason people have the obsessive because is because of legit fears.
Like they think if they don’t do the certain things then something horrible will happen.
One part of OCD is needing things in an order, but not always.
I have a suuuper mild form of it, because I have to eat things in a certain pattern, I constantly count things, words/phrases get stuck in my head forever, and like I just have a lot of “things” (ask my husband) where if they don’t get done a certain way or if I can’t do things a certain way I get like really stressed out.
But I’m not going to say that I have OCD because there’s not that feeling of fear.

I SCREAMED WHEN I FOUND THIS THANK YOU
Parents out there:
If your kid came to you and said they failed some of their classes in college because being on campus gave them serious anxiety stemming from 2 multiple-rape incidents, what would you say? How would you handle that?
I went through similar. I couldn’t handle being on campus because I was terrified of seeing someone. I stopped attending classes. I failed out of college because I couldn’t handle the panic/anxiety attacks.
When I told my mom, she forced me to go to this bullshit “Rape Crisis” meeting.
I mean, I appreciate the gesture, but I needed help with the depression I’d had for years, and the lady I talk to just kept telling me I was wrong whenever I said anything.
Hopefully your parents will understand, and be helpful.
I made both a Gaia thread (the Guilds cost 20,000 gold and I have like 200 and an IMVU group for the Zodiac Roleplay! They’re both kind of High School themed-ish, but your characters don’t have to be in High School, as it also can involve like the whole town and stuff.
I just figured teen/High School is usually the easiest.
If you have any suggestions about anything I should add/change, or just any questions at all, let me know!

I’ll check up on in often, but you should also let me know when/if you make an account/join them! :3
