I grew up with a mom with OCD. She was extremely fussy and had rituals for almost everything. From leaving a drawer ajar 1/8 of an inch to not replacing some sewing thread back to the correct spindle for that "color" in the sewing box, I was yelled at constantly. Both me and my sister have problems being in a home environment. I have ended up being an extreme people pleaser, and really don`t like to have many people around me because I am always afraid that I have done something wrong. I can not tell you how hard it is to try to keep up with all of those rituals if you don`t have OCD. Our families never get together. Both me and my sister are too nervous to have our mom in our homes because she will start fing things wrong. So no holidays, no family get togethers,nothing. I told my mom how this has effected me and it doesn`t seem to phase her, she is so focussed on her own OCD and her own comfort needs.
