I never had any problems with a messy environment before. However, a year ago I was involved in a fight that caused me a brain concussion. After this accident, I became focused on being in a clean environment and getting stressed if it was not. I wonder whether I developed some form of OCD.

I am sorry about what you have gone through. I have read that physical trauma can provoke OCD, so it’s possible that you developed it after the accident. Nevertheless, please book a consultation with a doctor. They have better expertise to explain your case.

I wouldn’t say I like going to doctors and mental health specialists sound even worse for me. But I don’t see I can find another solution because literary everyone is telling me to go and get help.

I can understand your frustration. However, you instinctively know that consulting a mental health specialist is for your good. So gather some courage, and you will see that things will start improving after getting a proper treatment plan.

I have already started researching for professionals in my area and will most likely visit one at the beginning of next month. I also put aside a budget for therapy sessions. I am determined to get better this year :slightly_smiling_face:

Your story inspired me today :slight_smile: I am also pleased that Sofie insisted that you seek medical help for the issue you have due to the accident. Please keep us updated with your case.

I am so happy to see your reply. I can’t say I have a significant improvement yet, but I am in the process. Still, I haven’t lost my motivation to improve, which is an excellent thing because I usually can’t stay motivated for a long time.
