Should I say anything?

Recommended Posts

A friend who I know quite well and is very aware of my OCD posted on Facebook last week a misspelt sign, with the comment:

Life must be hell for a dyslexic proofreader with OCD!

Should I say anything to him about it?

It's up to you. I almost always post about those things, calmly exolaining that it is a misrepresentation of an awful mental disorder.

Thanks, I want to but this friend is a bit of a joker and I’m sure he’ll tell me I don’t have a sense of humour.

Also, I have another friend who keeps saying ‘my OCD means I have to have my inboxes in alphabetical order.’ I’m sure he doesn’t actually have OCD. I find that as annoying. You wouldn’t have someone say ‘oh my friend is leaving, my BPD is upset about that’ if they didn’t have BPD, so why do people do it with OCD? It’s almost like me saying ‘my head hurts, must be my brain tumour!’ Or something like that which I don’t have.
