Hi there. OCD is different for everybody. What I might irrationally think about, someone else may not. I don't have germ problems. I'm actually a messy person. I don't have to touch things. There are people that have compulsions and other that have pure irrational thinking or sometimes a combination of the two. You cannot compare people. Monk is a TV show and of course they wanted to highlight OCD in a big way so they made him over the top...not that that isn't possible. But again, it is different for everybody.
Are you still on meds? Still doing well or not?
thanks for the comment. I guess I have had just about every dumb thought when it comes to mental health issues, Fortunately the people who have helped me have made it not as weird as it is on TV and Movies. Anyway thanks for posting.
