  • I do, yes. Thankfully my case is mild enough that it's only an inconvenience and not a life ruiner. I'm getting a lot better with germs since I had kids. Most of my issues are small, anxiety when a certain thing isn't a specific way.

  • I've got a mild touch of the CDO (that's like OCD, but the letters are in the correct order).

  • I do! I have had it since I was a child and I was very bad with different things. I have never been on meds for it because when I was younger my mom would help me get over things and as I've gotten older and notice myself getting bad with something I work myslf away from it.
