Sure. Like I said before, her anxieties are one of the few things she absolutely does not want to talk with me about mostly because she seems incredibly embarrassed of them. I've asked her a few times about it, and from what I can tell she can be quite anxious sometimes but mostly keeps it to herself because she recognizes that there's usually nothing to be anxious about. There's been a few times where I actually witnessed it, like when she would ask me to come over during thunderstorms or this one time where she started crying during sex. I immediately pulled out and hugged her while she told me it was stupid of her to cry and that it usually doesn't happen when I'm around. I felt pretty bad about that.
Her compulsive behaviors are very manageable compared to some other OCD cases I've seen. She had this particular habit of checking her door, rooms and stove multiple times at night because she was afraid of dying from carbon monoxide poisoning in her sleep or someone breaking in at night. She used to live on the ground floor and was constantly worried someone would get in through the window so she left them locked up tight even in the dead of summer so it was always very hot at her place. She lives in a nice apartment though with an electric stove so she's got it under control right now.
Funny fact, I was actually the one who first suggested she might have OCD. Her constant compulsions to check the door, window and stove whenever she went to bed as well as her describing her thoughts as "clearly silly but incredibly intrusive" made me think of my best friend who also happened to have OCD and shows similar traits, so I suggested to her to ask her therapist about it. When she got back from her session she had the official diagnosis.>>123637348
Yeah, she usually likes getting pet or having her hair played with.>>123637397
I saw a few similarities but she can actually handle herself in public fine. Let me write up some stories, I'm out of letters.
