I've begun to identify and write down all of my obsessions and compulsions for the last couple days. It made me begin to think about when the OCD started and I can remember that it began at a very early age. Those early memories of repetitive obsessions and compulsions usually occurred during times that I was being 'disciplined'.
As I began to look over everything I was writing, I realized that there was a deeper meaning to a lot of my OCD. So, here are my questions to you:
-What are your thoughts on the relationship between childhood abuse, trauma or strict parenting and OCD?
- Can you see any comparisons between your obsessions/compulsions and your environment growing up?
I do believe that OCD can be genetic but I also believe that the development and environmental factors for many people creates a pattern in our rituals etc.
What do you all think?
