Following blogs and privacy
WHAT!? Now when I try to follow a blog, rather than following it as "Liquorice Pixie" or anonymously, I am asked to follow it using my real name (which blogger has taken from my yahoo email address) or anonymously. I like following somewhat publicly as Liquorice Pixie whilst still keeping my real name and email address private.
Privacy is a big issue for me, I always shut the curtains (when I'm home in case people watch me through the windows, and when I'm out in case people look at my stuff)!
A 30 year old Academic, I suffer mild but clinical Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and consequent panic attacks. I envisage physical spaces, events, time periods, and sometimes even conversations as having spatial qualities which then need to be clean, smooth, ordered, or clear. It's usually tidiness not cleanliness which is an issue for me, and my OCD behavior is a direct response to stress or depression.
I hope that my blogged experiences are helpful or informative to any readers, and I would be interested in being in contact with anyone who suffers a similar form of OCD as I.
☆ my no-crap promise ☆
I won't blog about anything other than my experiences with and my reflections on OCD, as that is the primary purpose of this blog.
