#ImSoOCD: Taking it Back

Just a quick one today.

A fellow writer from another one of those freelancer groups has kicked off an attempt to take back #ImSoOCD on Twitter.

Her goal is to flood a tag that has been filled with people joking about lining up pens or sorting Skittles with some of the real symptoms and problems we face with OCD, to raise awareness.

She is asking anyone with OCD and Twitter who is comfortable sharing and obsession or compulsion to do so. If that sounds like you, this would hopefully be a quick, easy way to raise some awareness about what OCD really is. On top of that, people with OCD could read the tag and find support from others who are going through the same thing.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
