I post on several sports related boards. The other day someone posted about washing his hands a lot because so many people are sick right now. And I replied that because I have OCD, hand washing is a bad road for me to start down.
It's the first time I've ever written about my OCD outside of the OCD blog community. Nobody commented on it. I don't know if they didn't notice, didn't care, or didn't want to make a big deal out of it.
I've met most of the people on that board in person, and they mostly live in my town, so there's not the usual anonymity of online. Anyway, whether it's the start of more openness for me, I don't know. But I'm glad I tried it out.
