"I don't know if I'd call it OCD though...from my understanding, OCD is a condition where people are ritualistic to a paralyzing degree...to keep themselves from losing their mind.
What I have with AF is just continual, circular thinking about the past and some traumatic events/crummy situations."
OCD can be something that you live with all your life and it would not necessarily become something paralyzing unless something traumatic happened to trigger it into overdrive. I've lived most of my life with it until something really traumatic happened to me then I had a breakdown.
This message was suppose to appear under your message but for some reason a lot of my messages end up everywhere except where I put them.
