In fact, when I posted on one of my social networks about having trouble writing an essay about my OCD, a friend suggested I do some cleaning to “get in the mood.” I wish my OCD manifested like that. In all seriousness, there’s a side to this disorder that isn’t discussed enough because it’s uncomfortable. Maybe you’re driving down the highway and an image of your car veering into the guardrail and spinning out flashes into your mind. I have what’s known as Pure Obsessional OCD — or “Pure O” — a little-known subset of the disorder.It’s uncomfortable for those of us who struggle because we’re afraid of being judged, and it’s upsetting and disturbing to hear that a friend or family member is experiencing it. It’s brief and disturbing, but you shake it off, perhaps literally, giving your head a quick shake at the strangeness of it. Little-known enough that it isn’t listed on the Mayo Clinic website.At times, it feels like a silent horror movie is being played out in my head, one that I am a part of but have no control over.In that movie, I lose control of the knife I’m using to cut grapes and stab myself or my children in the eye.According to the OCD Center of Los Angeles, for people with Pure O, “obsessions often manifest as intrusive, unwanted thoughts, impulses or “mental images” of committing an act they consider to be harmful, violent, immoral, sexually inappropriate, or sacrilegious.For individuals with Pure Obsessional OCD, these thoughts can be frightening and torturous precisely because they are so antithetical to their values and beliefs.” I suffered silently with this disorder for years without realizing it could be OCD.Glynis first began her art education with the Arts Foundation Program at Kwantlen College in Surrey, British Columbia.From there she went on to the University of British Columbia in Vancouver where she received her BA in Studio Art/Theatre.
