I have OCPD (similar in many ways to OCD) also and if you get a good doc who can find the right combination of meds for you, you will be able to enjoy life, excel at work, and sit through just about anything without your obsessive thoughts controlling you and leaving you unable to focus. I used to believe that psychotropic drugs/ antidepressants/ mood altering pills were the devil and I suffered for years in silence, but since I've been on medications life has been much easier and more fulfilling. It's worth getting help especially since it will help you keep this job (if you get it), or get a job (if you don't).
Who comes for a job interview with cat hair all over them? And you have OCD? I have CDO it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order... Like they should be...
Listen, I did not mean any harm. If it cause offense to you did then I'm sorry. But please don't make a big massive deal about it! It was a joke! If you think I'm an asshole then you are free to do that. But don't get in a dither and panic about how rude the comment was.
Cat hair... or pussy hair? If you know what I mean...
Yes, congrats to you, OP. Really, some people are just so used to being covered in pet hair that they don't even notice it and are oblivious to the fact that others may have issues. I think it's a good idea to tell that person that you have pet allergies and perhaps that will motivate him to at least brush himself off before going in to work. While it isn't exactly true, most people are more sympathetic to allergies than they are to OCD (my sister-in-law also has severe OCD so I know how it is). Good luck to you. Even if you don't get the job, you should be proud of the fact that you made it through the interview under those conditions.
I hope I didn't cross the path of too Many OCD persons then ^^; (we have so many cats it's IMPOSSIBLE to not have any of their hair on our clothes and food)
