Invisible Friend. OCD – Can We Be Friends?

Those who know me know music is one of my obsessions/compulsions (compulsion if I’m honest). Drives them crazy, as I will pick a song and it goes on repeat until I feel it’s….done. Could be months to over half a year to a year (yes, you read right).

My OCD has started flaring pretty badly in the last week(s), and I’m not alone. Other mental health blogs I read seem to report similar uptick in struggles.

This song came on the other day and though it’s on my playlist, it felt so….OCD.

Invisible Friend feat Sarah De Warren by Lizot.

Down by the river you’re holding my hand,
In a fairytale land,
My invisible friend.

A dime for your wishes, a coin in my bed,
You’re still in my head
My invisible friend. (repeat)

Da Da Ba Da Da Da Ba Da (repeat)
A dime for your wishes, a coin in my bed,
You’re still in my head
My invisible friend. (repeat)

May not make sense to some, but it just rang true for me at the time and I latched on. All the repeating of the same verses maybe (love my repeats), or just the reference of an invisible friend.

Perhaps if I looked at OCD as an invisible friend, trekking through life with this affliction would be a much different journey. That is food for thought actually. With my tendency toward rumination, this one is going to play out for awhile in my mind I think.

Can OCD be my friend and not my enemy?
