> I've never been disposed towards analytic interpretations of OCD, but one interesting thing is that my (now severe) OCD emerged precisely at a time when I could no longer live in denial of my ADHD, and emerged as another excuse to divert me from it. No CBT practitioner seems particularly enthused about this idea -- that the OCD itself became a kind of defense mechanism -- but my old psychiatrist said it seemed perfectly logical to him.

I've discovered this about myself. Or at least strongly theorized it. I suspect my brain prefers the stress of irrational concerns to the stress of entirely rational concerns. OCD can be one of the most powerful distractors.
