“The Gift of OCPD” is a self-help blog written by a recovered OCPDer for people with OCPD, their loved ones, and anyone else who is interested in learning about this highly misunderstood personality type.
In all of my research and self-examination, I have discovered that OCPD once used to be a wonderful personality type, before it became poisoned by hurt and anxiety. Most of the available information on OCPD, however, makes no reference to that original personality. The lack of this information gives readers very little to hope for. The purpose of this blog is to give readers that kind of hope and provide helpful strategies all in a way that works well with the thinking/learning style of people with OCPD (concise and organized writing, sequential ordering of information, analytical approach to problems with a heavy focus on logical reasoning, etc.).
It is my hope that those with or close to somebody with OCPD would experience an extraordinary life, not just a tolerable one.
