In order to feel slightly peaceful, I have to have order in my life. When things start moving out of my control then I become overwhelmed and start to panic. At its worse this can cause a relapse. The simplest example, which I explain in greater detail under Triggers, is the state of the home. Once my house becomes very untidy then I start to fizz. But instead of just tidying up like a normal person, I simply cannot focus… My brain goes into overdrive and I do not know where to start which in turn makes me more angry and more frustrated. So I pace from room to room getting more and more stressed and irritable and I have to be honest and say that I can still be utterly overwhelmed and borderline hysterical when there is too much clutter! Maybe a bit OCD perhaps…
