My Hypothesis-dohertyk9

1. OCD

2. People’s perception of OCD

3. Perception of OCD versus the reality of living with it

4. People’s perception of OCD is much more mild than the reality of living with it

5. The public’s perception of the concept of OCD is extremely mild compared to the reality of the disorder

6. The general public’s concept of OCD immensely understates the severe degree to which the disorder negatively impacts the afflicted person’s everyday life.

    A good start, DohertyK9 (Canine?)
    4, 5, and 6 are identical.

    —Do you imagine an essay that chronicles the deeply debilitating disorder that utterly incapacitates the most severely afflicted? That’s one approach. Easy to dismiss because so few are so severely afflicted and—hey—what can you do for them?

    —Do you imagine an essay that identifies the many degrees of a disorder that afflicts some suffers severely and others less so? That’s another. But, yawn. Yes, every mental/psychological disorder afflicts its sufferers to varying degrees. What’s your point?

    —Do you imagine an essay that suggests we may be living in the daily presence of OCD sufferers who are vastly more impaired, struggling harder, than we could possibly imagine? And that they deserve our understanding and compassion? That would be worth investigating. Is it interesting to you? Could you demonstrate it? Is it what you had in mind?

  2. From now on, we can ignore this post, DK9. Its purpose was to get the ball rolling. Any further revisions or enhancements to your Hypothesis can be accomplished inside your White Paper, which is already showing considerable progress. Keep up the good work.

    I do regret that you didn’t respond to my comments here, but that small disappointment is now moot. I guess we’re not going to have that sort of interaction here in the blog. All the more reason to conference regularly, or by some other means keep a dialog going.

    1. My bad, I didn’t mean to ignore the reply, it made me change my mind on what direction I wanted to go with my hypothesis so it was still helpful. Thank you!
