Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners

Ok watching this programme and yes i do know not all OCD is cleaning before anyone starts but omg how on earth can these people hold down jobs (yes they do) and clean between 8 and 19 yes 19 hours a day, do these people not have toilet breaks or sleep? Or eat? or anything?

P.s they just found a random cat asleep in the messy house lol

I am currently:

if they are doing that many hours of compulsions they probably aren't holding down jobs... i don't have cleanliness compulsions, but had really severe ocd. i could manage school up through about 8-9 hrs of compulsions a day (and sleeping about 5 hrs a night). once i got up to 10-14 hrs though i couldn't effectively do anything. absolutely nothing got done.

or, they can be doing compulsions while doing work. for example, i could do my homework, but doing it required doing compulsions, which made it take an excessively long time and be extremely stressful.




this is my magical medicine cabinet. Left to right they contain: courage, hope, calmness, and strength.

The magical part: They NEVER run out, so borrow some any time you want.

maybe they do some sort of work that is audio/verbal? so like they can wear a blue tooth and work, and clean the house at the same time? also, i'd imagine that part of those hours are triggered by eating and using the bathroom
