Day 10: What is the best thing in regards to your mental illness(es)?

The best thing in regards to my OCD is that it gives me a drive to be better than I am today. This is what propelled me into Georgia Tech, what drove  me to pursue a career within my field, and what pushes me to be successful and improve every day. Not to mention, I’m an employer’s dream. 🙂

The best thing in regards to my diagnosis of OCD is that it has made me more aware and more compassionate of the struggles of others. I find myself being less quick to judge, slow to anger and embracing a more calm, relaxed lifestyle. I don’t want people to see me for just my disorder, so I try to not to see other people for just their issues.
