OCD and OCPD. These conditions are often confused.
Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder or OCPD can and does have a negative impact on relationships. Living with someone who has this disorder can be frustrating and emotionally draining as their obsessions and perfectionism become harder to bear.
There are some misconceptions between OCPD and OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) as the two are regularly confused. Both are anxiety disorders but people with OCPD do not know they suffer a mental condition, it is a disorder of their personality. To them their traits are normal and everyone else is considered lazy, misguided and generally wasting their time on trivial matters like socialising.
OCD is not OCPD. Many people think that Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is the same condition as Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder. They are two different conditions, one being a condition of anxiety (OCD), the other being a personality trait condition. People with OCD understand they have a disorder which is impacting negatively on their life, people with OCPD have no idea their condition impacts negatively on their life, or anyone else's for that matter.
