*I’m not criticizing or condemning people who casually say “my OCD is crazy” because we all have obsessive compulsions, and I just don’t think getting mad or offended is at all necessary... but actual chronic and daily OCD is different and a very serious struggle. I was diagnosed 20 years ago with severe OCD, Anxiety, and Depression. I don’t remember it bothering me as much when I was 0-12. When it started to get worse I often would attach it to physical things, (like getting the perfect action figure, comic book, dvd of my favorite show, etc, etc.) Then when I was about 25-ish I got into Apple products after my uncle gave me the first iPad back in 2010. I didn’t care about it much as I am an 80’s kid who didn’t really have tech or a want for it until my 20’s. Anyways, in my 20’s I shifted from collecting comic paraphernalia and such. Inadvertently i now attach my ocd to Apple products and it’s been hell. I constantly worry that my iPad isn’t perfect so I need to trade it in over and over until I get one that passes my “perfection” test (95% or higher is my threshold) as in there can only be 5% imperfections (tiny, tiny scratches on the aluminum but not the glass, or I accept minor imperfections with the aluminum.) Obviously all iPads will have some distortion, indents, or bumps due to manufacturing and just plain physics. This last iPad though has stressed me out more than any before. I exchanged it probably 5 times. I got the last replacement Jan. 4th... the screen, speakers, camera, and glass display have no issues I can see. The back has a very, very subtle distortion on the bottom left of the aluminum back if I look for it. At first I wanted to return it again cause I thought I had to have everything as close to perfect as possible. Then I saw a couple other people with the same issue, (which helped me start to think logically.) But what really helped was my older brother (who has more intense OCD) talked me down and helped me realize how silly I was being. It took so much to accept the iPad and was hard counting down the days for a return to expire. My iPad works great, I’ll get a glitch here and there, but overall it’s amazing. ***the whole point of this post is see if anyone else would like to share their difficulties with OCD when concerning Apple products. I still have days where I think I maybe could get a closer to perfect iPad if I take it to Apple and use AppleCare+ to swap it out. But reality sets in and I realize the things I think are issues are most likely affecting all iPads with the issue... since others had it, and the rest of owners probably can’t see it or don’t look for it I feel like swapping is pointless. It’s honestly still really hard, I was and am still somewhat ruled by OCD thoughts. Hopefully people are okay with talking about a personal mental hurdle and sharing how they deal. If not, no big deal. It just helps to get other viewpoints from others who suffer from OCD with Apple products.
