Music And My OCD

First things first my homies and homettes! I became what they call a bedroom DJ back in the mid 80’s, then quit in the mid 90’s. During that time, I was also introduced to making electronic music using drum machines and other equipment. A couple of years ago, I decided to get back into mixing and electronic music because… I really missed it and what I did most of my weekends was to binge drink. So I bought myself some basic DJ equipment and music production software. But like always, I only do it as a hobby that I love, not for fame and money.

The one thing that I notice this time around was, that talk therapy and the crazy meds have helped me a lot with my anxiety and OCD, but they have not been able to completely make my OCD intrusive thoughts and images go away. On the other hand, mixing and creating my own electronic music, actually helps even more. Remember, that I am an expert at nothing, but what I am trying to say is, that maybe, just maybe, if you find something like a hobby, that will keep your mind busy for a while, it MIGHT eventually help with your OCD. I say MIGHT, because one of the many things that people don’t know is, that everybody’s OCD manifest itself in different ways. That’s the reason why, when I write a post about OCD, I specifically include the words “MY OCD” in the title.

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
