Recently, actress Emily Blunt spoke, in an interview with the Observer, about her growing fears regarding her obsessive compulsive disorder. Among her observations, she mentioned her growing concern that this condition could quickly become an issue for both her life and her career as she got older.
For those of you unfamiliar with OCD, let’s just look at a quick example. A person not suffering from OCD might have to choose between getting their cable television from a site like http://www.cable-tv.com/ or a competitor. Ultimately, this person makes a decision and deals with it. However, a person suffering from OCD will make a decision and then might obsess for days, weeks or even months about their decision – assuming they even make the decision in the first place. Imagine applying that mindset to EVERY aspect of your life and you are one step closer to understanding Blunt’s plight.
Even though Blunt revealed that she had been dealing with this condition since childhood, she believes that it is in fact getting much worse. When asked why the condition might be worsening, Blunt could only speculate that it had to do with stress with her career and the family. However, despite her fears, Blunt is still working in movies and remains hopeful.
