I'd be a really unsympathetic doctor

I have been officially diagnosed with OCD, which is classified as an anxiety disorder. I was reading about the symptoms of PTSD, also classified as an anxiety disorder, and realized that in my case I am comorbid.

My immediate reaction to myself was, "How DARE you have PTSD, when so many of your friends have gone through so much worse. Stop whining."

Interesting. I think my own thoughts and assessment of myself may be counterproductive at times.
