Fellow sufferer here. Thanks for this candid piece. I agree completely with your issue with that sign. My sense of humor is alive and well, but if you understand how horrible OCD is, you don’t use it as an adjective/ acronym for a kitschy sign. Nobody would say, for example, “I’m just so diabetes about sugar. I can’t stop eating chocolate!”
