So recently my OCD has stayed pretty much at its usual level – still weird for other people and still not good for me, but nothing i can't handle.
So I get invited to go out with some friends of mine to dinner the other night. Now go out to dinner for me is a process. Find the right table and rearrange things "Just right" and THEN I can eat. My one friend who invited me knows that I have OCD – like real OCD and not "quirks" and he claims to have it as well (although I seriously doubt he has it after what he pulled that night) His personality is…well…the dick. He's the jerk of the group and everybody loves him for it it seems. You can call this guy an asshole but he wears the title proudly and readily admits to it. Well at least hes not in denial!
Anywho, so we're at dinner and I start reorganizing the table like I always do – not making a big scene of it, just a little here and a little there and usually nobody notices/care. Because he KNOWS I have OCD, he waits and watches me – like I'm some sort of specimen to be observed. Then he'll move something on purpose or make it uneven or something on purpose and tortures me with it – laughing maniacally as I begin to freak out because – well thats what I do, I get "scared". He made it a point to do this in front of our friends and they all laughed and thought Tim was the funniest guy in the world, while I was hyperventlating and trying to calm myself. Then worst of all he knows I have a germ-phobia with spit. I hate spit and I don't eat something if someone else has spit on it or touched something that was in their mouth to it or anything like that. So he grabs his spoon, sticks it in his mouth and proceeds to stir my drink with it and then licks it AGAIN and touches all my food. Needless to say I was a nervous wreck, I didn't eat and I wasted $15 on a dinner that he tained with his saliva. And everyone laughed at me and thought Tim was a funny guy for it.
I have no clue why I confided to him. He caught me at a time when I was near the edge of being severly depressed and asked whats wrong, so I told him. Now he uses it as a weapon against me ALL THE TIME! I don't know what to do, I'm not confrontational. And anytime I do stick up for myself, nobody takes it seriously especially Tim. It only antagonizes him to do it more! Ug I don't know what to do anymore.
