Anankastic Personality Disorder


Personality disorder characterized by at least 3 of the following:


[1] feelings of excessive doubt and caution

Pretty badly hampered by this.

[2] preoccupation with details, rules, lists, order, organization or schedule

My days, years and decades taken over by these things.

[3] perfectionism that interferes with task completion

A million tasks unstarted or unfinished because of this, and still awaiting to be done, some after 20 or more years waiting. I'm a very good (or bad - whichever way you want to look at it) perfectionist. If it didn't mess up the rest of my life, I would be pretty proud of my perfectionism!

[4] excessive conscientiousness, scrupulousness, and undue preoccupation with productivity to the exclusion of pleasure and interpersonal relationships

For decades, no leisure, no social life, no life outside of home, very little pleasure, few relationships, no hobbies, piano collects dust. Spend all day, every day trying to be productive at home (my purpose in life because of APD), but productivity rate is next to zero, which is me trying my best. Consequently, the list of unstarted/unfinished jobs over many, many years has reached so many that, at my present rate, it would take me 3 lifetimes to complete everything. Because of this MASSIVE list, this causes IMMENSE stress, tension and pressure, which renders me very unfit to be productive. Hence the list forever gets larger - so I go forever slower, which makes the list yet bigger. Etc, etc, etc.

[5] excessive pedantry and adherence to social conventions

Oh yes.

[6] rigidity and stubbornness

Yes again, but trying to ease up a bit.

[7] unreasonable insistence by the patient that others submit to exactly his or her way of doing things, or unreasonable reluctance to allow others to do things

Very bad at this, but now that I know that being that way has been a part of a mental health condition, I am trying to be less bad at being this way.

[8] intrusion of insistent and unwelcome thoughts or impulses

This is a big unwelcome problem at times. Don't know what to do to make this less bad (re thoughts). Trying to take more notice of impulses so am now trying to think first before I act on them.
