I can’t commiserate on the experience, but I can offer some insight. To know for sure, and to get some help, you need to have an evaluation done. I would ask the psych to consider ADHD, anxiety, OCD, LD’s and maybe even depression. What you feel like is OCD sounds more to me like coping strategies you’ve developed out of fear and anxiety to repeat mistakes. I’m not a clinician though, so I could be totally off base. 😉
