You learn something new every day!
While we feel like we hear a lot about celebrities having OCD, we never knew that Beatle George Harrison had it as well.
“While under extreme personal and professional pressures in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, Harrison’s OCD symptoms accelerated. His need for order, extreme neatness and disciplining his life to be controlled and predictable was stifling — a burdensome form of self-imprisonment."
We really can't imagine what that's like!
Here's an example of George's issues:
“At his recording sessions Harrison employed a tea boy, a fellow whose sole job was to brew tea and immediately tidy up the empty cups and scattered napkins," Davis wrote. "The tea boy was under strict orders — no sooner did a musician put down his cup then it was instantly confiscated along with soiled napkins.
"It appeared that for Harrison, wrestling with OCD symptoms, one wayward teacup or crumbled napkin constituted a distracting, paralyzing, chaotic mess that hindered his concentration and made him extremely nervous.”
We feel so bad for those that have to live with that burden — we wish there was something we could do!
Also, we wonder if it got worse or better before George passed away.
