Chinese Woman Makes the Best of Her OCD
A lot of people like to claim they suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) to some degree. While varying levels of this disease do exist, the reality of this issue is less zany or cute, and more crippling and harmful.
Having taken stock of her illness, a Chinese woman named Deng Mei has decided to take advantage of her compulsion to organize and set herself up as a professional wardrobe organizer for her various wealthy clients.
Working in the city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province, Deng Mei says that the inspiration for this work came from her earlier job as a salesperson at a fashion boutique, as well as her side job as a nanny. She found that working in this environment really highlighted her desire to sort and file. It was during her time helping a client sort a wardrobe that her client came up with the idea that she should make this a full-time profession.
Since that time in early 2015, Deng has worked for over 100 clients. She says most jobs take only a few hours, but a few of the wealthiest and messiest of clients can take over a day of cleaning and sorting before things are finally placed in order.
Deng Mei hopes to segue this into a business where she can teach other people about organization, not just the sorting of messy wardrobes, but in all facets of life. Good luck, Deng!
