Camila Cabello Performs At OrpheumCamila Cabello sat down with Cosmopolitan U.K. & got real candid with her mental battle with OCD.  “OCD is weird. I laugh about it now,” Cabello, 21, tells the outlet in their June cover story. “Everybody has different ways of handling stress. And, for me, if I get really stressed about something, I’ll start to have the same thought over and over again, and no matter how many times I get to the resolution, I feel like something bad is about to happen if I don’t keep thinking about it.”  She didn’t realize at first what was causing these thoughts until she was diagnosed with the disorder.   “When I found out, and [learned] how to step back from it, it made me feel so much better. I feel so much more in control of it now. To the point where I’m just like, ‘Aha! OK, this is just my OCD.’ I’ll ask my mom a question for the fourth time and she’ll be like, ‘That’s OCD. You’ve got to let it go.’”
