Hey Susan, if you're still around, I have a question - what specific cardiovascular disease(s) have you had?

Maggie: "rejection sensitivity" has been around as a concept for a while...I think Dr. Klein was the first to characterize it (in the late '60s, I think). It's often part of depression or generalised anxiety disorder, but I don't think it's specifically associated with OCD. Peter Kramer discusses it some in _Listening to Prozac_.

People with OCD usually have ritualistic behaviours (such as counting, checking the locks on the door, or washing their hands) that are often related to specific obsessions (fear of germs, etc.). I don't think the kind of rumination you describe is so much an OCD thing.

Toby, others - thoughts?
