> OCD is the result of very specific psychological conflicts not a chemical imbalance

hi, just wanted to say i've enjoyed reading the thoughtful and informative posts on this board

as someone who has suffered from OCD for 40+ years i have given much thought to the subject

i guess we always get back to the nature nurture arguments, my current thinking is that the central issues of ocd are about punishment and harm (in my case anyway)

we live in a world of which we have but a little understanding, where we are all vulnerable, where there are a myriad of things that can and do go wrong, often catastrophically

and where blame and punishment are dished out to all and sundry on a daily basis in an attempt to control chaos

i want to live in a world which never thought of the concepts of blame and punishment as a way of dealing with the things that go wrong in a universe based on entropy

OCD is my FEAR and LOATHING of THIS brutal world

for me it's a miracle that ANYONE is "sane" on this planet
(and i'm not sure ANYONE truly is) ;)

regards to all
