I have a great link for responsibility OCD. I'll have to look for it.

I first identified my own problem in Ethics class in college. When they talked about Scrupulosity I felt like Linus standing up and bowling the professor over by shouting "THAT'S IT!!!"

Years later, that's what I was diagnosed with. OCD. Not so much rituals as obessions. And mainly responsibility obsessions.

Oddly enough I married someone with OCD, and he also has OCPD. He diagnosed the OCPD himself when he was reading one of my books. :) So I'm not saying anything about him that he wouldn't say about himself. His OCD is similar but different.

Boy, can we feed each other sometimes when his stuff overlaps with my stuff.

There is hope, though, and a reasonably good prognosis. I've got my OCD mostly under control with CBT. The book "Stop Obsessing!" was my favorite, but "Brain Lock" is also good.
