Thanks sleepygirl. I appreciate that.

That's a thought provoking question. :) I hadn't thought in those terms.

I guess posting and retracting is most comfortable for me. But then I get to thinking that I "should" work on trying to change that which makes me so anxious that I think I shouldn't post at all. If that makes sense.

Realistically what I'd like to do is reduce the time I spend writing and rewriting posts I don't even submit. Or ones that I do submit, I suppose. It's taking too much time that I can't really spare. It's not my usual behavior at all when my OCD isn't acting up. And it astonishes me how much time I eat up doing that.

So maybe the best thing to do is to put a babble timer on myself. Hmmm... I'll run it by my CBT oriented therapist tomorrow.

Thank you for unsticking me a bit.
