Hi pseudoname,

I don't fit the classic OCD symptoms either, though I do have to check that a door is locked twice and I have to straighten lamp shades and picture frames. Even in my T's office, so maybe I am classic. Anyway...

I am a compulsive Refuse To Give Up person. I try and try for jobs and beat myself up for failing to get them. I think my T would say it's a compulsion. I'll have to ask her as I never thought of it as one before. Thanks for posting your question.
