I hope that's what's going on with me too... the OCD definitely gets a little stronger everyday. I ever found myself walking backwards this morning (something I used to do when I was a kid if I forgot something as I was walking out the door) very weird, how the mind/body just kicks into another gear when it has too.... amazing huh?
Do you have any hints to some more healthy OCD thigns to do to keep me quiet? (Yup, got the ADD too) like puzzles and stuff? I can't read a book at this point, I can bearly work... I need something... like a rubix cube or something haha- I can imagine myself throwing the cube at someone's head right now... hehe
> I've noticed that myself. That OCD can serve a protective function. Most professionals seem to have forgotten that idea from old psychoanalytic theory. But I think there's a bit of merit to it.
