    Urg. Sometimes I wish I were OCD... i'm the opposite. Before getting a dog, the longest my room stayed clean (ie. i can see the floor) was a week and a half. (it's being clean for a month now! ) I tend to be very disorganized and messy, and must admit that I'm a bit of a clothes tosser
    Please, Angela, come live with me!

    I guess I don't know what it's like. People (like me) can be ignorant until it hits us right in the face. A bit like Dora's farts!

    My 5 year old was diagnosed with OCD when he was 3, it makes for some fun times!
    I don't tend to say anything about it, but apparently I'd be better off doing that than what I do at the moment.... I jump in and clean

    I hate dust. I clean every speck of dust out of the house.
    I can tell you I'm not anxious at all, I just like my home to be clean, fresh and organised. I'm the same at work, everything has it's place and everything should be in it's place. I absolutely hate not being able to find anything!

    LOL Hubby used to be the same. Just try to get into the habit of tossing the clothes into a hamper (even a box will do). Even if you don't do it straight away, but before you go to bed tidy everything up - if that makes sense?

    DGP I would much rather she show some interest in it and be able to learn about it instead of being afraid to mention it or ask about it. Anxiety can be very very difficult to deal with and I do understand that, but this level OCD isn't a burden or a bother at all. It just means that I clean.

    There are lots of other forms of OCD, one lady I know has been diagnosed with severe OCD and her home is one of the messiest I have seen. She is pedantic about her personal cleanliness and about her light switches, but that's it.

    I'm not saying that it is a good thing, but it's not the worst thing in the world if that makes sense.

    What I have listed is what I do every day or every second day. It doesn't stop me from living my life, from running my business or from spending time with Batty. There are some people who's lives stop because of their disorder. I'm way too stubborn to let that happen

    I think you just wish you were far cleaner than you are now

    i think OCD can be very debilitating imagine the stress of not being sure if Everything is in its proper place/condition. the anxiety and constant worry about things that a person obsesses about can effect normal day to day functioning. further more i think it is a highly miss understood condition that some people take to lightly..
    i have seen how it can effect people and their families and i dont really think its a joking matter
