I can do that as well :) I vary between two very different OCD symptoms... one is a fear of contamination, that something in my environment will kill me. The other is a fear of doing something wrong (sexual, violent, etc) that will offend people and cause people to leave me.
Interspersed with those is a general feeling of doing things in the "wrong" order - checking to see if the door is locked, etc. In general, a distrust of my perception of reality. --- In Zen_Forum@yahoogroups.com, Maria Lopez <flordel...@...> wrote: > > Thanks DP.Â I would have much prefer having yourself personal experience > with that disorder.Â But I understand.Â Thank you for the link.Â Mayka > > > --- On Sun, 15/8/10, DP <dave.dplat...@...> wrote: > > > From: DP <dave.dplat...@...> > Subject: Re: [Zen] Namaste- first message > To: Zen_Forum@yahoogroups.com > Date: Sunday, 15 August, 2010, 14:46 > > > Â > > > > > > --- In Zen_Forum@yahoogroups.com, Maria Lopez <flordeloto@> wrote: > > > > Welcome to the zen forum DP; > > ÃÂ > > What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?.ÃÂ What's that about?. > > I could try to explain it myself, but these do it better... > > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obsessive_compulsive_disorder > > My particular kind of OCD is closest to Scrupulosity. > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obsessive_compulsive_disorder > > Is being Christian an impediment to me being on here?
