The only time I fear obsessiveness is when I experience "WORRY" that doesn't seem to let up and just torments me every waking moment and then even wakes me up from sleep to have a further audience. on a lighter note, I wouldn't mind being a bit more obsessive about housework, I am experiencing symptoms of depression and find it difficult to maintain a tidy household. For example, the carpets haven't been vacuumed for literally months. Perhaps it is obsessive avoidance of doing unpleasant tasks, not recognizing the joyous reward of a clean abode.

Members, Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) occurs when anxiety manifests itself through persistent and uncontrollable thoughts (obsessions) or by the compelling need to perform one or more actions repeatedly (compulsion). Compulsions are usually related to the obsessive thoughts that individuals possess. Obsessions tend to focus on: - Fears (such as being contaminated by germs) - Doubts (such as forgetting to lock the door) - Impulses (such as hurting oneself or others). Compulsions consist of actions such as: - Cleaning - Checking - Actions that prevent impulses from occurring Do you have any questions about OCD or similar behaviour patterns? Please ask, share your experiences or comment. Sylvie, Bilingual Health Educator
