Just to name a few...( copy and paste )Obsessions are defined by: Recurrent and persistent thoughts, impulses, or images that are experienced at some time during the disturbance, as intrusive and inappropriate and that cause marked anxiety or distress. The thoughts, impulses, or images are not simply excessive worries about real-life problems. The person attempts to ignore or suppress such thoughts, impulses, or images, or to neutralize them with some other thought or action. The person recognizes that the obsessional thoughts, impulses, or images are a product of his or her own mind, and are not based in reality. The tendency to laggle over small details that the viewer is unable to fix or change in any way. This begins a mental pre-occupation with that which is inevitable. Compulsions are defined by: Repet_tive behaviors or mental acts that the person feels driven to perform in response to an obsession, or according to rules that must be applied rigidly. The behaviors or mental acts are aimed at preventing or reducing distress or preventing some dreaded event or situation; however, these behaviors or mental acts either are not connected in a realistic way with what they are designed to neutralize or prevent or are clearly excessive. In addition to these criteria, at some point during the course of the disorder, the sufferer must realize that his/her obsessions or compulsions are unreasonable or excessive. Moreover, the obsessions or compulsions must be time-consuming (taking up more than one hour per day), cause distress, or cause impairment in social, occupational, or school functioning (Quick Reference from DSM-IV-TR, 2000). OCD often causes feelings similar to that of depression. [edit] Symptoms and prevalence OCD is manifested in a variety of forms. Community education have placed the prevalence between 1 and 3%, although the prevalence of clinically recognized OCD is much lower, suggesting that many individuals with the disorder are unaccounted for clinically.[1] The fact that many individuals do not seek treatment may be due in part to stigma a__sociated with OCD. The typical OCD sufferer performs tasks (or compulsions) to seek relief from obsession-related anxiety. To others, these tasks may appear odd and unnecessary. But for the sufferer, such tasks can feel critically important, and must be performed in particular ways to ward off dire consequences and to stop the stress from building up. Examples of these tasks: repeatedly checking that one's parked car has been locked before leaving it; turning lights on and off a set number of times before exiting a room; repeatedly washing hands at regular intervals throughout the day. Rearranging matters rigidly may be a sign of OCDSymptoms may include some, all, or perhaps none of the following: Repeated hand-washing. Specific counting systems — e.g. counting in groups of four, arranging objects in groups of three, grouping objects in odd/even numbered groups, etc. One serious symptom which stems from this is "counting" your steps, e.g. you must take twelve steps to the car in the morning. Perfectly aligning objects at complete, absolute right angles, etc. This symptom is shared with OCPD and can be confused with this condition unless it is realized that in OCPD it is not stress-related.

Hmm, i think handwashing was listed ONCE in that post...

Your post did not start out as friendly & innocent... "now that you are a SAHM...the house could be a little more in order than it was. Not saying it should be spotless, but since you are at home, between the baby and naps , im sure it could get done. Sometimes a clean house is nessacerry when you have LO's at home crawling all over. Not spotless, but at least sanitary." You pretty much told Felisha she was lazy. A few dishes & a load of laundry is not that big a deal - especially when you have surprise company. It's impossible to keep your house spotless 24/7 (you have to use dishes to eat, drink... so there will be times when they are dirty). Felisha, I think it's great that your hubby was able to stand up to her for you like that.


hello - February 13

I still think you lack alot of maturity and i still doubt you have ocd. When u get time from cleaning your house, take some time and read how you reply to people... Felisha never said she had a dirty house, she has a few dishes in the sink... you said she had the dirty house and that is not good for a child .......Just remember you are not the only one in this world who doesn't stop all day, sometimes i feel like you think its just you who knows how to be the great mother, worker, wife etc.... You are not alone dear, the world is full of them.....I guess we all have ocd or most of us, i like organisation, i check for my keys when i get home etc etc.... i write a shopping list, does that count..... later ash


hello - February 13

Your reply on feb 11... 22.11 is the one that made me see how immature you can be... That was my point as well that i was trying to make..... I will agree with one thing, i will stop now cause unless its about the original question/ comment then its useless..... Have said what i needed too......

You have a good man! My mil told me that I will have to start bringing in some income soon because we can't live off just dh's income forever. I didn't even know what to say! I think I said something stupid like, well, I plan on doing something to make money one of these days. I was too shocked to say anything worth while! All the things I would say to her if I weren't so chicken...


LollyM - February 13

Oh wow, I just read all the posts on here... Look, I don't know if my attempt at mediation will help here, but it is only in my nature to try. Felisha, I don't think Ash2 meant to be rude, even if it sounded that way and Ash2, please realize that felisha is only sounding mean because she feels like you are attacking her. You guys, really I think you are both great ladies and you both have the best of intentions for your lives and children. You probably have more in common than you think you do. I can think of one thing, you're both pa__sionate about your families! That is clear by reading this thread =) I'm sorry, I know I'm a sap. I always want people to get along and understand eachother. We all have so much to offer one another as human beings! flowermama, I love those poems! Makes me feel better about what my house looks like right now!

flowermomma-I am taking those poems and hanging them on my fridge, for every time I go crazy that my house is a mess and I am too tired to clean up. Thanx : )

I spend every waking minute playing with, taking care of, and cleaning after my baby. And cleaning my house (scrubbing toilets and all) and cooking and I work. Believe me-my house always has a couple of dishes in the sink, a few crumbs aorund the highchair, it is physically impossible to keep your house perfectly clean with a baby. Unless you stash the baby in one spot and just clean all day long. Not even realistic.....
