Re: Checklist of Common OCD Symptoms
Robert, you have enough going on without the added complication of OCD!!
These check list thingies are always a bad idea, because they are so global that just about everyone who takes them has all or most of the symptoms on the checklist! it's like 'Aristotle was a man, I am a man, therefore I am Aristotle'.
The key symptom, the most important thing about TRUE OCD is psychosis. People with OCD really believe that they MUST engage in whatever thought (obsession) or behavior (complulsion) they believe. It is real torture for them, they cannot stop themselves.
Please, please, tell me this doesn't pertain to you. Or anyone else in this thread.
