The three are the least understood and most commonly diagnosed and medicated by "professionals". Something to consider.
and besides - while I'm willing to believe the worst :-) I think much of the fascination (read obsession) with OCD starts to look like it might be
a little OCD - if you see what I'm saying :-)
I just think it's interesting how we, as individuals and groups, manage and arrange the different elements of our environments - including objects,
time, space, relationships, concepts - everything...
as long as people do what almost everyone else is doing - it's fine. When it breaks away from the norm it's sometimes seen as a problem - even if
it's not a problem at all
on the other hand - if it interferes with your life in someway and makes you unhappy - that's different
I had a friend once that had to rearrange everything in her environment to suit her
she once completely rearranged everything in a hotel room where we were only staying for 2 nights - including unbolting the art from the wall. We (we
- because I helped) got in trouble for that - and, we weren't kids - so...embarrassing and costly
she once was house-sitting for a family spending their summer in Europe - huge house - lavishly decorated
she rearranged every room while they were gone - art - lamps - dishes...garden furniture.
she rolled up all their oriental carpets and put them in the basement - because she didn't like the colors - she swore they would thank her when they
returned and could see what she'd done with their house
they did not thank her
she had a little problem...and it did spill over into other areas of her life
