It's CDO.  That way all the letters are in alphabetical order.  As they should be.

odd numbers are great.  That means there are an even number of posts on either side of the very middle of the thread.  This is the best type of balance

Not true. It's utterly hilarious when you get stuck opening and closing a browser window for a full hour at work so that something bad won't happen.

/yes. I did that.

Really, considering the show is about a guy with OCD.  That had to be intentional.

Potential diagnostic tool: ask someone, "How's the ODC?" If they get all fidgety, they probably have it.

Yes. Know someone who has all sorts of back & shoulder pain due to being OCD about all sorts of shiat. Always tensing up & acting out churlishly about shiat.

He takes drugs/does PT due to the shoulder pain & inability to accept that he's OCD.

Attempting to open doors with your elbows, my wife does that.  She's a germaphobe of the first order.  I've just finished cleaning the calcium carbonate build up on the pan to the dish rack, with vinegar, because, she said, "It was so bad, I couldn't imagine putting my dishes in it."  I mentioned that it was calcium carbonate from our water, the water we drink daily, and it wasn't touching anything in the dish rack.  No matter, "It was mildewy, moldy and disgusting."  When I'm at home, and if I drop a piece of food on the floor, I pick it up and eat it, because I really don't care and it freaks her out.  It's the passive/aggressive thing to do, so I have my own problems.  I've got a lot of other problems and know it.  She's got problems, and cannot accept the fact that the things she does are weird.  In my next reincarnation, I'm going to stay single or be gay, but, karma says I'll probably come back as a crazy woman.

Of course she was.  Dallas after Monk, and Simpsons before?  The boxes aren't in alphabetical order, I'd be horrified too.

I wonder when OCD became a cool affliction to claim for one's self. I suppose it's less off-putting than announcing you're bi-polar, though plenty of people still seem to do that, too. It's almost like folks combed the ol' DSM IV looking for shiat that made them special.

Wingchild: I wonder when OCD became a cool affliction to claim for one's self. I suppose it's less off-putting than announcing you're bi-polar, though plenty of people still seem to do that, too. It's almost like folks combed the ol' DSM IV looking for shiat that made them special.


It qualifies you for Disability. That's why.

Most people have some level of 'OCD'  That feeling of "did I leave the door unlocked?" that you get? Then you go and check and the feeling is gone and you're on with your day? That's the feeling OCD sufferers get. It's just that once someone with OCD checks something, the feeling doesn't go away, so they have to check over and over and over, and develop rituals to help them get through the day.

That isn't even getting into the mental component of obsessive compulsive thoughts, or the fact that you can get stuck for hours doing something completely useless. Like washing your hands till they bleed.

If you want to get an idea of what OCD is like, buy a bottle of hand soap, and proceed to wet your hands for a 5 count, put 2 pumps of soap on your hands. Lather for a 10 count, then rinse for a 5 count.

Now repeat those steps until the entire bottle of hand soap is empty. No stopping. No drying your hands. No taking a break. No stopping to pee or eat.

When you are done washing your hands and the bottle of soap is empty, dry your hands off and imagine having to start ALL OVER AGAIN, because the towel you used to try them has a slightly funny smell.

/That's what OCD is like.
//Not cool.

CSB time:

I applied for a job a few months ago. The hiring manager replied to my application by sending me an outline of what the job would require. One line read as follows:

-Must have attention to, detail

I threw out the response and withdrew my application. My boss is friends with that hiring manager, so she asked why I withdrew the application. I told her, she laughed and said "that's why your job will always be safe here, you crazy bastard."
