Why does OCD have such a negative connotation??

The Count
The Count's Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

It started with a simple affection for counting and the terror it induced in others, didn't it? But now it's turned into a full-blown life-consuming chaotic nightmare of order, repetition, zealousness, and perfectionism. You used to be so grand, but now you find yourself obsessively worrying over the littlest things--like, maybe if you don't check the light switch at least once every two minutes, the electricity will go out (and damn it, you're a vampire--that shouldn't be a problem!), or maybe if you don't wash your hands until your seams are coming out, you'll get some fatal disease. Get yourself some treatment.

Yeah, so, I like things neat and organized. I re-arrange the silverware in the dishwasher because Sweetpea doesn't put it in correctly. I love the phrase "A place for everything and everything in it's place". I've mopped the kitchen floor three times in the last three days. (At least I used a mop - my mom does her floor every night on her hands and knees with a wet rag! I "come by it honest" - as Jen would say.) I have been known to scrub the bathroom floor by hand.

I don't see that there's anything wrong with that. Have a very happy Thanksgiving. I hope nobody spills gravy on your tablecloth!!

Too funny! I just took the quiz: I'm Cookie Monster's bulimia nervosa. Figures! Your Count's OCD thing is starting to scare me. ;-) I think you would faint if you ever came to my house. My motto is as long as the Dep't of Health isn't condemning the place yet, it's all good. (I saw you shudder. ;-)) Time to check on that turkey now... Happy Thanksgiving to you! :-)

LOL You're totally fine and normal, lots of people like everything in its place. It's when it starts to get out of control that it's a problem. It becomes negative when it starts to affect, (and then take over) your every thought, and therefore your life. Thank goodness for knitting, which takes my ticks and thurns them into something productive. That's what I'll be thankful for this Thanksgiving...I hope you're having a good one!
