I do, to the extent that bearing witness to certain things is just unbearable and illogical...as if to fall out of line in and of itself is intolerable, despite the lack of a reasson to do so.

If it were rapidly-declining in value, I would sell it, but based upon price movements over the history of the franchise and the patents that the company owns related to the product, I believe that this is an investment with only upward potential.

Needless to say, I would only sell in the event of financial catastrophe.

Re: Ask me about what it is like living with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

Have you seen the first chapter of "From busto to Robusto"?

I think if you had a girl like Zeebo's gf your OCD would dissapear, or at leas your mental health would improve a lot.

Do you think the same?

Re: Ask me about what it is like living with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

What would happen if were on a date with a girl who had OCD at a restaurant and she needed everything at 90 degree angles but you needed everything at 45 degree angles? Would you have her start arranging everything on one side going clockwise while you started on the other side going clockwise and you both just go in a circle for the entire date arranging the stuff on the table?

I hate reading, so I have never read this...but based upon this past experience, I want very little to do with the opposite gender.

SSRIs, or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, are drugs that are obtained via prescription that seek to correct chemical imbalance in order to prevent swings in behavior. People who are depressed, bipolar, and OCD all benefit from these because of their ability to regulate personality extremes, and one of the side effects shows up at the poker table.

The world would be more efficient and straightforward, but society as we know it would be unable to exist. When people would prefer to be alone with their obsessions and devote great amounts of energy towards achieving them, social intertwining would take an obvious backseat.

I get dizzy just thinking about it. Needless to say, it would be a dealbreaker.

Re: Ask me about what it is like living with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

Can you write a non-perfect sentence, i.e. "whats up dogs" instead of "What's up, dogs?" ?
If you can, please do.

Also, ever thought about career as a police investigator?

Sounds like you've misdiagnosed who the prick is in this situation.

Right now, I am turned off my the idea of commitment, but in terms of gender, I have always tried to befriend both males and females equally, despite the fact that I am only attracted to one of these genders sexually.

Re: Ask me about what it is like living with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

OP, you mentioned being an aspie. Do you have any particular fixations? I don't mean in the sense of obsessions, obviously, but I know two brothers diagnosed with Asperger's and they can rattle off almost any statistic in Major US sports from the last 70 years on command. Do you have an area of expertise, or mastery, such as that?

I could like become a PI; as I said, I once caught someone who was stalking me at college simply by doing my own research and linking together circumstantial evidence with individual testimonies...she was floored when I caught her, and thought that the fact that I connected such scattered dots was freaky. Ironic, considering she was stalking me.

Also, just the thought of writing a non-perfect sentence makes me feel "dirty" unless it is absolutely a blatant exhibition of internet slang, like omgwtfbbq or something along those lines.

Man, I LOVE sports...I used to be able to name the starting rotations and lineups of all 30 MLB teams on command, can rattle off offensive linemen on teams I have absolutely no interest in, etc. Sports has always been a major fixation, as has the collectible marketplace. I am a living, walking, breathing price guide.

Re: Ask me about what it is like living with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

I wonder, though, if anyone I actually know on these boards is reading this...and this thought constantly occupies my mind when I am replying to this topic. I mean, I would almost prefer someone to out me in PMs if they know who I am, if only because I am now getting occupied with the idea of actually being comfortable with this aspect of my personality on these boards.
