Horrible feeling of dread. Sitting with it. Sad tired and intrusive 'what if' worries. Blah.

    I raised awareness with my chiropodist.Turns out she has a friend at work she thinks has what she now understands to be prefectionism OCD so she will talk to her and suggest she gets help.

    I find the more people I talk to about OCD the more they or their friends need help - often with anxiety but sometimes OCD.

Almost 2 weeks since I last visited here. Nothing to report. I'm twiddling thumbs each day at home. Good news is though, I'm no worse.

Hi all, unfortunately I didn't win the award at work but I was one of 29 finalists from 90 nominees so I got through the first heat without even knowing! Thank you for voting for me, it was very much appreciated :)

I'm convinced I saw Gary Oldman driving a Honda Civic in Worthing. Possibly.

Questionnaire question: What needs to change to allow this (resolution) to happen? A lot. My whole mind-set. Possibly a miracle too.
