Right, off to Nottingham OCD Support Group this evening. I always know I am back in Nottingham because five minutes walking through the two and the ever present whiff of dope is evident lol

    You have to budget Phili. We've talked about this a lot in the past.....about steadily saving a contingency fund so that when unexpected things (like vet bills) happen, you don't find yourself in dire straits

    The trouble is we seem to be constantly paying out for things. My OT does budgeting so maybe she can help.

I wake up this morning and Victoria Wood has died, check at lunchtime and WWE Chyna has died, check at tea time and Prince has died. What the heck is going on?

    Phili - I had no idea about Prince until I read this - so sad - not my cup of tea but a lot of people loved him and he was just too young.

    2016 is quite a year. Not good for tying into OCD coincidences. This sort of thing used to be a major spike for me. Poor Prince

    "Beat me on the bottom with the Womans Weekly".....wonderful line, always makes me smile. A life well-lived that has left her footprint indelibly imprinted. What better legacy? RIP

    Thank you all. It's a huge weight off my shoulder. I feel great and have had two wonderful nights of sleep. Won't be on here for a while, but all is well.

    Apparently only 41 attempts but hey, that is just astonishing. Klopp's team have really got his system now!

    Ashley, you should go to a gig some time. When the music is so good, the OCD is relegated for a while

Phobic of chemicals and dirt. Dirt is everywhere. Washing clothes too often again. Must feel the fear but do anyway. Living with my folks is tough as they don't worry about the things that worry me.

I want another cat but my brother says no. He wont hear of it but I desperately want another cat.But I also feel guilty for wanting another cat.

    Anne might realise after a while. But she is a dog and dogs are far more interested in their humans attention than most things. I'm glad you want another cat, no matter how much you miss Maiko its so positive to even be thinking about getting a new friend.

    I know, Anne doesn't really get it, thats why being a tad annoyed is so stupid and wrong an makes me feel so wrong.

    You definitely need to leave it a while Phili. Dogs become more affectionate to their owners as a grief response. Anne definitely gets it, don't feel bad.
