[ ADD ME ]


I am 60 years old and was diagnosed with OCD in my early 30's. My OCD was extremely severe, along with major depression and eventually, I had to go on disability. I was previously a successful legal assistant. I have one son, who is all grown up. He's an only child and his father is deceased, so I'm basically all the family he has. If it weren't for him, I would have given up trying by now.

I'm pretty quiet and listen more than talk in social situations - basically I'm very shy and an introvert. My husband is the complete opposite and he finds it very hard to understand my OCD. (We've only been married 13 years.) I'll probably be the only one who doesn't make any friends on this site!


Sunny days, dogs, especially mine! Diet Coke, watching NCIS and Big Bang Theory on TV.

Bossy, arrogant people. People who don't "believe in OCD". Rainy, cold days. Wintertime. Large groups of strangers - being thrown into social situations with them, especially.

My mouth is much better. Thank you for asking. Today is the first day it didn't hurt. I have a recheck on Thursday and I am also taking Joe to my dentist cause he needs a root canal now. Sadly he has inherited my teeth. Of course he also loves candy as much as I do. I broke down and bought a box of milk duds today. Shhh...

So how did you survive Easter Sunday and Black Tuesday? Things are settling down a little here, which just means I need to get back on track with housework and the exposures that that entails. Any progress with the computer stuff? I've done nothing more than partially back mine up, but it's really starting to look like I'd better hurry before this old machine completely gives up the ghost.

Black Tuesday again? Hope things go smoothly. I have been doing a bit of yard work, and spending about two hours in the afternoon to walk down to the kids' school and then walk home with them. The walk down alone only takes about half an hour, but it is the walk home that takes up all the time. It is just as well, because if they took the bus we would be home watching TV probably. This way we get a long walk outside. Rick is supposed to show up here today to do some work on the fence for Star and to repair a couple of small window panes that are busted. Did you see the gallery picture of me with Otis?

And the highway signs say we're close but I don't read those things anymore I never trusted my own eyes.

Hi Maryanne,

How was your Easter with your "extended" family. Although it must be awkward for you, I guess it's a good thing for Phillip's kids to have both parents sharing the holidays together. I really don't miss family gatherings and was happy to have a quiet day alone. My couch potato days are over and it's back to my routine today. I barely made it thru my 5 mile walk yesterday. So it's back to clearing out my house and walking daily again. And it's time to get off the weight I packed on this winter.

Soft rock, '70's and '80's music. Some classical music for background - I find it soothing.

Anything about Abraham Lincoln - he's my hero! Murder mysteries.

Reading, gardening (flowers), crossword puzzles. Visiting historical homes/landmarks.
