Thanks for this Jim Farina.

I think many different types of personalities display OCD traits — bodybuilders, athletes,workaholics, etc.

As you know, it’s only when the symptoms become debilitating to the point that they interfere with normal daily living that medical attention is highly recommended.

If you check out the DSM-IV, or now the DSM-V, the “Bible” for psychiatrists, you’ll come across a host of mental “disorders” and if you spent too much time in there you just might convince yourself of a few other “disorders”.

Appreciate your honesty and transparency in sharing this piece with us.

I’m just off to wash my hands for the 5th time this morning 😆
