    I think some of us all have a little bit of OCD. I do this with the what did I leave on in the kitchen? Reminded me of the show Girls.

      Sally–

      I agree that lots of folks think they have a touch of OCD when they worry about leaving the stove on or if they unplugged the blender. But I actually think that’s just the cost of multi-tasking. True OCD is characterized by crippling and time-consuming obsessions and rituals designed to counteract those obsessions. These episodes completely disrupt sufferers’ lives. Very few people actually have this disorder–only 1% of the US population. (Lucky me!)

      Good call on the Girls reference. Lena Dunham’s character definitely suffers from OCD.

      Best,

    I love the “cancel cancel” comment Susan said. It can be used for many other things besides OCD. Depression is one of them. As long as we remove the negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts it can help in certain situations. It’s not the cure all, but it helps.
    She also said. “To know me is to love me.” It sounds like you know her very well and love her very much. Keep up the good work you two are doing. And God bless all three of you.
