15 Ways to Stop Obsessing

It's no secret that I have OCD. I've been on medicine for it since Jesus helped his Father in the carpenter shop. Most of the time, I manage OK. But then some life altering thing like miscarriage, car wreck, cancer, daughter with pseudotumor cerebri or son heading off to Ft. Sill that kicks in one of the characteristics of OCD...obsessing.

I just love Therese J. Borchard who runs the blog Beyond Blue that I list in my sidebar. She keeps it real and that includes about herself and her mental struggles.

I just read 15 Ways to Stop Obsessing http://www.beliefnet.com/Health/Emotional-Health/Bipolar/15-Ways-to-Stop-Obsessing.aspx on her blog and I think it's a must read for everyone because, card carrying OCD member or not, we all tend to obsess at times when Life's problems come into our lives.

And if you're the lucky one who doesn't get dumped on by the Life Fairy, send me your address because I want to come and sit next to you and feel your bliss.

Do NOT sit next to me. I suspect the Twomey family may have a contagious dose of BADLUCKITIS or BLACKCLOUDHOVERINGABOVEOURHEADSITIS

Either way, we are not free of crap to obsess/stress over.
