    Hi LizF1980, welcome to the forum.  I'm impressed, you described the whole experience of having OCD for many of us so well and expressively!

    Hi all of you.  Just wanted to randomly say how's it going?  Have you been able to get an appointment yet, Froststep?

    Oops - on re-reading, I've just realised that this particular thread WAS in fact a somewhat different question.  Well, I think not getting worked up about bad situations generally, or not feeling anxious about your OCD thoughts (as you mentioned on another thread) is just a sign that you

    No, you're not overstepping at all.  There's the "Coffee break" forum where we sometimes talk about all kinds of things like that, have you seen that?
