Hey Amelia,

I hear what you are saying. Though you have to consider that these experts believe in it so much of course they will do whatever they can to document evidence to back up what they believe. Besides, they are making money off of this.

How can you deny psychology but not challenge OCD as a diagnosis that stands alone in it's root causes. It's just OCD!! that's all, we were born with it!!! It just sounds very simplistic to me. Life, our psyche, our emotions, and human existence is hardly ever that simple.

Sorry if I'm coming on a bit strong. I don't know why you would have a problem with someone sharing their opinion/theories. BTW, I have worked with a very well respected clinical psychologist for years. She has a phd and does forensic work for Fairfax, Co. Police, just outside of Washington, D.C.. This is not just MY theory. I also have had conversations with my psychology professors about this and other things like ADHD. They all agree that these diagnosis are not that simple. The consensus is that OCD, Anxiety, Depression, all go hand in hand. They also agree that most disorders develop form the bio-psycho-social dynamic. You are not simply born with OCD. It just is not that simple and it never will be. Yes some people are more prone to develop symptoms of OCD as a result of other issues. Did it not make any sense to you that OCD is a manifestation of other underlying problems and is a way of distracting from those problems. God I just don't understand why people don't want to face the truth. I take that back, I do understand. No one wants to deal with anything that may be complicated and painful. So, the nice experts out there simplify things for us so we won't lose our minds any more than we already have. It's kinda nice, but it won't allow us to make true progress in the long run.

Sorry Amelia, we will just have to agree to disagree on this one. I could get just as irritated with you for having the reaction you had to what I said. Actually, I did get a bit irritated. You took my two cents way too personally. JMO.

I actually agree with you as far as garnet doing what he can to educate himself and protect himself. If he has schizophrenia in his family, maybe he should be concerned. He should do what he can to make sure what he is experiencing is not the beginning of psychosis and figure out what he can do to possible prevent psychosis from developing.

Garnet you are a he are you not? Sorry if you are a she...
