I had a strange email in my inbox this morning..

Subject: I have OCD and need help
Date: Tue, 26 Mar 2002 13:46:04
From: “John XXXXXX”
To: myemail@work.com

I’ve read books, done therapy, and consulted with many for over 16 years without any substantial progress. Among other problems, I need to deal with a mental compulsion to break apart words and phrases into symmetrical groups, the continual counting and sorting of everything I see, and the uncontrollable parade of ideas in my head competing for attention. This interferes with concentration, impairs decision-making, and leads to frustration and depression.

I would welcome suggestions, possible solutions, reference materials, referrals, anything you might recommend. Please email me at user@domain.net

Thank you for your help.




I did a Google Search for OCD and found out that it stands for “obsessive compulsive disorder”. This page at health-center.com has an explanation of the disorder. I don’t know why John picked out my work address, although it’s easy to find (google for Donncha O Caoimh) but I’ll reply with the google search.
