Thank you both so much.
Yeah sometimes I wonder if the "imaginary" itches I make myself feel somehow *do* become real itches...maybe I'm making my skin twitch so minutely that the itches become real. But of course then I still need to figure out how to not cause them in the first place
If you can ever find that lady's name, it would be interesting to see what she says.
Also is it difficult to get on *partial* disability (as opposed to full disability)? It seems like partial disability would prove that a person *can* actually work, and therefore wouldn't be eligible for any disability at all. I guess I'm more interested in partial disability than full...I think if I could just not work quite as much, and therefore didn't have as much stress, that the OCD would clear up some and I could focus more on trying to combat it.
I have considered simply going part time at my job, because I think I'd still make enough money...but then I would lose my health insurance. I'm assuming disability also kicks in to cover doctors' visits/meds doesn't it?
I'm doing some Google searches for disability and have found some pages I'm looking through...it would be more helpful if these boards allowed links of course
