I cant stop.
Uhg!!! Everyday I deal with this lately. I have several obsessions though this is just one of many.
It makes me feel like a bad person. I always look at people and think oh it looks like they could have somthing nasty.

I know its the OCD but I still feel bad.
Hey, I can relate to this, but I know why....About 2 months ago, my 8 year old son got it from school and of course brung it home where my other 2 kids got it, and even me, and it was my first time ever getting it! The crap was hard to get rid of, and with the way I am about cleaning (you replied to that post) it really botered me that I couldnt get rid of it....Now I want to do a lice check when company comes in my door, but how dumb would I feel then?
