Giving away everything.

Is there such a thing in OCD, or any other mental illness that is about giving things away. I have always had that problem, amongst other things, and it has driven my wife and son nuts.

It doesn't matter how rich or poor a person is, or if I know them or don't. I tend to want to give them things of mine I think will be used for their lives.

It is a full on impulse. I have even given away my wife's and son's things, then they get really upset. Rightfully so I suppose. It is insane but it has been with me since I was a child. I used to tell myself I am being generous but in reality I am being just plain foolish.

Then I hoard things to boot.
