Letters To Karen: Even Mild OCD Affects Your Family

Dear Karen,

You have been thinking about this for two months now, so it is obviously bothering you.  Everyone knows you are a little obsessive-compulsive and feel most comfortable when everything is in its place.  You have actually gotten much better since the arrival of twins nearly 5 years ago.

So what if your oldest son wrote you a letter in honor of your visit to his class in which the first sentence (out of 3 sentences total) said, "I hope you like how neat my desk is!"?  That does not mean you have driven your son down the road to needing therapy . . . not yet at least.
