My wife's OCD behaviour has taken on a new twist . If I am making a coffee or tea and I ask her if she would like one she now almost always says 'no" but the moment I sit down with mine she says she has changed her mind and would like one .Once , I can cope with easily , twice is mildly annoying, three times is getting to be irritating and four times the cat is in danger of being launched into orbit . There is an answer to this I thought to myself- just make her one when you have one -problem solved. Like hell it is ! "Why did you make me a tea when I didn't ask for one - I don't want one ".Ok tip it away and sit to drink tea - " I've changed my mind" screeeeeeeeeech stamp feet have an apoplectic fit - cat has disappeared in double quick time . All day long summoned to pick up this or find that -"that's not what I meant " - I know she can't find the right words so we both get totally exasperated.Then there 's the TV - she gets the wrong day and time and can't understand why she can't watch a particular program which has either been and gone or is not on for another three days and no she can't watch a recording of it because it hasn't been on yet - try to work out how to explain that when at the end of your erudite explanation the answer is " yes but I want to watch it now " .When finally we get something on she either falls asleep or gets up and rearranges her bed over and over again looking as though she is about to topple over . On top of that two falls - so as you have probably gathered its been a bad day today. Going to bed -an extremely grumpy Georgepa
