Thanks for that, mummytosteven – v interesting. I had no idea it was common.

mummytosteven Thu 07-Apr-05 21:26:53

yes, I didn't think it was as high as 2/3%.

I think I have come to the conclusion this is what I have.

Thank you for that MTS.

and credit to yoyo as well to pointing my way to it.

there's an excellent book on the subject of OCD/unpleasant thoughts called "The Imp of the Mind" by Lee Baer that I've got. CAT me if you would like to borrow it from me. (it is quite easy to order from amazon).

I managed to CAT you in the end MTS, for some reason it wouldn't send e-mail.

MTS - pleased you found this interesting. I read it again last night as I hadn't appreciated the link between PND and OCD before.
