  • The fine line the parent walks

    We had an incident yesterday trying to buy clams at the grocery store. There was a certain type of clam for sale that grossed us both out. But the person with OCD was then not able to eat dinner.

    The parent walks such a fine line. On the one hand, I feel a lot of empathy for his suffering, but on the other hand, it's not therapeutic ("good for him") to protect him too much from the things that trigger his OCD. I'm supposed to allow him to be exposed gradually to the things that pique the OCD; it's hard to know how much is too much, and how much is just right. I guess one could call this the parental version of Just Right OCD. That is my intrusive thought.

    I have successfully produced an apostrophe! (Maybe because I rebooted my computer yesterday.) Let's see if I can get some other features to work. Gary, since there's apparently no one else for me to test with, can you dialogue with me, and then I can try quoting you?

      Quoting me! I have nothing much to say... Still no thanks and/or likes option,,, at least there's one smiley that works.
      I really can't wrap my mind around the fact the admins have not done or posted anything in all this time. Without even updates in the moderator or MVP section you and I are simply left in the dark since the switch. There aren't many features working here sadly

        Let's see if I can get the quote to work.

        I forgot to tell you, I tried clicking where it says "contact us" (bottom right) when my apostrophes, etc., were killing all my posts. Nothing happened. So sad.

          Okay, now I'm going to experiment with an attachment.

          The tic checklist that I found at the Tourette Canada website before it was <s>decimated</s> revamped a couple years ago:

            works for me get a contact form clicking on the link

            clicking on bottom right corner of attachment also zooms in or out that seems to work...

            Seems like we have our own little chat room LMFO

            edit again: not really funny though when you think of it.

              Tricky. And the results are not beautiful -- I don't like the redundancy and I don't know how to get rid of it.

                  works for me get a contact form clicking on the link
                  I get the form, but the fact is that I filled it out at least a week ago but no one seems to be monitoring.

                  Now I will try flagging a post to request moderator intervention. I will flag my own.

                  Excuse to flag: something outrageous, let's see, [generic insult of someone's mother]

                            But since you're the only moderator left... wouldn't it be up to you to do something if a post was flagged? I'm just a little MVP here
