After lurking for a while I feel like a freak.
I think I have the opposite problem that most of you seem to have, I am a compulsive neat freak. I literally get anxious if things are not just right in our home. I will not allow piles of anything (paper, laundry, books and magazines, etc) to accumulate because it causes me huge anxiety. I am working with my doctor about this, she wants me to lower my standards, but I can't see how this is going to happen. Any suggestions?
