Not sure if I'm obsessive compulsive but I made this website in my teens where I take a song and listen to it over and over until I learn how to play it as accurately as possible on my guitar.  I show other musicians how to play it using a type of music transciption called tablature.  I've done over a 100 songs and each song averages about 3 hours.  I am obsessed with them being accurate because the more accurate it is the better I can see the creativity of the song and the artists that did them.  How much detail they put into it.  When I do these songs and get them right I feel empowered and relaxed.  And it makes me feel good to show other people the creativity these artists put into their songs and what I feel when I play them right.  

http://www.geocities.com/tabevolution

I don't work on them anymore but I feel stronger when I do or when I'm doing something creative like writing a song or even just doing math problems.  I start to feel kinda insecure when I am not putting my mind to work.  I can get really sick actually, my head starts to hurt.  The diet helps greatly, though.  

Oh yeah, I also wrote a book, music book, that took me about 3 months and I got sick and never sold it or got it published.  It's extremely detailed and accurate.

I bet it would sell.  See if you can self-publish (it's not hard to do) and sell them on e-bay.

Cool, thanks Lola, I'm getting all the info on my book so that I can determine costs.  The book is ready for small scale publishing, I have my own publishing company, "Good Ol' Guitar" Music Publishing Company.  Well that's the name for now, got everything I need to print around ten copies, so I'll put it on E-bay soon to start off and then go from there.  Thanks again.

The need for a creative outlet is a typical Teacher trait as is being detail oriented. Learning that made me feel good. Of course I work really hard at trying to  be reasonable too.  

Looking forward to hearing more about the book

Well, here's my thought.  Forget the OC name or whatever other label.  You are special.  I believe you were created as a one and only and this lumping of people together is usually to give something a name so the psychiatrists can prescribe drugs, or other doctors too.  Like Chronic Fatigue.  It means they have no idea why you're tired.  But they'll give you some drugs for it because it's got a name.  

You are gifted.  I am a musician also.  I have dabbled in tableture as far as reading it goes.  But I'm a lazy musician.  I'm self taught and never went as far as you.  I can hear songs and figure them out, but it makes sense to have a written description of what's actually going on, and it's a blueprint of the music (I realize that's for guitars).  I also applaud your efforts.  Most of my ambitions and "talents" have turned to raising my kids the best I can and cooking and eating as healthy as we can.  After that, I don't have much energy left over at present.  Maybe that will change someday.

BTW, sorry I called you "she" in the other thread.

*lol*   I annoy my husband a lot by my OCD--he's a B and has little rhyme or reason (IMO) for what he does.  I understand your hesitation to use such a term, ABNW, but......at the same time, is there another way to say it?  My OCD has gotten a lot better.  I still tap my fingers and toes without realizing it.  Drives DH crazy.  Usually I do it at night when I can't wind down.  DH tells me to move over.     When I was little, if I'd walk past a chair on the way to somewhere and accidentally brush my arm on it, I'd have to turn around and brush the other arm (either right then or next time I passed it) so my sides would be even.  I was so obsessed with having my body symmetrical that I couldn't part my  hair on the side.  I'd part it down the middle or make sure my bangs were perfectly straight down.  I wouldn't wear a shirt with one pocket--only one with none or two, so my sides would be even.  It was so overwhelming that I'd go out of my way to make sure both sides were even.  If I accidentally scuffed one foot on the ground while I was walking, I'd scuff the other one so they'd be even.   So glad I'm over that.

ABNW, thank you for saying this: "Most of my ambitions and "talents" have turned to raising my kids the best I can and cooking and eating as healthy as we can.  After that, I don't have much energy left over at present.  Maybe that will change someday."  I've been struggling with that lately and need to turn my heart "back toward home."  I've been spending too much time trying to do creative things to help with the income.  Maybe I just need to concentrate on my children.

I guess I had some mannerisms that may be called OCD that only I knew about. I think diet & supplements helped along with spiritual & emotional health.  The "OCD" was mostly in my later teens thru early 30s on & off. I can barely remember it.
I'm sure that B vitamins & magnesium help.

Why would tapping your fingers and feet be OCD?  I do it too sometimes.  I used to do it more.  I just call it energy. It might be "nervous" energy.  I don't know.

And ribbit, I'm sure you're doing just fine.  I hear you about using brain power for money.  I think everyone has to do that.  Unless you are Paris Hilton or something. Sounds to me like you are a proverbs 31 woman.  But God is the provider, no need to worry. He clothes the flowers, and knows when the sparrow falls.  And he knows every hair on your head.  If he cares for those little things, he will care for your well being.  Food, roof, clothing.  It's not always how WE want it, but he will supply our needs.  I know you know all that.  I'm just saying....

I'm not worried about money, I just feel more useful if I'm bringing in something.  I talked with a couple of ladies from church yesterday long and hard about it and we all agreed that I have plenty of time in the future, when the children are older, to do something lucrative.  Right now I can be creative for fun, when I have the time.  I think I'm going to slow down a little.

Anyway, tapping fingers and toes is what we in the psychology world call "self-stimulatory behavior."  It's a habit that you just do, over and over, and somehow it calms you.  Some people chew their nails.  My sister used to chew her hair.  My daddy rocks back and forth ever so slightly.  I rock too sometimes.  And I tap.  If I'm not tapping my fingers or toes I'm tapping my teeth together.

Me too!  But not for the pockets or the part in my hair.

Also when I was little, I used to sit on the couch, lean forward, and then lean back into the back of the couch, bouncing off the back a little, over and over.  It's like rocking only I wasn't in a rocking chair!  Even now, I love rocker/recliner chairs.  I can sit and rock in them for hours, reading a good book or watching TV.  I also bounce my knee a lot...like I noticed I was doing just now.

DH and I call that "wiggly leg".  On the BTD he actually has the ability to sit still (if he tries), but in the past he would always have it.
