Since my last post I have e-mailed the Westwood Institute for Anxiety Disorders, Inc. (their website is here
) to see if head injuries can cause OCD. I hope to hear back from them soon. I do not know why this is bugging me so much lately. I really wish it would stop since I have to remain focused on finishing a lab report by Monday. It is going well so far, so it stands to reason that it will be finished by Monday (assuming my partner has done his end of the work.)
To answer your question Evol, no I have not mentioned this to my aunt. She works in radiology. From what I have seen of her work, she mostly does x-rays of kids' hands and other body parts to check if the bones are broken, fractured, etc. I do not think that telling her about this would be that helpful, and most of the time I can ignore the sensation. Also, she was already scared to death that she "broke her nephew" when it first happened. Bringing this up may not be the best idea since she is currently dealing with a lot of stress over her sons.
It probably would be a good idea to see if there is some service available on-campus where I can talk to someone or start getting help. I will send my CA an e-mail about this after I finish my lab report. I am surprised I did not come up with that idea on my own.
