"MENTAL FLOTSAM"
by JTK.CA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I may look normal to you, but I am disabled. I have an invisible disability, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), invisible that is, unless you're paying close attention to things like my obsessive checking of the table, chairs, and under them, when I leave a restaurant, to make sure I've not left anything behind. The cannister of moist towelettes that accompanies me everywhere is probably a dead giveaway too.

I used to also be tormented a lot by obsessive thoughts repeating themselves over and over again, however, I've come up with a technique that "usually" helps me conquer them. You know the floaters that you notice every once in a while, in the middle of your visual field, just sort of floating around without a care in the world, not realizing those little debris flotsam are annoying the heck out of you? Well, I keep my obsessive mental ramblings from getting me down by saying, "It's just MENTAL FLOTSAM," and going about my day. It really helps me, and I hope it helps you too, whether or not you have OCD. Next time you can't get that song out of your head, just remind yourself that, like those floaters on your eye, that song obstructing your other thoughts is "just mental flotsam." Then, with the attitude adjustment, the song may leave you alone, because you've refused to let it torture you. It's like James 4:7 (KJV) says, "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." (http://bible.cc/james/4-7.htm)
