OT - From ADHD to OCD
Ok while this is not actually true this was certainly my thought this weekend. FD has gone from ADHD to OCD in less than 2 years.

The ball return at bowling drove FD absolutely insane. The fact that the ball would randomly go right or left and "our" balls kept getting mixed up with the other lane. Little miss perfectionist kept moving the balls around to be in the correct order and then lining up the holes so they all faced the correct direction. All of this while everyone continued to bowl so more and more balls kept coming. It was quite a picture, FD at 7 is tiny 55" and 52 lbs, constinatly trying to rearrange bowling balls weighing 6-12lbs.

I sat back and watched the show thinking how much she has changed since she has been with me.
Sounds like she might be showing some OCD signs. Has she been diagnosed? Are they working on desensitization?

My DH has struggled for years with this. feel free to PM me if you need suggestions on living with "one of them" Smile
My 6 yr old would do that too. She is on the Autism spectrum though...not OCD. She would be more worried about the balls being on HER side of the tray than actually bowling. God forbid if anyone would touch one of our balls, and NO WAY is anyone going to bowl with someone elses ball......

My husband has OCD. He has it under control though, doesn't even have to take meds anymore. I dunno if Id say that was OCD behavior, but I guess it could be.

Im sure it was amusing to watch though. I have to laugh at some of the things Rose does sometimes.
ADHD & anxiety/OCD issues sometimes present in the same way.

I had a kiddo that had been on ADHD meds for 7 years...didn't have it. Totally Anxiety related.

Same experience here. I was put on ritalin when I was a kid, although I did not have ADHD, just anxiety. Sad to hear this still happens.
