Is it possible to be an obsessive compulsive and be a pack rat at the same time? Seriously, I try to get organized all the time, and I'm totally NUTS about it like an obsessive/compulsive. Then I get distracted and don't finish what I started but I never throw anything away, I just can't! Am I crazy or just strange? Should I be medicated because there MUST be a pill for this, there's one for everything else lol Annie

Lol, I'd like to think this is just the product of an overactive mind, as I am exactly the same! I'm crazily focussed on an activity or project, then all of a sudden I'm zooming around doing other things, and it gets abandoned, but always 'put away to finish later'. I think it's normal, and certainly not worth medicating over. I normally go back to things after a healthy amount of time and convince myself to let it go. You should practice this =D
