Hello everybody, I'm new!
I've just been made a member by the good pro, so here comes my introduction. I'm a Swede, closing on to the fifthies, married and working as a technical writer. I've felt miserably for most of my life without ever knowing why. I've had few friends, few romantic encounters but does usualy perfom well at work.
I've have just begun (read half) to read Mallinger's Too Perfect, and have found.... ME.......
I wouldn't say that everything fits, but a damned lot, even the true or fictional encounters with his patients. So I have realized that I'm a perfectionist that lives in the future or dwells past mistakes, which give me anxiety, I have control issues, committment issues that makes me ponder upon my current marriage (we've ben together for eight years now, I've got a tuff woman that loves me and understands my problems thank God). I procastinate in order to avoid decision making to avoid making the wrong decisions, and I avoid being exact in my statements also to avoid being wrong.
I've been really low these last weeks until I found this website and made the decision to go to my doctor (today) to get some medication to help me deal with my issues, while I try to use some good methods to take back my life from the perfectionist deamon...
Nice to be here and best regards!
