I find that what might be called obsessive compulsive disorder applies to my work and other competitive situations. For instance, I labor intensively to the point of being limited to part time workaholism, but with great efficiency and output. I will also edit my writing, always starting at the beginning, so I check the earlier part of a paper considerably more than the later. Do you find yourself experiencing the symptoms of mental illness, but muted enough so they encourage productivity, not illness? How many of us (e. g., physicists) are "Touched with Fire" (benefited from a biochemical brain disorder) as the title of a popular book by Kay Redfield Jamison suggests? Do medicines support or interfere with your creativity?
