Mindfulness for OCD

From the new Mindfulness Workbook for OCD, by Jon Hershfield and Tom Corboy, here's a linked chapter about Relationship OCD (hit "click here to read an excerpt").  What's Relationship OCD? From the excerpt:
ROCD is difficulty in tolerating uncertainty about the quality of a relationship and the genuineness of your feelings about another person. This isn’t the typical doubt you might expect when, say, one person is ready for marriage and the other isn’t. This is the kind of doubt that seeps in insidiously and chips away at the very concept of love and fidelity. 
Much more about using mindfulness-based CBT to take on OCD symptoms in the workbook.

Relationship Worksheets

A "Relationship Worksheet" sits deep in a long list of questionnaires, worksheets, and infosheets available from CMHAMJ (that's the Canadian Mental Health Association Moose Jaw). Quick sampling:
 1. What qualities first drew me to my partner?
 2. What troubling qualities does my partner have that are similar to my early caretakers?
 3. What qualities does my partner have that I think I lack?
Those three alone could keep you busy for a while.
