I don't think that's called for, especially since I asked a simple question about a particular fragrance, and whether I got a good deal. I consider all of you my friends, but you don't know the whole story of me and who I am. Don't pass such harsh criticism based off little tid bits of what you know of my life from what I post here.
Maz, I really don't think anyone here intended to be mean to you. It may come off as harsh, simply because we're not giving you the answer you wanted to hear, which is sort of odd, considering the answers you got on the previous thread. What you fail to account for is a "friend", if they're good, would tell you what you don't want to hear. You're absolutely right, I don't know your whole life story, though I do remember you telling us a little in the previous thread regarding your father. But, regardless of almost ANY backstory, the behaviour exhibited in both of these threads, are abnormal, for ANYONE. You've explained to us in the first thread, that your wife had a problem with your frag purchases (I don't know if she still does, but that's irrelevant), and you tried to attribute her frustrations to a lack of space to house all of the fragrances, when in actuality it was because she was worried about your compulsive spending. You're lucky that you can afford to purchase these fragrances and watches at the clip you do, could you imagine if you liked to purchase cars? Like I said in my previous post on this thread, I have Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and I suffer from it, it's no joke. Whether you want to continue to deny it or not, there is no backstory that could possible rationalize these compulsions. What you are witnessing is a compulsive action to alleviate what ever anxiety or obsession or whatever else it is that is plagueing you, perhaps you are missing something in your life, that you are making up for with the fragrances. Whatever it is, the reason behind it is not the issue, the issue is the spending, and you need to accept that this isn't "normal" and it is a problem. I promise you, that if you seek professional help, contrary to what you think now, you WILL be happier, and you will be able to cope with whatever demons you have, that we don't know about, in a more responsible, less reckless manner. Whatever path you choose, good luck.
