My ring is identical to that last one you posted without the knife edge as well and it has a princess cut diamond and it’s platinum.  My Fiance got it on Blue Nile, they have a lot of basic bands on there.  I didn’t want a flashy band either because I wanted my diamond to stand out not the band.

Welcome to the bee and congratulations on your upcoming wedding.

I do have to make a comment about your handle and please know I am not trying to be snarky or stir the pot, but I would like to point out that some people, including myself may take offense to your name.

OCD is a very serious mental illness that can have a grave effect on someone’s life and is nothing to be made light of.  I know that many people in pop culture like to use the term to describe being anal, or super organized etc, but that is belittling to the people who have, or know and love people actually suffering from this serious disorder.

You wouldn’t (I hope) create a handle like Mrs. Manic Depressive,  Mrs. Bipolar or Mrs. Schitzophrenia.  Why is Mrs. OCD ok?  It is just the same – a  mental illness that ruins some people’s and families’ lives.

I’m sure you meant to harm or ill intent, but to those of us suffering from OCD or the like, it is offensive.

There is nothing cute or funny about OCD.

I love how some of the rudest comments are always prefaced with “don’t take this the wrong way” or “i don’t mean to but rude, but….”  

NapaBride, had you even considered that maybe she had OCD? She could be making light of a condition. But you didn’t even consider it. PLEASE, I love the website because it normally doen’t have any rude comments, and I understand that you have it, but you also said you know people use it as a common phrase so if you know that, you should just accept it, because you being rude to everyone who improperly uses the term OCD, won’t stop others.   Pick your battles and more people will like you.

 

Ms. OCD, Cute post!!!

I actually DID consider that she might have OCD, but reading her post it’s clear that she does not, as she mentioned she is OCD about this and that.  OCD is not a trait, rather an illness.  You are not ‘OCD” about things, Rather, you “have” OCD.

An analogy would be to say something is retarded or gay.  People commonly use those terms, but they are usually not meaning that something is ACTUALLY retarded or homosexual.  And throwing those terms around is offensive and makes light of real problems people have.

I love how you are flaming me for pointing out that the name is offensive to those with mental illness and not the person who chose her handle to be Ms. [insert mental illness here in a ha ha cute way].

I hope that people show you the same sensitivy and respect that you are showing to me and all people that suffer from illness out of their control.  Should you have a child with OCD or retardation some day, I am PRETTY SURE you won’t appreciate people going around joking about it.

How can you flame someone that has suffered beyond belief with OCD for being offended?? Amazing.

Napabride I felt the same uneasieness when reading Ms. OCD’s post.  As someone who knows a few people with the disorder, it is something incredibly debilitating and truly lifealtering in every way: jobs, school, relationships, physical and emotional health, etc.

While I want to welcome Ms. OCD, I too think it is a bit mean.  There are instances of obsessive compulsive traits, but like Napa said, I don’t think someone would come on here and pick Ms. Manic Depressive or Ms. Borderline or something, unless they really had it… but then again it’s not something to make light of.  It’s one thing to joke and make light of one’s own condition, but quite another if you put it so lightly as to render the entire disorder a joke, or something cute and harmless.

I’m also concerned by your choice of name.  I don’t think you meant any harm by it, but it’s inappropriate.  It’s like calling yourself “Mrs. Alcoholic” because you go out and party a lot, or “Mrs. Leukemia” because you’re really pale.  Why not create a new one and repost?

Welcome to Weddingbee Ms. OCD, we’re usually a nicer bunch. There is a thread around here about all non diamond engagement rings. I’m sure you can find some inspiration.
