    Quote from RockmanDoom

    I guess the only thing that I can add is that I have a rare form of OCD (repugnant thought disorder). For this the only real solution is "exposure", allowing the thoughts to happen because trying to suppress them is actually what causes them to reoccur over and over.

    With your girlfriend this doesnt really quite sound like OCD. Although the thoughts are obsessive they dont seem to be related to routine, fear of cleanliness, fear of violence, sexual depravity or blasphemy. It sounds like a response to an extreme fear of death and loss.

    My 2 cents, your girlfriend has death anxiety. The only real way to cope with this is to understand that death is inevitable and part of life and there is nothing to do to control it. A tall order I know.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the reply! I will show her your post and we'll see if we can get something out of it. Thanks again! :)

    Thanks for the long post!

    I failed to mention that this is happening for the last eight months, so it's not that small amount of time. She is very emotional by nature and she always had difficulties with doing something for herself, she always focused on doing something that will be better for others. I always thought that if she could change those things in her life, that she would feel better.

    I am not looking for help nor sympathy. I was asking if anyone had experience with these things, and if anyone did, I just thought they could share it. That is all.

    You don't have to tell me that this is a gaming web site, I've been here longer than both of you.

    Greetings!

    My girlfriend's grandmother recently passed away, and it left a huge emotional scar on her. Since then, she started to have these intrusive thoughts about her best friend from high school and college. The thoughts themselves are of obsessive nature. She's constantly on her mind, and when I say constantly, I literally mean 24h a day. I would like to mention that her friend was getting a lot on her nerves lately due to her friend's competing nature, and that she was jealous of everything that was happening in my girlfriend's life.

    Now imagine that after all that, you start to have thoughts about her that are basically telling you that you can't live without her and that she is someone very important in your life. My girlfriend and I are now eight years in a relationship, and she never had any doubt about her sexuality. But nowadays, she's constantly panicking and questioning her sexuality, and all because of those obsessive thoughts.

    I just wanted to ask if anyone has had experience with this disorder, or knows someone who has? I will appreciate any help or advice.

    I just wanted to add that she visited the psychiatrist four times, but to no avail. She has a scheduled appointment with a psychologist next month and we'll see how that will turn out.

    posted a message on Maltheal not Death? Lore Speculation (Spoilers?)
    At the end of the cinematic, Tyrael says to Malthael: "The Nephalem...will...stop YOU!" and Malthael responds: "No one...can stop...DEATH!" which implies that Malthael is indeed the personified Death, if you will.

    The expansion is called Reaper of Souls, and it seems that our title character is Malthael, because he's the Angel of Death. He reaps souls. At the end of the cinematic, he takes the Black Soulstone, which contains guess what...souls - seven of them. His cause could be just, which is why Tyrael's sword didn't hurt him. He wants to destroy the souls of the seven Lords of Hell. But of course, something will go wrong. :P Perhaps Malthael himself will consume the souls from the Soulstone, and then he will become Tathamet incarnate. Ahhhhh, speculations, speculations, speculations...

    Battle.net is down for maintenance, I guess they will fix this! This is why they should have made the single play offline. I payed for this game, and I can't play it now when I have the time, especially because it's Sunday.

    "There was an error retrieving achievements data."

    All of my achievements are gone, and I can't earn new ones. :( This is the second time it happened to me.

    Since he has tendril-like wings, it looks like it's him in the last cinematic where Tyrael becomes Wisdom.

    He has an ingame model (as in non-cinematic) shown in the art book, so I assume he's part of the game *somehow*. Wonder what happens to him though... Dead? Traitor? Just MIA?

    Pretty, shiny scans or it didn't happen! :P
    Nothing shiny but half-assed celphone pic incoming. :P

    [edit] Okay, I'm an idiot. The one in the artbook is Itherael... Mixed up their looks. :-(

    That's the spirit! :)
