Our expert says:
Short of OCD, which is a significant disorder, some of us have an obsessive personality ( part of life's rich patterns, and most of us have a personality of some sort, after all ! ) And we vary somewhat in WHAT we tend to be obsesive about. Only if the obsessiveness significantly interferes with someone's ability to function well in work or personal life, might it be a disorder.
Does SHE consider that this is a problem ? Does it cause problems for her which she recognizes ? If so, maybe it'd help for her to be persuaded to see a shrink for assessment and advice as to whether treatment would be worth considering.
As it is, you are probably lucky to have in your company someone who a few decades ago would have been considered "house-proud" and considered a paragon !
