What ails you
do you suffer from a chronic shopping problem? pick your insanity* (or id a new one - i am adding them as they occur to me throughout the day):
multiple personality disorder - you veer from one extreme to another and your many parts do not come together to form a coherent whole.
hallucinations - something looks good in the store mirror, but inexplicably wrong at home; or seemed like a good idea when you clicked "buy" but seems utterly unappealing when it arrives.
obsessive-compulsive disorder - particular to the point where it interferes with your happiness/satisfaction with anything; or you refuse to try something new, always going to the same stores, looking at the same styles.
attention deficit disorder - you have an idea of what you need or want one minute, and then completely lose focus and get sidetracked by something else entirely.
kleptomaniac - (self-explanatory.)
paranoia - also known as insecurititis - you "can't pull a certain look off" or generally lack the confidence to buy what you are actually drawn to.
xenophobia - fear of trying something new.
claustrophobia - fear of dressing rooms, or small boutiques.
hypochondria - hung up on imagined personal physical flaws
depression - nothing in your closet ever satisfies you or seems quite right.
* a light-hearted post; i do not mean to mock mental illness.
