    At what point does recycling become an obsession?

    A gentleman I know says his wife devotes so much time to recycling it is interfering with her relationship with him, their children and even neighbors. The last straw, he said, is when she missed a family friend's funeral, to stay at home to divide the compost items from the glass containers. When, in your opinion, does the desire to be recycle-conscientious become an obsession?

    Thats awful beth. Any obsession can get really out of hand and it sounds like this woman really needs help. She must have some underlying problem that she is trying to resolve, sounds like the husband should call someone for her.

      Nell, she's a nice lady, and very intelligent. But I had noticed she had started avoiding practically everyone she used to speak to. You may be right about needing some help.
