Ohseedeeder

Created by: deanliddell

Pronunciation: oh-see-deed-hur

Sentence: Frank could never adjust to eating oat cereal and drinking coffee in the morning. The former was in hopes of lowering his cholesterol and the later was a bad habit. In combination these made him spend so much time in his morning constitution that he was always late for work. It never dawned on him to get up earlier, or just stop his bad habit.

Etymology: A phonetic variant of OCD, obsessive compulsive disorder, and a flippant reference to a serious psychological conditon where one persists in repetitive behaviors and mental acts that are not realistic to reduce their levels of stress and anxiety.
