Word of the Moment: Obsessive

Obsessive, as defined by

  1. being, pertaining to, or resembling an obsession: an obsessive fear of illness.
  2. causing an obsession.
  3. excessive, esp. extremely so.
  1. someone who has an obsession or obsessions; a person who thinks or behaves in an obsessive manner."

Obsessive, as defined by Chic and Charming:
  1. Adrian Monk
  2. Sophia
Example: A few months ago Sophia's ancient desktop died, taking with it a library of 4,000 songs which were only backed up her iPod. Lately Sophia's iPod has been making a scary clicking noise, which gadget guru Marilyn reports is the first sign that the iPod will soon die. Sadly, said iPod is so far gone that the only way to recover the songs using Media Widget is to import them into iTunes one at a time. It is 12 am...guess why Sophia is still awake...

Oh, Sophia!
I would diagnose that as a reactive obsession. The grief process for I-Pod and Desktop will take time. When a great loss occurs symptoms of guarding what you love are natural and normal. :)
