Do I need pickle rehab?

I just finished my dinner - a simple tuna salad pita sandwich and some cold sides. This humble meal included:

-garlic dills
-pickled okra
-garlic-stuffed olives
-pickled watermelon rind

Additionally, my fridge contains:

-bread and butter slices
-sweet pickle relish
-pickled mushrooms
-pimento-stuffed olives
-Indian mango/lime pickle
-radish kimchi

Is this reasonable, or am I doomed to a life as the crazy pickle lady? I have visions of myself stumbling down an alley wearing a housecoat, barefoot and wild-eyed, clutching a jar of brine...

If you can't reassure me, at least share your stash of brined & fermented goods so I don't feel so alone.
