I have a weird one, I can't stand having a messy kitchen, It HAS to be spotless. When I'm bored I find myself wandering in there and cleaning everyday. BUT, my room, is a disaster. I couldn't care less how messy it is in there.
Exactly. Contrary to popular, misguided belief, sufferers of OCD aren't quirky neat freaks.
OCD is a disorder, people. It isn't something sufferers like to be heard used as a trendy way to say you have a certain habit.
That's nothing short of infuriating. Depending on the severity of ones Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, it can be quite a nightmare to deal with.
I'm quite sick of seeing it be made into such a joke.
If I'm reading a book, I must always end at a chapter.
My heading and numbers must always be written in a black pen, preferably with gel ink, while everything else is written in pencil. The only exception for this is English, since I don't want my headings or numbers to stand out and look bolded.
Threads like this. Don't self diagnose, see a doctor. I'm going to go and say majority of you don't have OCD, and these are just mild annoyances and habits. Do any of these absolutely impair the way you live your daily life?
Im very OCD when it comes to cleaning the dishes, apart from practicly srubbing the finish of off knives and forks so i can get the dirt of, i also have a compulsion were if im manulaly rinsing the dishes, i have to clean of the bubbles and soap on my hands so i it doesnt contaminate the rinshed dish im rinsing at the same time.
When I pause a video on youtube or take out/put in my earphones, it has to be at a time where the "seconds" digits are 5, 15, 25, 10, 45 or 00, otherwise I feel kind of uncomfortable as strange as it sounds.
Oh, and im not sure whether or not this counts but I DESPISE the dirt that gets in the grooves of my 3DS which is not removable, it just gets my attention so much! Same thing with anything that gets on my buttons and down the sides, in which case I will use my stylus to try and remove it.
