Do have any type of "OCD" behavior?

I do, I like to clean my house in either 5 minutes intervals or I will count how many thing I pick up,put away and it is always done in icrements of 10 or 20. I also count how many steps it takes me to get to my moms huose next door or to the mailbox....Am I the only weird one?

  • Only a couple really small things....like I'm moderately obsessive about organizing things that are on display somewhere....if they aren't straight and nice looking I have to fix them. And my pillows have to be turned a certain way on my bed or I can't fall asleep. But those are small things.

  • you count billboards?? lol, thats awesome

    I coun't stairs, I've done it ever since I can remember... and If I take the stairs 2 at a time, I'll count by 2's. I also pace when I'm on the phone... I don't know if that's OCD, but I am physically incapable of sitting still while on the phone... I've tried to think about it and make myself stop pacing, but then I sound like an idiot because I can't formulate a sentence since I'm to busy concentrating on sitting still.

  • I used to be OCD about a lot of things but when my husband & I moved in together I had to let go of a lot of that. Otherwise I'd spend all my time getting angry at him for not doing things my way. Now I limit the OCD to the way I stack dishes in the dishwasher, and if he does the dishes I try not to complain.

  • I have a sense that it is evil to have things upside down...like food boxes or any kind of package.
    Color coordinate my sons clothes on his hangers so it looks like a rainbow
    wash my hands after everything I do even dishes.
    when I see crusted food on dishes or pans I gag and even when they are clean I don't feel they are because I still "see" the crud that was on those plates from earlier
    I don't wash my feet because I feel that feet are nasty.
