Do I have it? Like whenever something goes wrong I go to lengths to get it right. Like say I make a tiny mistake that does not matter on a game, I'll spend hours till I get it right :/.

With my phone, one small bug in it and then I never feel the same about it and always keep finding new bugs.

Like my iPod, I loved it. But then I discovered one thing wrong with it now I feel completely different and keep doing everything to fix it when I don't need to :/

I always feel the need to straighten things up but try and with stain myself.

Obsessive compulsive disorder, as the same suggests, consists of obsessions and compulsions.
An obsession is an irrational thought that can not be got rid of easily.
A compulsion is what the person must do in order to get rid of that thought.

We can not diagnose you here but I hope that gave you an understanding of what OCD is and that it will help you decide if it is a possibility that you have it.

From what you said it sounds as though you may have it, although as I said we cannot diagnose you.

I was treated for it about five years ago alongside depression. Recieved CBT and Prozac for the depression and CBT alone for the OCD, although I hear Prozac is occasionaly prescibed for it.

From my experience, the treatment isn't 100% effective but if you have it badly (which I didn't thank goodness) it can make a world of difference.
