Embarrassing OCD Habits
For me this is kind of embarrassing....

Before I go to bed, I have to count to 4, 4times, shut out the light really fast and close my eyes for 4 seconds. I strongly believe that If I don't do this I will die.

Do you have any embarrassing OCD 'habits'?

I check under my bed every night before I go to sleep. I'm convinced that if I don't, I'll have awful nightmares.

I hold my breath for about 5 seconds after someone coughs or sneezes. Also, say someone accidentally coughed on my sleeve. I rub purel on my hands and rub it into my sleeve.

Re: Embarrassing OCD Habits
Forgot, also I check the stove sometimes up to 5 or 6 times before leaving it making sure I have a mental picture of the buttons in the off position. Sometimes i would run back down the street to the house to check the knobs again. I've also got the stereotypical hand washing 10 times per minute, especially when I'm preparing food. I always flush toilets with my right foot and close taps with my knuckles.

Re: Embarrassing OCD Habits
Before I go to bed I make sure to hold and close my eyes (so I won't see scary figures in the dark) til the morning.

Re: Embarrassing OCD Habits
Randomly, I have to say something or touch something an amount of times or I feel like I might die, or someone else.. :/

Re: Embarrassing OCD Habits
I do this thing with my eyes before I go to bed. I guess you could say I calibrate my eyes. I look to the left for a few minutes, then right, & up and down. I think if I don't do that my eyes will cross

Re: Embarrassing OCD Habits
I have to do things in counts of four. I walk in counts of four. Hold my breath random times for fourseconds. I have to do certain things in sixteens because its my lucky number. I do some things in four because its the square root of my lucky number.

Re: Embarrassing OCD Habits
My skin-picking is probably the most embarrassing. I pick at pretty much anything really. Scabs, blemishes. And especially my fingers. They're not too bad, but they have some noticeable scarring around the cuticles. I just bite the skin around the nail unconsciously. That started around the time I got over my nail-biting, actually.

Re: Embarrassing OCD Habits
Well my tv volume has to be divisible by 5. And if I(this is hard to explain) if one part of my body is touched i have to touch the other part until i am comfortable and same with taking drinks, if the drink is in one side of my mouth too long I gotta do the other side as long.

Re: Embarrassing OCD Habits
Oh gwarsh.. don't get meh started.. I used to, thank God I stopped! Tuck in my sheets around my head and body so I was in a cocoon. Now I just sleep with the covers over my head. I have to wash my face, then brush my teeth, then pick at my face..
In class I pick at my face, scabs, blemishes anything. If I have skin on or near my cuticles I will pick it off. I literally will pick at my nails for hours..
Everything electronically volume has to be divisible by 5.
I have lots of quirky rituals. I have to cut my food up into small bits before I eat. I eat by colors and by caloric values. I also pick at my food. I also pull eyelashes..

Re: Embarrassing OCD Habits
For me, whatever I listen to or watch it's volume HAS to be on an even number no matter what.

Re: Embarrassing OCD Habits
In my underwear drawer, I have to have the briefs, boxers, and boxer-briefs separated. I guess that's not too bad for OCD.
