DO I have OCD?
 
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.

Re: DO I have OCD?
 
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.

Thank you for the help, is there anything I can do about it?

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.
