Default Re: Do i have OCD??

Sometimes people can have OCD tendencies, but not actually be OCD. I have a few little things like that, like I always have to pick all the lint and stuff off my jackets and shirts all the time, I always run my fingers through my hair to make sure I dont have any stray hairs (I do this like a million times a day), I have to play and win at least 5 games of solitaire a night or else I feel strange, my hand writing has to be pretty neat and the same way every time etc.

Is it physically/emotionally impossible for you to not do, or do differently one or more of those things? If it is, then it is very likely it is OCD, if you can just stop doing one of those things - it is not OCD.

Another question you have to ask yourself is: Why do I do these things, what do I think will happen? People with OCD often fear something that could happen if they dont do certain things - They might fear their mother will die if they dont take a specific amount of steps or count certain things, they might fear they will get sick and throw up if they dont arrange things in a specific order. Those kinds of things. Figure out why you do them, and if you cant find a reason - then it is probably not OCD, because most OCD people do those things because they believe something bad will happen if they dont.

I DO NOT GO ON HERE ANYMORE. I HAVE LEFT THIS PLACE FOR GOOD AND DON'T INTEND ON COMING BACK. PLEASE DON'T FRIEND REQUEST ME, PRIVATE MESSAGE ME, OR ANYTHING BECAUSE I WILL NEVER SEE IT AND YOU'LL NEVER GET A RESPONSE. THANK YOU.
