Default Re: things out of order, germs, and my hands

Nobody here can diagnose you or tell you anything for sure... But anyway...

First of all, Mysophobia (or commonly germaphobia) and OCD are two different things, but are sort of related. I certainly don't think you have it, (possibly a very minor case) if you share drinks etc... Some people just don't like the idea of it (like me), but that doesn't necessarily (and most likely, according to what you have said), mean that you have it.

In the term of OCD, I am doubting it as well from what you've said. Do you have rituals that you have to do? Are they unchangeable? These are signs of OCD, while what you've said seems to be you liking things neat. You may want things a certain way, but aren't totally compelled. A really common trait is (are?) number related obsessions/compulsions. i.e. You must have this many things on this shelf, this many remotes together, always eating the same amount of something, something but have a certain number of something (i.e. 5 pieces of food on a fork) or you won't eat it.

I would go check this and this out if you haven't already. It goes more in depth on the symptoms.

Can we tell you for sure? No. Can we give you suggestions? Sure. If you become really worried/obsessed with it, talk to a doctor, or even a school counselor, they can help you if necessary.

Good Luck!
