Default Re: What's with counting with OCD?

There are other forms of OCD besides the common counting and obsessive cleaning. Some people have certain numbers they are obsessed with. And I think the habits depend on the person. I have pure o OCD which is based soley on anxiety and worrying about something people without OCD would consider petty. I have mental compulsions, meaning I check or reassure myself mentally when I worry. I dont have any physical compulsions and no one besides my family knows I have it besides doing every thing in my power to avoid sidewalk cracks and counting on my fingers I don't have any signs of OCD But, to answer your question I think it depends on the person, their obsession, and what comforts them. There is an OCD site you might want to join stuckinadoorway.org It's a forum and everyone is super nice. Good luck
