Default Re: Embarrassing OCD Habits

Some of mine have already been mentioned, but I'll say them anyway.

-I wash my hands constantly. When I was younger I did it til my hands were red raw. Now it isn't as bad.
-I like to make sure plates and cutlery are clean and dry before eating on/with them, even multiple times incase the germs are there.
-I hate sitting near a window incase people see me. During the day I shut the blinds and sit away from them to make sure I'm "safe".
-I hate filth. I don't like touching other peoples plates or things they touch, but I do touch TV Remotes etc. It's weird.
-I bite my fingernails and the skin around them. I can't control it.
-I also "crack" my fingers against my palms.
-I can't look anybody in the eyes. Maybe its a confidence issue, but I feel bad if I do.
-I hate being touched.
-I hate being looked at by people.
-I hate being singled out in a crowd, or being the center of attention. It is too much pressure.
-Things have to be a certain way, as in position.
-Volume has to be at an even number, or at a multiple of five.
-Online and when writing, I need to use correct grammar or it bugs me til I'm annoyed. I do make mistakes of course, but not conscious ones.

This list was made so that the letter "I" was in a vertical line.
Yeah. That's how weird I am. Some of these are not really OCD related, but I thought I'd share them anyway.
