Default Re: Is this OCD related?!

I think you just have tendancies towards OCD. I do know that autism involves the performance of rituals and has a certain obsessive element to it as well. But either way I think you are just displaying tendancies towards these types of behaviours and don't think it is anything to be concerned about.

But as already stated you have to exhibit other symptoms as well. You typically need to have intrusive obsessive thoughts, time consuming compulsions and show a marked distress towards both of these. All in all the obsessions and compulsions need to interfere with your day to day life before a definite diagnosis of OCD is given.
