If it's not, then no matter how unimportant what ever I'm writing is, if it looks messy in any way, I write it out again and throw the old version in the bin.
Somehow, seeing a crossing out on the page or even a little scribble or stupid doodle makes me really angry like I want to rip the whole thing up.

I also HAVE to be on time for EVERYTHING and if I'm not then I get very anxious and nervous. My friends don't understand because the teachers don't really care if we are 30seconds- 1min late to class but I do. (I guess you're thinking that it's not not such a bad thing to want to be on time for everything but I feel like it is)

I am also recovering from anorexia and I seem to remember when I was at its worst, all food portions had to be perfect. My body also had to be perfect. (I don't have that problem anymore though). Could it be related?

If ever my friends mention OCD, they talk about obsessively washing hands and making sure everything is clean before touching it. I don't have this problem in any way.

Please, someone help me and maybe give some advice on what I can do to stop getting so anxious when things don't always go right. I'd really appreciate it!
My cousin used to have that problem, but it wasn't his OCD. It was his mother's OCD. She threw away every paper which wasn't perfect and once they had to buy a new notebook!
