Default Embarrassing OCD Habits

For me this is kind of embarrassing....

Before I go to bed, I have to count to 4, 4times, shut out the light really fast and close my eyes for 4 seconds. I strongly believe that If I don't do this I will die.

Do you have any embarrassing OCD 'habits'?

I check under my bed every night before I go to sleep. I'm convinced that if I don't, I'll have awful nightmares.

I have one similar to that. When I turn my car off, I take the key out and get ready to open the door. Then, I restart the song I'm listening to and open the door really fast so that when I start my car again, it will replay the entire song from zero.

I have like a million embarrassing habits that everyone makes fun of. I have to tap splenda packets 8 times before shaking them 25 times, and then I can open them. They all have to be facing the same direction too. So many people stare at me when I'm doing this.

I work at Chick-Fil-A, and if I'm on register, all the money in my register has to be facing the same direction. So I have to organize the money any of my customers gives me, and it takes forever.

I could go on forever. >.<

Oh my gosh I always move the disks around to make sure they're secure too, cause 'if it's not in there right it'll get messed up'.

I do stuff like that, even hold my breath for a second when I pass by people in the store if they're close and it's flu season.

If I hit a DVD on the case while tring to put it in I often check for scratches too.

From left to right: Coats, down to vest coats, then hoodies, hoodless sweaters, then normal sweaters, long sleeve button down shirts, short sleeve button down shirts, then graphic tee's, and school gym uniforms ALWAYS last to right. But in each of these sections, light colors go first and then dark colors go last. And if there is a brand that repeats, they go together depending on what kind of clothing they both are.
I organize my closet either by color or type of clothes sometimes, and I put my dvds in alphebetical order...I don't always do these things though.

I wash my hands alot. Say I'm making a sandwich. I would wash my hands to eat, get a plate, get the bread out of the bag, put it on the plate, wash my hands (even if I touched the bread after touching the bag anyway), grab the peanut butter and jelly, put them on the bread, wash my hands, then go eat. Although sometimes touching boxes and stuff doesn't bug me, sometimes it does. And I check like silverware before I use it.

And also, with the handwashing, in the winter my hands get dry and sometimes crack/bleed. Often I do 'the works', which involves washing my hands well, and rubbing my fingernails on the opposite palm, and depending on why I'm washing my hands, I wash up my arm/s a bit, and when I rinse, sometimes I buth rub my nails on the opposite palm again AND then manipulate them under the faucet to rinse under them. I take a lot longer than most perople washing my hands. I also recall episodes from when I was younger, one I just kept washing and washing my hands (think I had a certain number I had to do) and started crying, and one time I was pleased with myself for now washing my hands after my FOOT touched something.

Also I remember, other OCD episodes, one time I had this really bad OCD thing, I remember I was riding my bike and couldn't enjoy it cause I never finished whatever things I was needing to do mentally, and then I was in my room and I was upset or something. Terrible feeling. Also, I apparently had some sort of count on my fingers thing I think was probably OCD related. Oh, and saying stuff alot/a certain number of times. We have one home video where it was Christmas time and I was five, and I repeatedly said two phrases 'dumb babies' (from Rugrats that we always watched as a kid) and 'Ho-ho-ho'. That video embarrases me.

I have emetophobia too so that makes me very germ aware. Like Monk I don't really like shaking hands, and I don't like to eat and touch my computer with the same hand; if I eat at the computer I usually keep my right hand for typing since I'm right-handed and eat with my left hand.

Probably a few more I'm forgetting.

Forgot, also I check the stove sometimes up to 5 or 6 times before leaving it making sure I have a mental picture of the buttons in the off position. Sometimes i would run back down the street to the house to check the knobs again. I've also got the stereotypical hand washing 10 times per minute, especially when I'm preparing food. I always flush toilets with my right foot and close taps with my knuckles.

I do this thing with my eyes before I go to bed. I guess you could say I calibrate my eyes. I look to the left for a few minutes, then right, & up and down. I think if I don't do that my eyes will cross

I have to do things in counts of four. I walk in counts of four. Hold my breath random times for fourseconds. I have to do certain things in sixteens because its my lucky number. I do some things in four because its the square root of my lucky number.

Straight and trying to find that right girl

My skin-picking is probably the most embarrassing. I pick at pretty much anything really. Scabs, blemishes. And especially my fingers. They're not too bad, but they have some noticeable scarring around the cuticles. I just bite the skin around the nail unconsciously. That started around the time I got over my nail-biting, actually.


And I'm sorry I didn't build your walls. And I'm sorry I had to go and fall.
And I'm sorry I had the whole thing wrong. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
And I'm sorry that you are feeling small. And I'm sorry that I'm not used to crawling.
And I'm sorry the writing's on the wall. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
