Question Am I...?

For a few years now, I have had these little "quirks"- I can't stand if volume controls aren't in multiples of 5, I disinfect my hands 5 times a day, I hate leaving a room until every chair is tucked in and at home, the place mats always need to be in line with the edge of the table. I thought it was normal but recently I found out that my mum has OCD, and one of the few teachers I trust believes that I may have it. Do I...?

The majority of humans have a natural predisposition towards order and neatness, this does not equate to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. OCD (although the term is hardly ever used correctly) would be more like "okay, I've washed my hands 5 times now Bob won't die tomorrow", not "the volume should be on a multiple of 5". The main point of calling it a disorder as well is that it really does impact your day to day life whether through stress due to the disorder or due to the obsessive actions to the point where you can't function properly.
They are slightly obsessive traits though so if you're really concerned ask a doctor about it.
