Default I used to be

I think I used to have OCD when I was bout 10. I was obsessed with washing my hands, I had to wash them after everything I touched. Was that OCD?

yep. if that was just it then it wasnt so bad... but there might have been more that you didnt notice...

To win the respect of intelegent people and the affection of children, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch... to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is too have SUCCEEDED! - Emerson

I used to do stupid stuff like that as a kid aswell, i still do some ritual things...

I turn off my speaker before i goto bed everynight.

I used to not be able to sleep unless id had a shower before bed, i recognised that was silly and stopped doing it as sometimes id have showers at like 4 am and wake people up. I remmeber recognising it as stupid, and finding it hard to stop, but i did eventually, i forget how.

Don't worry too much about it now if you aren't experiancing anything intrusive.

If anyone wants immediate advice don\'t hestitate to contact to me on AIM (AOL instant messenger) - aim: vodkasmodka

I used to wash my hands like that all the time. It got so bad that they became extremely chapped, and I had to get some medicated cream for it. Whenever I'd apply it, it would burn like crazy. My doctor tried a few different medications, but they never did anything.

I had a few things that I did. I always checked the locks on the basement walkout door before I went to bed. I'm open my door constantly, for like 2 minutes about every 2 seconds and look at the lock.

Yay paranoia. Also, any time I'd think about a sickness, for one reason or another, I'd start telling myself I wanted it, even though I didn't, and would have to repeat this stupid phrase a couple times, basically telling myself to forget what I said, a whole bunch of times, before I would be fine again.

I've always developed habits really easily. I've gotten over most of what I talked about above, except the germ thing, and developing some habits really easily. I quit washing my hands all the time, and instead, started using various utensils to eat, or, using a paper towel to hold food. Never hands. I got to the point where I wouldn't eat with my hands period, even if I had washed them. I managed to force myself a few times on and off over the past few years to eat with my hands after a thorough hand washing, and a few extremely rare times, when I hadn't washed them in the past 20 seconds.

Fun. I realize I didn't have nearly as bad a case as a lot of people do, but it was still annoying.

I don't think so, you just had an idea for a while and got over it. You don't just "get over" OCD, and having it so young is kind of odd too.
