HEY EVERYONE! I THINK I HAVE OCD! I LIKE FOR STUFF TO BE CLEAN AND NEATLY IN ITS PLACE! I LIKE FOR PEOPLE TO BE CLEAN. I TAKE SHOWERS 2-3 TIMES A DAY AT THE LEAST. I HAVE TONS OF DIFFERENT HAND SANITIZERS. I JUST LIKE EVERYTHING TO BE NEAT. BUT DOES THAT MEAN I HAVE OCD? I COULD JUST BE A NEAT PERSON! RIGHT?

Yes, please type normally or no one will want to help you.

It could be OCD, but don't jump to conclusions. Think about why you shower so often. Is it because you do stuff during the day that gets you all sweaty and gross? Or do you feel all dirty and germy for no good reason? What if you miss one of those showers, how do you feel? A good way to test is to just take one shower per day, unless you happen to work out in the afternoon and get all gross, then please shower again for the sake of everyone around you. xP Does missing these extra showers make you nervous, uncomfortable? Is it even possible to skip them? If you find that you CAN'T stop taking extra showers, and there's no other reason for you to be taking so many, I'd maybe see a doctor. If you have anxiety about germs that can really end up getting in the way of things. But let's see how well you can try and take care of it on your own, maybe it's just a habit that can easily be broken.

Right, and like teeny said you have to distinguish if its a bad habit or if it is OCD if you can't seem to get control of it see a doctor and he can tell you for sure.

Yeah, as Michael said, it could just be a habit. OCD is much more than a need to be a certain way. It needs to control your life, it's irrational and overwhelming.
