Default Numbers

I've heard of numbers being part of OCD - that's actually the main reason I realized OCD was what I had. How many people out there have to do things a certain amount of times and what is your number? I remember mine being 7 when I was younger, then it went up to 13, and then up to 21 (and trust me, that wasn't fun), but for the past few years now it's been down to 5. But it always has to be odd numbers for me. I don't know why. It's stupid because I always end up doing things in even numbers anyway cuz I'll add on an extra one at the end just in case I miscounted. Does anyone else do that?

I usually do 3, and I don't really miscount but if I think I did, I redo. (meaning i have to go back to where i was before i started)

way confusing.

I think thats how it first started for me, the way something just wouldn't feel right. Like when I was really young if I span around I had to go back the other way to where I started.

Do you think you are? I am not a doctor, I can not diagnose you. All I can tell you about is my experiences etc.

OCD is different for everyone....it's not bad if you have it either. It is what you make of it for yourself. (Well, that's my opinion at least)

I dont really have a certain number for anything, but i do things over and over until i feel that they are right and its normal. I kind of have this beat that i have to do things at. Like a drum beat. Sort of a pattern, like boom ticka boom tick boom ticka boom tick.

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

Man, I wasnt diagnosed w/ OCD, but my g-pop was, and I think i got it, too. Everything I do has to be an even number... Eating food(2, 4, or 6 pieces of chicken), push-ups, number of tiems i cough, etc. lol
I think its funny, I laugh at myself all the time

I don't always do something a certain amount of time. But I have an obsession with even numbers. Think if I'm eating chips or candy, there has to be 2, not 1 or I won't eat it.

But 8 is my number.
