Question Not sure about this

I think i may have OCD because I am an artist and i am completley OdSESSED with symmetry even when im not drawing. I hate seeing assymetric floor patterns, and i really cant stand uneveness, except for outside (hills, mountains aren't even)

Just wondering, do you think i might have OCD? I just wanted to know

Techno is awesome. Period.

Talk to me anytime, i'm always up for a good convo

Rep Appreciated

i'm not sure if that is ocd, i have a similar problem, but then again mine is ocd i think. man you would really hate lsd. maybe your dislike of asymetry is caused by the desire of perfection radther than ocd.

im just trying to figure out if i have a case of it or not. I mean , im not sure because i do draw and i like the things i draw to be as perfect as possible, but that wouldn't carry out into other things like floor patterns right?

I can go into a longer post but it's late and I'm tired, so I will later if you want. Also, I'm basing this on my limited knowledge of psychiatry and the limited information you provided, so if you give more or change it, then what I say in the next paragraph may be incorrect so do keep that in mind. Also, even if you do appear to meet the criteria, I won't say for sure you have it because a) I'm not certified to and b) thinking you are if you are not leads to effects of self-diagnosis, which there's far too much of as it is.

If it is only that and nothing else, then it seems unlikely but not impossible to be OCD. I'm not a professional doctor but for OCD you need either obsessions or compulsions. You don't fulfill the criteria for obsessions but for compulsions it's possible and more likely for that.

it depends, sometimes things like that will if you have a constant strong desire for them. for example, if i like to do the same algorithim or pattern for shapes then after a while seeing things not matched to that algorithm or pattern will be insanely irritating.

i do not think you have OCD mate.You have to have either obsessions or compulsions. But it is kinda likely. Well if perfect is what you aim for , you have to ask yourself if there is a reason for that ? Other than that i do not see a problem with it. Only thing i can say and believe is that "perfection is not always pefect".
