Default OCD?

I don't think it's OCD, but I'm not sure... well I always want things to be perfect and precise. I clean things a lot and I always get really pissed of when something in my personal belongings or my room gets messed up. It just seems like I'm constantly picking things up and when I roomed with someone at a camp he said that I was too neat. I also tend to worry about germs a lot. Is this normal?

P.S. The reason I don't have a picture is because I think it doesn't look in balanced or ordered, it's hard fo me even to explain why I think something is out or order sometimes...

those are deffinately ocd-like symtoms... infact those are probably the most common ones and if someone doesnt know exactly what ocd is they usually think of those sort of things when they think of ocd... please... get help i dont want to see things go crazy for you

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

Hello, new screen name, how would it get "crazy" and exactly what would "getting help" involve?

Hey Double Negitive,
By crazy I think Run Away Molly means out of control and getting help means talking to your parents and asking them to get you an appointment with a doctor who specializes in OCD.
I have OCD and if I were you I would take the advice even if it is just a false alarm it is better to get the help sooner than later. Believe me!

Yes, I know she means out of control, I think I might be Obsessive Compulsive, not retarded . I meant, how could it get out of control, what would happen, how would it be threatening, and at what magnitude (i.e. life threatening?) And by what would help involve, I don't mean what to do to get help, but in would I be put on medication, have a psychologist or what? Sorry about how vague I was before, It was early in the morning, and I hadn't slept... happens a lot, now that I think of it, is this another sign of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?

EDIT: I took checklist from the pinned topic... I didn't even realize some of the things I did were Obsessive Compulsive symptoms eh... 17 in all

for me it became paralizing... sometimes my ocd wouldnt let me get out of bed because i kept doing everything wrong... i just didnt want to get out of bed and deal with all of the things that took control over my life... sometimes id be in the same spot for hours just trying to make sure something is the way i feel it needs to be... no fun.

the last thing about sleep isnt ocd, unless its those things that are keeping you awake... if your jsut not able to sleep your probably dealing with some insomnia which many people with ocd deal with.

Ah, I see, what about the help part... Is there medicine I'd have to take or seing a shrink or something?

P.S.-I see a quote pyramid starting.

Yes! I see a therapist for my OCD and other things and am on clomipramine for it. It has helped me a lot! Talk to a parent or guardian and/or school counseler about the where the best help is around your area.
