I have this thing where I'm always worried about stuff running out. I always want to have an abundance of everything. A simple example would be say, making a sandwhich and not help but thinking that the bread or what ever is going to run out. Ofcourse this isn't a big deal, but I've noticed that this "disorder" is affecting my daily life lately. If i have something on during the day at like 5 pm, i feel that I wont have time to do anything before than, so this often prevents me from even going to a mate's house before. I also feel like my childhood is slipping away and I have very little time to have fun and enjoy myself and party.

Anyway, just wondering cause i would like to resolve this problem some how. It's good to get it all out of my head

Sounds OCD-esque, or could just be you coming to terms with responsibility of adulthood and your impending doom

speaking of OCD, i had an argument with my mate that the main character in catcher in the rye 'holden caulfield' has OCD, he clearly displays signs of it, anyone read it? well neway yeah he disagreed.

I'm pretty sure OCD presents in a number of different ways.

im 16 and im in school... sumtimes wen im writing i want to keep up with the teacher sumthing, and i unintentially make a mistake or miss a comma or sumthing small like that, i feel the extremely great urge to fix it, as little as it may seem, eventually i thought about it and stopped doing this becoz i sort of, didnt give in to this urge, by not fixing it. stopping sumthhing while its small may have helped

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Which means you can be obsessively compulsive about anything. Although with alot of people, it is cleanliness. I think I have it to a very small degree.

But it can be anything from only touching things that are certain colours to walking backwards when they see a dog.

Yeah I had that too. On the pathways here, they are concrete slabs, about half a meter wide. I could only step on one slab once with either foot, and I could NOT step on the crack between them. I think I stopped it just by not looking at the ground every now and then [which was what I did to make sure I followed my rules]. If I messed up I would have to walk back and make sure I did it properly.

I must have looked pretty weird to anyone watching.

Yeah, that sounds like OCD to me.
The answer is to will yourself into not giving a flying fart about anything. Be the worst, slouchiest, scummiest, lazy git you can be. Allow yourself to run out of things, and when they do run out, just say, 'oh well' and go and get more as and when you need them.
The next step is to self improve yourself back to the level where you're no longer the worst, slouchiest, scummiest, lazy git you can be, but actualy fairly tidy.
You'll probably find that the 'running out of things' problem has disappeared by now.

What others are saying. Simple case of OCD. I've got a weird one where if something happens to one side of my body, I have to do the same to the other. e.g. if I stub my left toe, I have to go back and stub the other one. It's been getting a lot better lately but it still rears its ugly head every once in a while.

That's a little thing we like to call 'punctuation and spelling'. You obviously fixed that urge very well.

Hahah I do that. If I turn the tap off with one hand, I have to do it with the other. If i stand on a crack with one foot, i have to do it with the other. And I used to have little routines I would have to do when I was younger. Is it OCD? becuase I'm not sure
