This is a thread to vent all your weirdness and tell everyone your OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder - repetitive, unusual behaviours) and idiosyncrasies! From my experience, there are A LOT more people who suffer from OCD than I ever expected, so don't be shy, little one. Come out and talk!

I'll start. When I'm walking on tiled floors or paths, I MUST have an even number of steps on each tile/cement square. I constantly look down at my feet and try to estimate how many steps I can fit on one section of ground before it ends. It's exhausting!

Another one, I wash my hands probably about every half an hour or so. Even if I haven't done anything or touched anything dirty. I just do it.

When I'm lying in bed trying to sleep, sometimes I get bored and look at my digital alarm clock and try to find pictures in the numbers. This one's pretty unique as far as I know, but it's just what I do. For example, for 9:59 I see a person playing baseball. I'll try and attach an image of what I mean to explain it better.



Now yours!

a lot of those are weird ts... but with me, I have to have even numbers or a five with anything, such a tv volume. I also will not step on cracks if I'm looking down, so tile floors are a nightmare. I also can't stand it when anything is twisted, (Except the pit...) so if I'm getting out of a car and the seatbelt is tweaked, I have to fix it. I even fixed one chick's bra strap in a restaurant once, kinda embarassing.

I have to be parrallel to one of the lines when I park my car. This is normally an easy one but sometimes, if the people either side of me have parked badly, it's impossible and so I have to go to a new park

There are heaps of others (I have a mild case of OCD due to something else) but that's the most commonly annoying one.

Oh, and if i'm sitting with my foot resting on my leg while i'm sitting on a chair, and the chair has armrests, I have to treat my food like a maze and follow the tread with the edge of the armrest

There's a place I go to get coffee whenever I go out. If I go out and into my home town I have to get coffee from that place. However, today, i walked in and ordered my coffee and some of the buns on display weren't piled correctly and I asked her to fix it because I almost flipped out

i get up more than once or twice after settling into bed to make sure i've turned all the electrics off. (i.e. there's a light on the plug sockets to tell that it's on). always the computer ones and my phone. it's not that bad.

Oh that too! I do that heaps. I hate it when people turn the volume down/up on something and it lands on, say, 17. It infuriates me.

Another one of mine, if I pull a muscle or something in my arm/leg, I have to equal the feeling on the opposite arm/leg. So say a pull a muscle really bad in my left arm, I go insane until my right arm feels exactly the same.

I thought you were a mod?

What else? I keep thinking of new ones

I have to do a certain thing with the microphone (sing into it a cetain way) at least once during every song, it's ok because it's not that hard most of the time.

I do the symmetry thing too. Our computer desk is a weird shape, and I have to have the keyboard and monitor parallel to the edge of the desk even though it makes it really awkward to use.

Also, if I've been outside in thongs, even if it's just to the garage or something, I have to wash my feet.

I'm not sure if this is OCD or what, but I use correct punctuation/grammar in EVERY context. When I post something and see that it has a typo and I can't edit it, I feel like killing myself.

i do the even numbers on the stereo one... especially annoying as by default it's on 9 on my car stereo so i have to change that (uaully to 10 cos the louder the better with rock music lol) before i do anything.
and also similair to punkman_123 if i itch one arm or leg or ear or whatever i have to do the same to the other. =[
#12
Can you see what I mean with the time picture thing by the way?

The first 9's his basball cap; the colon's his eyes; the 5's his left arm holding the baseball bat; the second 9's his legs and foot.

I can only sleep in one position, one arm extended straight out and under the pillow, so it's awkward if there's no space at the head of the bed.

I sleep with one arm under my pillow, and my other arm holding half the pillow wrapped around my head, to block my ears and most of my eyes. I can't sleep with any sound or light. In fact, most of the time I put my alarm clock in a beanie because the numbers are too bright for me to be able to sleep.

same thing with me and the number five. It used to be worse, like I had to make all the rooms/windows/doors/certain surfaces in the house/room add up a number divisible by five.

Also I can't check my balance when I get money out of an ATM, I can't look at the receipt. Instead I have to call a number on my phone which makes the band send me a text with my balance (but even that is difficult for me).

Also I feel compelled to fix things all the time, especially electric stuff like lights.

I do one strange thing, I'll try to explain it. When I'm in a car driving when the car reaches any pole or sign or something of the like, I have to like.. Imagine the car is jumping over the pole thats on the side of the road. Probably makes no sense haha, but I've always done it, it's really quite tiring and annoying.

Yet another one of mine... :S

When I'm writing and my pen starts to run out, I use it till it stops completely and then grab a new pen. But then I have to go over everything I wrote in the old pen again because it's slightly paler than the new pen. Sucks in exams when I only have 40 minutes to write a 5 page essay.

I can't go out the house without making sure that my bedroom door is locked and that all the electrical appliances in the house are turned off. This I have to do twice or three times before I am happy.

When I was smaller if I was going to stop reading my book I had to stop reading at the 100, 25, 50, or 75 page. Or the chapter after a huge event. I would quite commonly fall asleep reading my book because I couldn't reach one of those stopping points before falling asleep.

Nowadays, I just remember where I am, I don't even bother looking at the page number anymore.

You guys make me feel weird now because I don't really have any OCD tendencies at all.
#29
I forgot another one, I can't ring people. Or answer the phone all the time. But that's an anxiety thing.

I'm so messed up my therapist thinks i'm exaggerating it which could mean I have hypochondria which means i'm not exaggerating at all and then he'll be wrong but if he's wrong then I don't have hypochondria because I'll only be saying it to prove he's wrong in which case he's right...

I have to capitalise the first letter of every word in the band name and song title when I download music


I do that one too. I also do it in games, Characters names must have a capital letter, if the game doesn't allow for it i'm pissed off. My brother never capitalises the first name of his characters, it shits me to tears. And in games where I need to name certain things, the only words that arne't capitalised are the insignificant ones (and, of, or)

I have far too many to describe here so I'll just mention one.

I give words numbers according to how many parts they have visually.

A=2: The A itself and the little triangle inside.
B=3: The B itself and the two 'D-shapes' inside.
C=1: The C itself only.
Etc, etc...

Therefore, "Ultimate Guitar" would be: 11, 8.

Car number plates are something I do this with a LOT.


Weird? Yes.
It's just something I've done since I was in my early teens.
