    Minor OCD Habits?



    Hopefully just a fun thread to mention or discuss any minor Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder habits we might have but don't really affect or lives in a harmful way.

    Might be interesting to see how alike we all might be (or not).

    I notice that I'm somewhat of a counter (in my head).

    I count steps when I walk up and down them.

    I count the number of times I pack my cigarettes... 10 times, turn the pack 360 (still on the butt side) pack 10 more and always 5 extra for some reason.

    I check the pilot light on my furnace every morning when I go in the basement to shower... it's always on.

    Stuff like that.

    Before shutting my eyes at night to sleep, I look at the 2 baby pictures of my kids on the wall.

    I used to be ocd about checking lights. I would turn them off but turn them on and then off again, to make sure that they were really off.

    --Any cash in my wallet is in order from smallest to biggest--and preferably all facing the same way.

    --My CD's and DVD's are in alphabetical order--and within each artist they're in order of release (VH, VH2, WACF, FW, etc).


    I prefer to say that I'm organized rather than OCD. But call it what you want.
    At least I don't flick light-switches or do tricks with my cigarette packs like you weirdos.


    Interesting idea for a thread.

    Put my wallet and keys in a certain spot as soon as I get home.

    I don't think the Links has enough bandwidth (is that the right phrase?) to cope with all my OCD-related issues! So I shall, in this instance, refrain from commenting!

    Can't stand it when a dresser drawer, kitchen cabinet, door to a closet (etc...) is partially open. Have to go around closing them and its not me that leaves them open.

    so smart, and yet still a Yankee fan!

    The funny thing about the money - as compulsive or whatever that it is in order in my wallet, when I play a game like "Monopoly" or "Pay Day", my game money is usually in one big disorganized stack!

    I also tend not to leave the house without my keys - even if I'm just going to the curb or in the garage.

    No, for me, even playing a game like Monopoly, my money is in order. And I kind of hate when I don't have the time to put it in order. Same thing with my chips at the casino. When I win, I almost want to say "time out," so I can have time to stack my chips properly.

    OK, so yeah, maybe a little OCD.

    Nah, I still prefer "organized."

    OMG! Yes! and the sleeve they sometime put on there as well Sometimes the sleeve is glued together opposite, then the cup seam and sleeve seam 'clip' together nicely.

    Oh, I count lots of things...in multiples of fours. My Birthday is 4/4.....gee, I wonder where the 4 thing came from!?
    A little more volume in the headphones please.
