Default am i a monica

ok people think im bit nuts and people joke bout me having ocd, at college my nick name was monica bing (from friends) cus i reminded everyone of her... so what what do u think....
all my cd's are alphabetical with the cd inside facing the right way up, anyone moves cd in wrong order i get so stressed by it. i hate things being out of place that if i c something in the wrong place or not quite 'right' i have to move it so it is. i hate clutter, i need things to be ordered, i cant even stand it on here wen i log on to find lots of yellow ticks to say there is new post... it really stresses me out cus there are just so many ticks and i have to sit here and go thru em all just so all the ticks have gone and it doesnt look so cluttered, i cant leave till all the ticks are gone. i dread the mornings wen uv all been here while im sleeping cus i know wen i log on there are gonna be lots of yellow ticks... ok stop talking bout ticks... sometimes i get this thing where i need to keep brushing my teeth or washing my hands, and when i wash my hands i cant touch anything cus it will just get the germs on em again.... ok does it sound like i have ocd to u?

To me ocd is about repetitive rituals, like believing if you don't turn the door know 3 times to the right when you leave the house that something bad will happen, it's irrational connections. It's about trying to control your world b/c you feel out of control. Sounds like you're a bit anal retentive and possibly have a germ phobia. I think alot of people are like that just usually not to a crippling degree. You might have a touch of ocd. Incidentally, I was just kidding before, I had no idea.

Try not answering every tick and see what happens--will it change your life, your day. Nope. It's all in your mind. If you think it's annoying, then to you, it will be.

Well you may have OC tendencies but you're probably not OCD. OCD often makes people unable to function. It sounds like you are just neat and orderly (like me most of the time). Nothing wrong with that!

As my pdoc says, everyone often displays traits of everything. It's when it begins to disrupt your life to the point where you feel unable to cope, then you need to do something about it.
