Default is this a disorder???

i have become a perfectionist..everything that i do in life has to be perfect.......if i cook something i take hours and hours to make it look perfect and taste perfect, otherwise i would throw the dish away and start cooking again and again until i is perfect..when i write something, it has to be written soo neatly , if it is not upto my standard of neat, i will ripe it apart and keep wriing again and again even 1000 times if i have to , until it is soooooooooooo damm perfect........i want to look perfect..i spend hours and hours geting eady, making sure very little detail is perfect from hea to toe .....i always daydream and listen to the same song over and over and over again even the whole day and iamge scenarios that give me happiness and acceptance and most of all make me feel sexy....DO you think this is a disorder of some type??

I found this. I hope it helps.

Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder - This individual is a perfectionist, and obsesses about details to the point of following rules for the sake of the rules. They are extremely inflexible. Their quest for perfection usually slows progress toward goals because they tend to re-do things forever, without ever completing anything. They are overconscientious at work, but tend to not have many relationships. They are extremely rigid in terms of morals and values, to a degree not expected by their religious background. Their perfectionism prevents them from delegating tasks to others, so they tend to get bogged down in details, and become overwhelmed. At times, they are afraid to throw anything away, for fear they may need it someday, and they are sometimes true penny pinchers. They often have difficulty making decisions, because of fear of making a mistake.

Ah, nuts. I guess I have that too.


But, seriously, that does sound a lot like OCD. I do the same thing you do about imagining scenario's and listening to the same songs over and over again through out my day. I think that's actually pretty normal and don't think of it as anything more than just day dreaming. But, hey, if you think you have a problem then go and see a professional. Self diagnosing isn't healthy and I'm not sure how many actual practiced physicians use this forum...if any at all.
