My only "OCD" habit I can think of is when I change the volume on the radio, tv, or computer it has to be 1-11, or a multiple of 5, i.e. 15, 20, 25, 30, etc..

People think its weird because whenever I get in the my car, I have it usually set already to 10 or 15, and I always turn it down 1 notch and then back up 1 notch. And when I am watching t.v. with my family I always ask for the remote when they change the volume so I can change it to what makes me comfortable.

My biggest problem lately was when I got my ipod and didn't know what volume it was on because of the circle dial thing. I figured out how to set it later on but it usually bother me whenever I listen to music on it. I would constantly change the volume while listening.

If I brush my arm or leg on accident, then I have to try to brush the other the same way. It really sucks when i'm at a store or something and everyone stops and stares and the guy trying to drag his foot over a mat just right, ha ha.

I have to touch things 4 times, I always touch a picture on my door when I leave the room and the worst is when I'm riding, when I come to a fence I have to glance behind my right leg 4 times and touch my hand with my whip 4 times.

I have a thing with even numbers.
I have to have the volume on an even number, i have to check the time on my phone an equal amount of times and once again it has to be an even time before i can try to settle to sleep.
I sometimes touch things or brush against things and if it doesnt feel right i have to do it again and make it feel right on an even number of times i have tried. Also when im out shopping *food shopping/regular shopping* i must check all or atleast nearly all of the stock on the shelf of the thing i need to buy and pick the one that seems right (thats quite embarrassing as people say im weird and to hurry up).
Plus sometimes if i blink *usually before bed* if it doesnt feel right when i close my eyes to go to sleep i have to keep opening and closing them until it does *and yes an even amount of attempts to get this right*..
well i think thats it :/ ..xox

I've never been diagnosed, but I know I have it. Everything must me organized and clean! Movies and cd's are in alphabetical order, my dishes in my cupboard have to go a certain way or else I freak out on my roommates, my books are organized by author's last names. I constantly clean out drawers for clothes and refold them.

I don't know if I have it but I can't stand being in a tight space or crowded groups of people. If somebody runs into me or touches my back I quiver and I have to brush it with my hand. I cannot touch any public door handle I have to use a paper towel or something to open the door. When I make eyecontact with a person it feels like they are burning a hole right through me and I have to look away from them.

OCD for me was always about Graphic Design, I've been into graphic design for about 7 years now, The entire time i've been obsessed with everything being perfect, I spend hours fixing fonts, I need everything to be equal, A 1px difference is just too much, I need to enlarge the canvas by 1x1.
I obsess about the difference in peoples monitor daily, to the point where i actually think less of people who haven't calibrated their monitors :S
My firefox bookmarks are arranged precisely how i want/need them. My desktop is bare. I can't stand a cluttered desktop, Even recycle bin is too much. My OCD was ALL about computers, Recently i was prescribed Esitalipram, Then OCD became an actual problem, I carry hand sanitiser and body wiped everywhere, I Clean my laptop daily, I obsess about the tiny possibility that anything i do will infect someone else, My hands are red and sore from all the washing, I rub moisturiser in about 5 times daily, I buff my nails every few hours. I can't live my life properly now. My mind is always on how clean my hands are. Anything i touch is dirty, If i'm outside with no sanitiser i pretty much have a panic attack, I rush to a shop and sanitise, Sometimes without paying for the sanitiser. I can't not sanitise, I beleive it's all a lie, All made up to sell sanitiser, That doesn't stop me though, Talking about it now makes me need to wash my hands.

Edit: All my CD's Games and movies are arranged: Genre/Release. So for PS3 games i HAVE to have Modern warfare 1 before 2, I can't do anything until they're arranged.

What makes something OCD? If it messes with your life in an interfering way right? I tend to forget things I need to have when I leave home, so I need time to stop and analyze what I need to have before I leave. If I forget something, I'm in a bad mood all day. I am furious and irritable because I forgot a book, a pen, a notebook, a document, forgot to get this or that from the store. I hate to forget things lol. Drives me nuts.
