OT Discussion...No, seriously
Have you ever noticed how these topics start about one thing and end up on something completely not even in the same universe as what it started out as? (Yeah, you have...admit it.)

Well, I'm starting another running thread on just that...let's see how many topics we can cover in one thread. I really like this because it really drives my OCD up a wall when I change the subject, or keep a tangent going. This way, my OCD gets a nice kick in the hiney :D

Okay, so have fun with this. Or bear with me, depending on your perspective.

Let's say the first topic is...what's your OCD habit?

(BTW, mine's continuity, if you couldn't tell.)

I have to check my stove/fridge/doors like 347560273608767557 times before I leave the house. *I* don't want to be the one who left stuff on or unlocked if anything happens to the house.

Yeah, see, I'm the one who doesn't check them, and then I swear that I didn't do it. So it drives me nuts til I go home to make sure. (Then I wanna kick myself when I see that it's done and I came all the way home for nothing.)

Do you have a number habit? My number is 4. Everything is in 4's. Hey, maybe THAT'S why I love patterns that repeat in 4's

I having an epiphany!

OMG! I thought I was the only one who did that.

I'm OCD about having my socks match my pants. :rollseyes: I've been known to change pants if the socks I want aren't available.

OCD translates to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Anything that you just HAVE to do or you feel anxious about it.

(The true disorder is much bigger.)

obsessive compulsion disorder.

Before i go to bed each night i check to make the doors and all windows are double locked.

I know my DH often times will check before i do but i still have to check things for myself.

I organize my dishdrain EXACTLY the same way every time I do dishes.

I cut my food into the same sized pieces before I eat it. I actually get a train of thought running through my head about how to EQUALLY divide a particular piece of food. French Toast works VERY well for this.

I tend to eat my food in "layers" whenever possible. I eat the chocolate off the outside of a Snickers bar first. I eat the frosting off the cake separately.

I wont even START talking about how i do laundry. :rollseyes:

I tend to only obsess about things that dont affect anyone else. I like to control the little things in life so I can handle the BIG ones with ease!
