What is something that you are OCD about?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
For me my bed has to be made before I get into it...I cannot stand to get into an unmade bed. I am also OCD about my computer desk and where things should be placed if one thing gets moved it takes me hours to find it(I have an office style computer desk with 6 HUGE drawerd and everything is in its place. No one is allowed to touch my desk but me

What about you?

Hmmm, the only thing I can think of is that I have to say to my cats "you be good kids while momma goes to work, momma loves you, bye bye" before I leave for work. I am unable to get into my vehicle without saying that first. I've tried and I've had to get out of my truck, go unlock the front door and say it.

Hmm... How about repeat OCD threads?

Not that I'm trying to be mean, I'm just sitting here thinking "Wasn't there one a week ago? " and then apparently I had to check to make sure.

Though I've noticed several repeated threads I have never thought to be so rude to someone as to point it out they obviously missed it by error of their own...and its fine with me I usually just re-answer the question and go on with my life.

Hanging out the washing, I like to have groups all together socks, pants etc. When I have time I like to match the peg colour to the clothing. At a family bbq we disovered most of us where like that

I really bad about things being put in their proper place. At home is fine because I am the only one there, however it drives me completely nuts when people do not put things back were they got them at work....

My biggest is that the bed has to be clean. I wash the sheets, blankets, and pillow cases every other day. It may seem a bit excessive but with 13 cats and 4 dogs sharing the bed at random times, and John who does not always shower after being under a greasy car... the bedding really doesn't stay clean for very long.

Well for a long time after driving about 1/4 mile from home I couldn't remember if I shut the garage door so I would turn around and check. It was ALWAYS closed!!
So I changed my routine to backing out of garage, hitting the garage door opener/closer to have the door go down and then I put on my seatbelt while the door is closing. By the time I have to belt on and adjusted I look up and the door is down and I can drive off. Strange I know!!

I have to arrange things so they are symmetrical

When I had a cleaning job on saturdays, the guy who I worked for would get home and try and help but I had to go round after him straightening things and lining them up He got the hint after the first few times!

I have a few but one that I don't even understand is arranging items neatly on the check out belt at the food store (which then get rung up and put into bags anyway)

people (ahhhheeeem mother in law from hell) comming into my house and rearranging my kitchen cabinents i HATE when people come into the house and nosy around and rearrange my stuff

i'm also totally OCD at work about getting to do the vaccinations and draw blood on the animals (weird i know, but it's kind of fun!) I line all of my vaccines up before i draw out the needles and put the stickers on the sheets a certain way- i make sure they look nice- i'm a little ocd about it my coworkers know not to mess up my system

Thank god I am not the only one! My dad is really obsessive about this as well, that he won't let anyone else hang the washing!

Unfortunately that would sort of be my OCD problem.... Details. Details for everything and I must point them out. I know it drives everyone crazy. I'm also a bit of a perfectionist.

Both my husband and I have severe OCD about making sure everything's turned off before we leave for work - iron, coffepot, stove, oven, hair curlers, etc. We've turned around more than once to check. It's because we are so afraid of fire trapping our little furry friends - that would be unbearable.

Ditto

Once I finally leave the house, I have to make sure that the door is secure. And by secure I mean pulling and yanking on the door like a fool as if the latch is mysteriously going to quit working or something

I am also OCD about making sure the cars are locked before I go to bed. I lock them when I get out of them, but before I can go to sleep I have to point the little remote thingy out the window and *chirp* all the cars now that is true OCD for ya

Moisturizing my hands and face in the winter. In the winter I will go through an 8oz bottle of hand lotion in a week. 2 oz will last several weeks in the summer.

I also cannot get into an umade bed, I make mine up every single morning and my Misty waits till it's made before she jumps back on again. She knows mommy has to make the bed every day :-) I have to hang up my clothes after taking them off, I never leave them laying around unless they are going into the hamper.

I have to have a clean smelling house if my house even smells a little funny I go around smelling things till I find out what is causing it and get rid of the smell. I burn wax tarts and use air stuff and even carpet powder.

I have two sets of silverware with different patterns, each set in it's own drawer. I'm extremely OCD about making sure each pattern gets put away in it's own drawer. I used to have to line up all the matching glasses in the cupboard too, but I'm not so bad now. Also, I count my steps sometimes, especially on the stairs at work (I walk down from the 4th floor, and start over after each landing on the way down )

For me, my hands have to be clean. I work in a library and touching all those books when they come back. well you just don't know where they have been
post #26 of 27
