Are you OCD about certain things or in general? If you don't know what it means...

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions).

Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety.

Yes, and it gets on my nerves. Peopling have been telling me that I have OCD since I was a kid.

I'm removing the example now because I want to.

Yes, I've had semi-bad OCD since I was a kid, and it's only bad for specific things. :3

For example, with the light switches around my house, I have to keep checking that they're off until I'm completely satisfied. With locked doors, I have to check that they're locked until I'm also reassured in my mind. The weird thing is that I don't show my OCD in public, but when I'm alone in my house or by myself, I'll do it.

It's not necessarily something that's hindered my daily life in any way. It's just rather annoying sometimes, especially when you're in a hurry. I sound like I'm mentally crazy, lmao.

No one really HAS OCD but yeah I guess we can be OCD about some things.

If I put my iPod down and the screen goes dark, even when I'm not playing with it, I MUST keep the screen bright. It shall not sleep until I press the off button!

I am not really OCD about anything though.

Keeping my house tidy is an absolute must. It's not spotless, just organized and tidy.
It drives my partner mad when I organize her stuff.

I also wash my hands a lot more than others apparently although I don't notice it really.
I shower twice a day at least, sometimes 3 or 4 times [I usually have a run during the day and always shower afterwards] so that adds to the shower-count I guess.

I always have to charge my DS, cos you never know when I need to play my Pokemon games and I have fear of the power running out.

And on top of that, I always need to leave my bed unmade so that I'll get to sleep easier. Making the bed would make it harder for me since I usually have to rush for work almost every morning.

Thankfully I don't have real OCD, but my grandfather used to when he was alive and needed medication for it.
I do have obsessive thoughts and anxiety if I don't finish tasks right away; but I wouldn't say it's particularly OCD.

I am very OCD about my DS/3DS games because I like switch my plays I want to play a lot and keeping them in one place really helps.

I've never been officially diagnosed with OCD, but I wouldn't be surprised if I was. I am obsessed with keeping certain things, not all but very particular things, organized and clean. I like to collect things and keep them neat and assorted properly, and I love to organize things. But like I said, it's just certain things. It's usually Pokemon related things, but most of my video game related stuff in general tends to get this treatment.

I'm also very particular about how to do certain things, such as the order I wash myself in the shower, the times I eat, and the way I sleep (or start sleeping, since I wake up in a different position). I also bite my nails a lot, which is apparently a sign of OCD. I already have social anxiety and nervousness, so like I said, wouldn't be surprised if I were to be officially diagnosed with OCD lol. Though I don't think it's bad, because the small things I do that relate to it don't really affect me negatively and make things difficult throughout the day. Though I used to be a lot worse with it. I would reorganize my Pokemon cards every day, clean them with a Q-tip every week, dust my consoles and game every month, etc. I don't do that anymore, or at least not that often, but...lmao damn, young Syd.

I'm pretty OCD about everything. Today I spent 15 minutes at work straightening out all the One Direction merchandise even though it was fine before.

I wouldn't be surprised if I was diagnosed with OCD. I'm not a massive obsesor but I do like things clean, orderly and neat. Most of my 'OCD' stems from my school work -- I'm a perfectionist at heart so I aim to complete work to the best of my ability. I can get really picky sometimes at just little things like what pens I used etc.

I don't have REAL OCD, but I have many OCD tendencies. I tend to be overly obsessive about a lot of things for sometime, and if I blink one eye, I feel like I have to blink the other to "balance them out". I know, crazy, right?

Pretty much the only thing I have OCD-ish things about is locking my car. I always have to turn back and make sure it's locked like three times before I'm completely satisfied.

I haven't been diagnosed with OCD, but I think I have one. I must do something(like reading or sketching) to get rid of my bad impulse of doing or watching something unchaste.

uggh its not OCD its CDO with the letters in alphabetical order like it should be guys
I'm normally very neat and organized when it comes to stuff I legitimately care about, sometimes to the point of extremity. Everything has to be in perfect shape or else it doesn't pass. Normally though, I'm fairly disorganized and don't really care all that much or show any OCD like signs. :/
