    What is your strongest OCD curse?

    Mine is actually several things...counting...doing things in the same order EVERY time...routines...putting things back where they belong and I get anxiety if my kids and or roommate doesn't put things back where they belong...I will even look at a pic or painting and I have to get all the colors in the pic, only once cant repeat the colors and make it all the way off of the pic and frame with out repeating a color... weird huh? lol ok, your turn

    I have to do a set check list, to make sure everything is in order before I leave (double check) I still even panic, then..

    I also find the need to obsessively brush my teeth.

    I always think bad things will happen if I don't do certain tasks....It's mostly when I'm cleaning..If I don't clean certain things or I don't do it correctly I will think something terrible will happen to me or a family member

    My ears are way too clean. I go through q-tips really fast.

    Having things laying on the floor or sitting on the kitchen counter really set me off!

    I like to have a large amount of open space in my living area and if things aren't in order I'll go bonkers.

    I need even numbers. For everything- food, phone numbers, my cart at work. It's frustrating to only be able to use half of a ten point scale, because I can't even say the other numbers. It's terrible.

    Do the other numbers cause you anxiety?

    Anything that's not even gives me panic attacks.

    Walking around my apartment for hours on end finding every flaw and trying to fix it grabbing things and placing them in there correct spots which ends with me cleaning my roommates messes for typically 5 hours every day

    Checking my front door more than twice.....even leaving and driving back fearing that it is unlocked when I clearly locked it! I feel like people in my neighborhood are watching me do it and laughing.

    I would fear seeing 666 on my odometer in my car.......I am at 272,000 miles, so there have been multiple times of it occurring over 13 years . I am afraid that if I look at it three times, my world would end. I got mad once and looked at 666 6 times. At McDonald's, my order came to $6.66 and they gave me my food free.
