I think I have OCD

18 replies 2 views Edited Jan 22, 2007

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OCD

Ok, I have:

Perfectly aligning objects at complete, absolute right angles, etc. This symptom is shared with OCPD and can be confused with this condition unless it is realized that in OCPD it is not stress-related.

Having to "cancel out" bad thoughts with good thoughts. Example of bad thoughts are:

A need for both sides of the body to feel even. A person with OCD might walk down a sidewalk and step on a crack with the ball of their left foot, then feel the need to step on another crack with the ball of their right foot. Also, if one hand gets wet, the sufferer may feel very uncomfortable if the other is not.

I do the exact same things, especially doing everything equally.

Having to "cancel out" bad thoughts with good thoughts. Examples of bad thoughts are:
Imagining harming a child, and having to imagine a child playing happily to cancel it out.
Sexual obsessions, or unwanted sexual thoughts. Two classic examples are fear of being homosexual or fear of being a pedophile. In both cases, sufferers will obsess over whether or not they are genuinely aroused by the thoughts.

I used to to both of the bold lettering all the time. I finally overcame it in like 7th grade. It's really really hard to overcome. I never got diagnosed with it but I'm positive I had it. It felt like if I didn't do it right God would punish me. I finally realized how dumb that sounded and I overcame it but very slowly. I still do it every once in a while.

Like sometimes I feel like I just have to do some weird thing, like move my arms in a weird way, or make a strange noise. and one really bad thing that I think is a hallucination, where I feel like a hedge trimmer is cutting my achilles tendon
