    I have ocd with doors. Every time I leave the house I check the door 5-7 times to make sure its closed. Same thing with car windows.

    I would say im very low on the spectrum. I only have a couple of small compulsions. For example, whenever i set my alarm on my phone and then lock it, I always have to go back on and check that i set it properly and at the right time. As well, when i play minesweeper, i always have to win two games in a row before i can move on.

    I have it to a lesser extent but I can will power myself to cut it out most of the times but I would say I'm a germaphobe and also do things like let's say I have 5 different cologne's, from monday to friday I wear a different one each day and if I use one twice in the week it would bother me but then I realize I'm just being foolish then I'm over it so I also have it in regards to doing things in particular order.

    People forget the "D" in "OCD" stands for "Disorder".

    Being compelled to eat the red M&M's first, or wanting your door shut isnt inhibiting your life; it's not a disorder. You're being neurotic.

    TS on the other hand...10 times?
    Damn.

    Why dont you just carry hand sanitizer instead of looking for the nearest restroom? I imagine restroom faucets and door handles are probably dirtier than whoever's hand you just shook

    This, you would save some time running back and forth to the washroom too.

    People with OCD know that their obsessions and compulsions are both irrational. That's why they have OCD and not schizophrenia. What makes OCD so troubling to the sufferer is the fact that he knows that he's being irrational, but he can't do anything about it. That's why they are called compulsions; he feels that he must complete the ritual or action.

    Meds didn't help me either. Luvox was really supposed to help but I'd rather have the OCD than the side effects of any medication in that class.

    I have exact same issues as TS plus counting and checking, and some other shit I just can't explain. I really wish I could explain one of the things. I also have a bad problem with the amount of pressure I apply with one finger versus another when touching something. If I touch something like let's say the keys on my computer and one finger presses a key harder than the other, I have to touch the key again with that other finger to balance the applied pressure. Which leads me to constantly deleting unnecessary letters. A lot of the times I have to press something hard enough to feel it in my fingernail. Hard to explain that one too I guess.

    Really bad with writing things also. Every part of a letter must be the same shade or darkness or I fix that tiny little part. Which leads to messing up the letter. Then going back over the whole thing to correct it all. And so on. If with a pencil, I erase a lot until perfect. Fun stuff all around...

    God damn it now I keep applying pressure to my fingernail (as in pushing the top side of my finger down on my computer)

    I understand dude. I have my many unexplainable compulsions. Most of mine are mental repetition stuff. I used to have more physical compulsions, but I've learned to adapt to mental compulsions to avoid being labeled as a crazy. That would be a problem at my job. My symptoms started at 23, and I'm 37 now. So, I've had time to adapt and evolve. I hear you about the meds too. The side effects are much worse than the actual problem.

    I know that feel bro. I check the doors of my house at least 3 times to make sure they're locked when I enter/leave. Same with my car alarm and car windows. My friends always trip out on me when they're over my house or in the car with me, when I do my weird OCD shit.

    And also, framed stuff on the wall, shit needs to be aligned and symmetrical or I lose my shit.
