I’ve never been diagnosed with OCD, but there are a lot of things I do that might point to OCD behavior. Three of them, for example:
- I can’t leave my bedroom without my bed being made.
- I absolutely, positively, must make my quota every day or I can’t sleep. It niggles at me. I can be prostrate on the bathroom floor with food poisoning but I have to get up to finish the quota.
- I have to count the bags of kibble I fill for Flash every morning – twice.
Most of the time I’m pretty laid back, but every once in awhile a behavior rears its darling little head and I must perform it. It makes me roll my eyes, but I just accept it as one of those personal idiosyncracies.
How about you? Any OCD tendencies?
