Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Although it's usually in the area of cleaning...it isn't always... I know someone who: • insists on coasters under beverages (plastic furniture)... • likes garbage pails only WITHOUT garbage... • plumps up sofa pillows the minute your **** is up... • has to keep their vehicle spotless...etc. I call them mini-obsessions...can you lay claim to one?

Swipe to go to another post.

I have several idiosyncrasies...but the one I would call a mini-obsession is the fact that I cannot go anywhere without lip balm...

I got caught once in -29 degree weather in Calgary...those dry lips and the more you lick them...the more they get wet...and then frozen...ever since then I've been obsessed with lip balm...

The room I am in now has...hmm...5 of them situated at various stations.

I can kind of imagine how that would be an issue with severe cold and zero humidity. I often do the same thing with sun screen in the summer here.

Yes, in fact, I find it very difficult to pass up opportunities, such as these, to ask particularly random questions about the subject manner. For example;

Let's say you had your lips surgically removed for some reason (of which I think it inappropriate to go into now) would you still have to take your lip balm with you everywhere?

So you're saying it's not a real obsession? :) Maybe not...since, yes, I would lose it if I had no lips...

I have a thing about my laundry.
Hate wrinkles
Hate to iron
My whites are overbleached so have to be washed twice. White should be...white.

And i hate...really hate
To have my picture taken

There is a row off 12 light switches at the bottom of the mainstairs in my home. I push them all down before I go to bed. Even if that means I have to go to the location of other switches to turn off the lights that I turned on by pushing them. Even if I have to climb the stairs in pitch dark. I don't know why. I just have the mini-obsession that they should all be down. Sometimes I even go to all the switches in the house and make sure they are down which means eventually I will be walking around in the dark trying to find my way to bed.

I am much like your sister. I can't go to bed in a dirty house. Everything has to be spotless.

I can't go to bed with your sister, unless her dishes are done.

Then again, seriously, I have a bit of OCD, which is weird because I live in a home of chaos. I haven't even cleaned for months and yet, I still suffer from the condition. I guess it's selective, which makes it even... Weirder.

A bit OCD myself. Got into making home like scenes inside walnut shells. Lots of tedious effort and precision while completely ignoring the mess on the garage floor. I don't think it is actually OCD at that point. More like Obsessive Single Track Mind Disorder. :)

I am perhaps a bit overly obsessed with personal hygiene.. only because of the feedback I've had from women over the years that all told me horror stories of their partners and ex boyfriends who had no idea how to wash. So now I can have up to five showers in a day, and never leave the house unless I'm clean enough to have **** with.

I can't go to sleep without checking to make sure the door is locked and everything is off. Can't leave a room without flipping the switch. Yes I have turned the lights off on people (hehe). I have to make sure everything is off like the oven before leaving.Yes once I drove 30 minutes back to my house because I was unsure. I can't stand wrinkles in my clothing.

Even after hosting a family get together, when I'm dead tired, I won't go to bed until I clean up the kitchen. I can't stand to wake up to an awful mess in the mornings.

There's actually some old Chinese stuff that says that when you have an orgasm you are literally draining yourself of energy. I don't necessarily disagree with that. :)
