everyone has pet peeves, but don't confuse it with OCD. Just because you happen to have a habbit you feel like you can't miss out on, doesnt mean you have OCD.

Example: If you wash your hands several times with separate new bars of soap, you're suffering from OCD pretty badly.

This is treatable with some reuptake inhibitors.

My husband suffers from this and it drives me absolutely crazy sometimes. He's not as bad as he used to be, but at night he check locks the door like ten times and checks the alarm clock a million times. when he pays for something he always counts his credit cards afterwards. If we leave somewhere he counts them again. When we get in the car he counts them again. When we get in the car he checks to make sure all the windows are up. He always locks his car doors three times. Sigh. Hes very organized though and a neat freak. I guess that's good. It's kinda funny and cute. The alarm clock thing is annoying and the car thing really gets on my nerves.

I'm obsessed with numbers.
Like the volume on the TV has to only be certain numbers, but there is a complicated cycle to it.
I dislike odd numbers, but there can be a few exceptions...like 15 because it was a good year of my life, doubles into 30 and any number ending in a 0 is solid.
Yeah, that's how complicated it is.

I can relate to your husband. I have an issue with locked doors. At times I get into a cycle that is hard to break where I have to check if the door is locked several times. I lock the door, leave, come back, check the door, and rinse and repeat. Several years ago it was really bad. I would go check to see if my door was locked 10 to 15 times before I could would be convinced its closed. If I am alone I still have issues with locked doors, but now I only check once or twice.

One thing that I have found that has helped is that I rely on my wife to confirm that the door is locked. I simply ask her as we walk away from the door whether I locked the door. That has helped me break the urge to go back and check again and again and again.

The irony of all this is that I always lock the door when I leave. However, she is the one who on more than one occasion has left garage doors open, and front doors wide open! And I am the paranoid OCD freak!

I've met so many women that claim they have OCD and that they obsess over certain things but then I spend a little more time with them and realize that it was all just for sympathy and attention. I don't know anyone that actually has the disorder and I can't wrap my head around how a person could devote so much brain power to some of the things I've seen people obsess over on the tv shows about it. Seems like it would be hell.
