Do any of you suffer from OCD or a type of it?
Posted 12/19/12
There are several things that I do that are well within the range of what would be considered an OCD. Some of them I don't care that I have them, others I'm trying to break free from.

I use to wash my hands very frequently, often when there was no real need to do so, but I've come a long way from that.

I don't have OCD, unless eating 2 boxes of chocolates in one day counts as OCD then maybe I do.


To stop this from happening... I try not to eat the first chocolate because I know if I eat it, I'll keep eating.

In your case, I have no idea what I would do... maybe you should try hypnosis from a trained psychologist.

I hate when things aren't symmetrical. I also do the same thing as youwith biting my lip. Also, I rearrange the shelf with my manga and anime like 3 times a day. Like with bleach. I'll put the season box sets before the movies, then I'll change my mind and put the movies first. Then I'll change my mind again and put them in the order they were aired in Japan, like putting the first movie between seasons 5 and 6.

Oh my gosh, I had the same problem (/_\) I was and still am a perfectionist, and had to be clean because that was considered "perfect". Even washed my hands after I eat. I felt like I couldn't do anything without washing my hands first D; but now, I've gotten better and wash before I eat, after I use the bathroom, or did stuff in the nature, nd whatever else you could that that may cause a lot of germs..

I've tried many things over my years when dealing with my OCD. I've been dealing with these issues for the better part of 12 years now, and I've tried most of the meds out there on the market for this issue, including the narcotics. The problem is finding a medicine that will help me but allow me to function in today's society. I've yet to find a medicine that i can take and solves all my OCD issues, so i started looking elsewhere for a solution. I've found a drug that i can do that helps me not going to recommend for you to do it but weed helps people not joking. I used to hoard and all that just one year and i've stopped that along with several other issues. I stopped for 4 months and was able to maintain what i had gained some of the things i found myself fighting against, but for the most part being able to go a year and slowly one things at a time i would stop doing. You have to figure out your limits and push yourself to stop something if all you have wrong is that you bite the skin off your hands then I say you keep active keep you mind off that and try going a day without biting them then two and so on. Once you have gone a month then you can tell yourself i don't have to do that anymore and I'm not. You have to figure out what works best for you, but remember to not give in to that voice telling you its not big deal just bite.
