Since no one has answered you, I will. I sometimes wonder if I didn't have a bit of OCD. Especially when I am deeply depressed.
I am one that when I live alone, I have to make sure the pillows on the couch are just right, the fringe on the carpets are groomed, etc.. I have somewhat let go of the urges, but usually during PMS it comes back......watch out world, I am coming with my Comet cleaner and toothpick to get every crevis in the house. However, with my meds, and added years, I've slowed down some. But, I still think about it.
When I did live alone--20some years ago--I would actually consider sleeping on the couch because my bed was made just perfectly. I think I come from this naturally because my great grandmother ran a bording house and everything had to be just perfect. My grandmother did the same. Her house was always PERFECT.... I could go on,,,,,,,
welcome to HW-Punky
Thank you everyone for the lovely birthday wishes. I had a good day so I'm thankful for that.
I hope everyone is having bright days and smiling a lot. I know talking about OCD helps and just knowing there are others out there makes me feel less isolated and lonely.
I have OCD....its under control for the most part, but i have been without medication (no insurance) so depression and OCD are creeping up.
I sometimes have to drive back home to make sure the iron is off, the doors are locked and the garage is closed...frustrating...I run an apt community and always feel like I forgot to set the alarm to the office or lock the door, or maybe that I lost keys somewhere...
I am a bit germ-o-phobic...lol always want to wash my hands and don't want people too much in "my bubble"
I have just found that some days are better than others...
Wish i personally knew someone who feels the same way.
