Ok, I have a new issue. My teacher has been thinking that I am OCD. Most of my friends now believe so too. But, I have a new problem. I can't stop clicking my pen. I dont buy clicking pens because I tend to click them a lot. But, I was given a clicking pen yesterday and when I got anxious I started clicking it. I click in a calming rhythm. No one really said anything about it. But, I clicked it for a solid 4 hours!
Anyways today my friends were playing with me. One of them knows I hate when people touch me at all. She would rub my arm or my leg and I would jump away. Its just how I respond. Even if she were coming at me I automatically move away. I dont even like to hug people. I never hug. Which is sad. I cant stand people touching me. But, anyways, she and another friend were doing that and they thought it was funny how I react.(they were just playing not meaning any harm) Well, somehow I ended up with tears. It wasnt so bad I had to cry, but I had tears! No idea why! But, I seen my pen, grabbed it, and started clicking. That was at 11:30 this morning! It is now 10:30 P.M. and I just stopped clicking it about an hour ago.
I sat in a daze and my friend realized how much being touched really bothered me. I sat in a daze clicking my pen the rest of the school day.
That means I clicked my pen between 8 and 10 hours STRAIGHT! Wow! Shocking to me too. No idea how. I dont even notice. I just do it. It is weird because it seems to calm me down. I guess because of the rhythm...I dont know.
But, any opinions on what I should do? Why is it people do things(such as click a pen)? Could this be an OCD thing? Is it all getting to me? Have you ever had a 'habit' like this? Or known someone who did?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much! Take care!
