How do you know if you have OCD?

Report as

Don't diagnose yourself... But... You should see a theripist if you have recurrent thoughts or images that intrude in everyday thought...( images like dirt, feces, germs)... If the thoughts or impulses or images are not just excessive worries... But about real life problems... You attempt to ignore these thoughts or impulses by using some other thought or action... Receptive behavior... You feel bound to rules made by yourself... You recognize that your behavior is unreasonable... do you have fantasies of violence?... repetitive doubts?... if you have a compulsive disorder do you recognize that it is irrational?...

Do you have control issues? Does everything have to be in place? Do the little things that should not bother you, bother you? Those are a few questions to ask yourself.

You repeat things MANY times and it's a necessity to calm you down.

Well....I think everyone has a bit of OCD, it is just what you obsess about! Severe OCD will obsess about individual or multiple things....to an extreme....like locking the door a particular number of times (more than once) just to make sure it is locked. If 5 is their number, then they check it 5 times every time not 4 or 6. The kind of OCD that is normal to moderate, I classify as that Type A personality, "Obsess Much?"...certain things really irritate you if they aren't perfect...but that is highly normal as just about everyone obsesses about something to some degree. :)
