  • Do you have any OCD type quirks?

    I have 4 things that people consider weird and have called OCD.

    Three of them involve food.

    1. I can't have my food touch other foods on my plate.
    2. I have to eat all of one thing before I can go to the next thing.
    3. I can't eat food someone has cooked at home and brought into work or church.

    4. I can't ride in an elevator with someone I don't know. If I can get in alone I will use the elevator, if not then it is the stairs. In tall buildings, sometimes I will just wait until I can hop in alone, and I have even gotten back out if someone pulls the jump in at the last moment deal on me.

    So what do you have that people think is OCDish or quirky?

    I twirl my hair a lot.

    I used to bite nails, but I haven't in a long time.

    I'm very superstitious about my fencing weapons and always have a ritual that I follow before a tournament.

      I have a passion for smacking the liberal, leftists, socialists of the world and love exposing the fallacies of their positions and agendas.

      But that's not wierd, thats righteous.

        Checking locked doors (to make sure they are really locked) and putting things such as papers, books, etc. at proper angles on my desk. Sad I know...

          No, not sad. Neat, organized, particular... yes.

          I am often accused of being OCD, but it is an over-used term. Similar to ADHD, it is thrown around alot.

          Just because I have to sort my M&Ms before I eat them (arranged in prismatic order before consumption...) doesn't mean I'm unusual in any way...

          Does it?

            I have CDO. It's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order AS THEY SHOULD BE!

            But I do think the term is over-used. Everybody has quirks, it's not OCD unless it disrupts your life.

            I have a paralyzing fear of illness and always wash my hands. But that doesn't really disrupt my life. However I did get a diagnosis of mild OCD when I was nine for certain compulsive writing habits that threw off my schoolwork. Every letter had to be perfect or my mind would just about catch fire.

            However digital technology cured that problem. I still have handwriting compulsions but now I type so it doesn't bother me.

              1. No.

              2. Some times. I tend to eat the items on my plate sequentially; unless those items taste better if I mash them together (like fried eggs & grits). It's not so much OCD, as it is that I like to eat my favorite item on the plate last.

              3. No.

              4. Sort of. When I'm walking from my Jeep to the parking garage elevator in my office building, I will set a pace that gets me to the elevator by myself if possible. I won't not ride in an elevator with other people. If I can't avoid riding with other people, I'll still get on the elevator... but I prefer to be alone when I'm riding the elevator in the morning. People have an inane tendency to want to strike up a conversation on elevators. At 0730, I have no idea how my day is going; nor do I care how their day is going.

                I'm the same way with my Smarties, except I stack them "by color" before eating. . .
