I’m Turning O.C.D.

I think I’m turning O.C.D., I really think so.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I have to count my steps or turn a light off and on and off and on and off, or anything like that. But it’s a whole host if small things.

Like making sure a light switch is fully in the off position. Or having to make sure all drawers and closet/cabinet doors are closed completely. Or like double-checking that my mouthpiece is still in my horn case, even when I know it is.

I’ve also noticed lately that my “clutter threshold” is getting lower. Not so much with my desk at work (because that’s always a mess), but in my condo. I can’t just leave a bottle of windex or a plant watering cup on the counter, even if I’ll use them later. I have to put them away.

In the evenings before bed I find myself wandering through my place picking up things and putting them away. Like I have to reach a certain level of tidiness before I crawl into bed.

This isn’t to say my place had no clutter; there are still areas (dirty clothes, cat hair, dishes) where messiness seems to be tolerated. It’s just that I can’t have dirty clothes on the bathroom floor– they have to be on my bedroom floor.

Or dirty dishes have to be in the sink, not on a counter or on the coffee table.

Anyone else suffer from something similar? Has it gotten worse with age?

    Nah – not me. I’ve got a pretty high tolerance for stuff too.

    Seriously? That’s hilarious cause I’m exactly the same way. Maybe it’s this house that does it to you; gasses coming up from the crawl space perhaps?

  3. I think it’s cyclical but mostly it may be because of all the stress and traveling. It’s a way of saving time – do it now while you think of it and so you don’t have to deal with it late. Just be careful, it
    s very easy to become OCD thinking about being OCD.

    I hate to tell you but it gets worse. For me it does anyway…

    Everyone has some degree of OCD. Usually at periods of stress is when it manifests itself the most, at least for me. Or when your in a big transition of some kind. Are you stressed about something?

    I am a kitchen and bath freak. No dirty dishes, nothing in the sink or I cannot go to bed. The bathroom counter has to be cleared and cleaned and I cannot ever re-use a bath towel. I shower, dry off and that towel goes in the laundry hamper in the laundry room.

    Has your psychiatrist adjusted any of your meds lately? ;-/

    Jesus, people! It’s CDO! Now the letters are in their proper alphabetical order.

    I have my one OCD moment of the day – when I’m getting ready for bed. I always check my alarm clock to see that it’s set for the correct time to go off. WHY?!!!!! I get up at the same time everyday, M-F. I haven’t changed the time on my alarm clock in over a year! There should be no reason for me to check the alarm clock – yet I do. Sigh…

    I make sure the light switch for the kitchen in the hall is up(on) or down (off) while the other switch by the door to the garage doesn’t matter. I also keep my silverware, glasses, and plates rotated. Otherwise, I let things go on their own. I guess I’m semi-OCD.
