My BFF's dad will take half an hour if he forgets a spoon or something in the kitchen when they're eating. He ends up completely rearranging all the cutlery. O_o He does that with everything, so he's usually late after being prepared to leave at a certain time and then feeling compelled to clean or organize stuff.

So, my friend saw her dad's OCD, and then she became more organized (she'd clean MY room when she came over. O_o), and now I'm more organized too. Kinda. I've always been a tad bit of a perfectionist though, and so is she. We don't have OCD or anything serious, it's just our personalities. It's probably the same with you, barbiegirl.

It has the characteristics of mild OCD. If compulsive behavior interrupts your life, in whatever form then I would think it is OCD.


There is a theory which states that if ever
anybody discovers exactly what the Universe
is for and why it is here, it will instantly
disappear and be replaced by something
even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

Exactly; I wouldn't call it OCD at all. That's like calling feeling sad "mild depression"; it's not.

If you can stop, you have no right posting in this thread. This is for people who do suffer from it. I personally have a very difficult time keeping my compulsion to organize other people's things in check, which is very different from wanting to have things organized. It is an obsession that takes over you mind and interferes with your life severely, not just a simple desire to gain attention.

Yeah... That's just organization. Not OCD.

OCD is a mental disorder. Don't claim to have something that you don't think you have. Like the others said, it you can stop, it's not OCD. My friend's dad has had it all his life, and it causes him to be late or lose focus on what's important. It's like when people say they're "depressed" to sound 'cool'. WTF is up with that? -.-
