OCD
Since a lot of people here seem to have a mental quirk or two and since there already are more serious threads about it, I was wondering if someone might like to share their experience with OCD.

I myself have been known to have a compulsion or two (and to have gotten rid of one or two).

When I was a kid I would add letters while reading, until I got a sum total of fifteen; sometimes I could only use two words (e.g. one with 7 and one with 8 letters), sometimes - three, but they couldn't have the same number of letters (e.g. 3, 3 and 9 wouldn't work, but 3, 4 and 8 would), etc. I got to be very good at knowing exactly how many letters a word had just by looking at it for a second.

Then one day I was watching a subtitled movie (that was way back when I still didn't speak English) and I realised it was too much, having to follow the plot, read the subtitles and add the letters from the words in the subtitles. So that's when I realised I had to quit (or learn EnglishWink). Luckily I managed to do both.

I'm not saying that other compulsions didn't take its place (some have been religious), but still, it's not an easy thing to get rid of a compulsion or an obsession.

Anyone else had to struggle with compulsions or obsessions?
