RE: What's Your O.C.D.?
As a kid, it was multiples of 4. If I was going up a flight of stairs, for example, I'd count them and if it looked like the number of stairs wasn't going to be a multiple of 4, I'd skip some of the stairs (i.e. step over 1 or 2 at a time) to make sure my number of steps going up the stairs ended being a multiple of 4.

I sleep nude. It's a time saver for a middle of the night romp between the sheets if you really must know. Tongue

I was actually referring to wall mart -- I've never been inside one. In fact, I never saw one until I moved to Oregon. They didn't have any of those when I lived near San Francisco.

RE: What's Your O.C.D.?
As a child, my food could not touch one another. This made the eating of casseroles impossible which was no doubt frustrating for my mom who was feeding a family of 6. Happily that idea left me as I got older. At the age I am now, I have a few things that bug me. The dishwasher has to be filled a certain way, the glasses and dishes have to be put away just right. I don't see it as OCD though. I see it as making the best use of space.

There is a calender checklist for each month as well. And I have to do it in basically the same order every day.

I became the same way. I think for me, it became about controlling what I could. When the boys were babies, so much was completely out of my control, I began to seize control over things like the housework, laundry and meals. Blush

I think mine comes from the fact my mum is a bit of a hoarder. I was already worried about messes before hobbit but it's worse now. Lol

I became a neat nut after my first child was born and I'm not a naturally tidy person. I like a bit of clutter around. But after my first daughter was born I had to keep all the toys in order and the diapers organized and everything clean.

I think it has something to do with the nesting hormones that are surging throughout your body. When you're nursing your body produces prolactin which is such a wonderful calming hormone. I could be wrong but I think oxytocin is also floating around in your body.

For me it lasted for two children born two years apart and four years total. I then went back to my happy clutter.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Only time my house has ever been clean was when I was on ADHD meds.

ADHD - it's the anti OCD.

RE: What's Your O.C.D.?
I just thought of another one...this one really makes me twitch..

People who post pictures, say a view outside their window, but the picture is taken far enough away that you can see all their crap lying around.

Seriously....

Take a moment to clean your crap filled kitchen table up or move closer to the window.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Scientific inaccuracy, especially if it is done with someone that ignorant and if it is in any aspect of biology(pretty much my spectrum of science). When it is someone I know trying to be scientifically in accurate to bother me, I am unfazed, but when someone, even my friends don't know something and state it as fact, something in me wants to blow up. I.E when my friend said that t-rex and velociraptors lived in the same area, I wanted to scream. I also went onto more scientific inaccuracies on the t-rex but I was able to keep my cool as I consider him a brother.

Karl Marx was funnier. Tongue

Half of the posts in this thread apply (or applies? Chas?) to me.

When I start a project, it must be perfect. It needn't stay perfect, but I must at least make it perfect. e.g. My truck is filthy. One day I will clean it, and every spec of dust, dirt, and spilled soda will be scrubbed until it is immaculate - not a mark or spec of dust to be found. I will spend 10 hours on it, easily. It will look as good as the day as it did when it rolled off the assembly-line. Eight months later it will look like it has been the daily driver of the creature from the black lagoon, and I will start again.

"apply" Half is a collective noun.
