It's almost over at this section of the world, which is why 41's comment does indeed make sense. Assuming kiwi's have the same school year system as Aussies (assuming 41 is kiwi due to their screen name)

I am too...people cannot ever understand when you have OCD and they think it's funny to tease. I go nuts when people smack their gum during class. You're not alone OP.

How can I be YOUR lady friend, zingline, if YOU'RE the girl in my photo, unless you're the guy, which is me, which would make this while situation even weirder... O.O

I just read this whole thread, and now my head is full of f*ck! Pleonasm is somebody's girl, but he's actually a girl and she's a guy, and their phones are covered in jizz.

It's a lot harder to get over OCD than people think (though it certainly doesn't help that so many documentaries portray it as something that can be gotten over with sheer willpower and a bit of doctor's coercion).

I have trichotillomania (the obsessive compulsion to pull and twist my hair until it breaks) and it's something I personally HATE doing. I'm scared that one day I'm going to have bald patches from all the hair-pulling. Yet I can't stop doing it. If I'm bored or doing nothing with my hands, I find myself pulling at my hair. And I don't even realize I'm doing it until someone points it out or I pull my hair so hard it hurts. It's a hard habit to break. Especially when your brain is telling yo you HAVE to do it. It's like this little voice is in your head saying, "Do it! Do it! You'll feel better once you've done it!"...except you never DO feel better. Because your brain is constantly telling you to do it all over again.

My mom had OCD in her teens and early twenties (my grandma and aunt do as well) but she somehow stopped before it got too bad. So it is possible, though just like with any mental disorder (I have anxiety, school phobia, and a bit of OCD) it's not an easy thing to do, and not everyone can do it (whether on their own or with the help of a doctor). I wish you luck though OP, I can't even imagine how terrible it must be.

Same for me. OCD in my teens and early 20s. I'm now 25 and my OCD rituals (mostly involving walking and clocks) have reduced dramatically. I think they were mostly due to stress. Recently taking control of my weight and happiness has helped me.

I have OCD where I have to push the cross walk button 3 times before I can cross it. If I don't I psychically can't make myself cross the street. It's definitely not something that I can just "get over" despite what people try to tell me.

I'm not sure what you would call it, but if someone has mismatched shoes or socks, it makes me physically ill and I can't look at them without getting really freaked out. I have to take my shoes and socks off really fast because I cannot stand for my feet to be different.

59- ah, paraplegia might be just a TINY bit different to OCD, next time you want to comeback at someone, make sure it's actually in category of relevance for it to make sense!

At least it's not farting when people fart, or sneezing when people sneeze, or laughing when people laugh, or jumping when people jump, or burping when people burp...or! All of the above! :O
