    I have many, many little things that are OCD in nature. Nothing is so bad that it effects my life to the point that I can't function, but it's definitely to the point where I notice them. Things have to be in a certain place or I start getting anxiety. The order or cleanliness of...

    How To Tell Someone You Have Ocd, Without Embarrassing Yourself
