    I Get So Frustrated With It.

    I remember the earliest signs beginning when I was 7.  I would get these strange thoughts, like, Don't step on the brown floor tiles or your mom will be in a bad mood when you get home.  Most of my obsessions and compulsions back then revolved around my home life...

    Mild Ocd But Still Annoying As All Hell.

    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...
