- Wedding: September 2017
I just posted in a thread about OCD and ill copy it here to give you examples of my brand of crazy. I am truly a weirdo at home and am thankful my SO just laughs it off and lets me do things in my own crazy way. my list is as follows….
ok… So I was diagnosed with OCD. I have gone to therapy and everything for it and as im older its much better than when I was a teenager but I still do things (much more under the radar though) that are a bit nutso.
-I will not drink out of an odd shaped cup. you know the type of cup where its like smaller at the bottom and bigger up top? it has to just be a plain regular shaped cup. like the circle at the top and circle ant the bottom have to be the same size.
-I will not eat soup out of a bowl. It always feels like im going to spill it I prefer it in a soup cup.
-I put my bathing suit in the dryer before I put it on if it is still damp from the day before (I have a pool in the yard so this happens often in the summer). SO does not see the point in drying it just to get it wet again. I just CANT STAND to put it on damp and feel how cold it is. drives me nuts.
-I clean my bathroom every. single. day. and i mean i bleach the toilet and tubshower. I mop the floor and wash the throw rug thats in there. I literally have 3 sets of decorative towels because of my obsession with bathrooms and cleaning them and keeping them neat.
-all of my towels are the same color (aside from the decorative ones) and I refuse to put any other color of towel in the closet because it will “throw things off”. what things I dont know but i literally wont sleep well knowing there is a “wrong” colored towel in my closet.
-It drives me crazy to leave myb edroom door open. I open it to walk in and out and at all other times its closed. Period.
-I LOOOOOVVVEEE making lines on my carpet with the vacuum. It literally calms me to make those lines. sometimes I make them and then walk all over it and do it again just for fun.
-I hate any dust on my television. i dust it multiple times a day for this reason.
-think im nuts yet? if not keep reading … 🙂
-I am crazy about thinking my car is unlocked. I lock it by hand when getting out and then press the lock button on my keys 3 times after that on the way in to my house. 3 times, no more no less.
-if i bump into a doorway or wall with one shoulder I have to go back and do the same to the other one, otherwise I just feel unbalanced.
-you know the fog on the mirror after you get out of the shower? I hate it with a passion. wiping it with a towel does not do the job for me. immediately when im out of the shower after wrapping my hair (since drippy hair on my back drives me nuts too) I use my blow dryer to clear the mirror and not leave water marks (ohhhh water marks how I despise you)
-I dont like hairs on the ground (remember my clean bathroom thing? ya this applies). after blow drying my hair I wet a paper towel and go around and pick up the hair thats around. I also use a hand vac when i really want to have fun with it.
now that I have exposed to the weddingbee world what a nutcase I am, I think ill leave it at that. So please if you ever feel alone in your weirdo ways, dont. I am probably worse 🙁
maybe not only ocd but what are some of your weirdest habits or hobbies or fixations?
