    When I finish eating, I HAVE to put my plate away. I hate having an empty plate just sitting there in front of me.

    Terrible for washing hands and constantly use a hand sanitiser when I'm out. I need Therapy.

    Aren't OCDs interesting? Another one I have is cleaning my nails over and over - if there is even a speck of dirt underneath them I scrub away.

      Ahhhh, don't change being nice... there are not enough nice people out there anymore... I do know what you mean though, usually the nice people are steamrollered in debates.

    I twirl my hair when I'm bored or anxious.  Wish I could stop.  It bugs me as much as it does my husband.

    When I'm traveling and check into my hotel, I can't do ANYTHING until I have completely unpacked, put away all of my clothes, got the bathroom all settled and Lysoled and Fabrezed the place.

    Even worse, before I set out on my trip, I find it impossible to pack unless every single bit of laundry is cleaned, folded and put away.

    Drives me nuts!

    I am a compulsive hand washer.  I, also, have to wash my baby's bottles by hand.  If anyone else washes them, I will re-wash them.

    heh, my pillows haveto be exactly in the middle of my bed before I go to sleep (then have to face left for 5 mins before turning over, facing right and going to sleep)! Oh, and no matter how thoroughly I check it, I will always doubt whether my car is locked!

    (These are just a few of em; there's a fair amount more on my obsessions and compulsions at the bottom of my hub on ocd: http://hubpages.com/hub/ocd-an-anxiety-disorder)
