    Unhappy going crazy...

    Mine used to be hair straighteners. Every morning during the drive to work I would worry about whether they were on or off. One day I had to make excuses at work and drive all the way home to check. Then I came up with a solution. Every time I unplugged them, I ticked the back of my hand with an eye liner. I still had a jolt every morning (of "Have I? Haven't I?) but checked the tick and was fine. I did that for over a year!! Until I grew my hair a bit so I don't need them anymore! Phew.

    Now it's the iron. I use it every morning and still have a jolt on my way to work. Even gone home at lunch to check. Hmmm perhaps I should start up the ticking again!!

    P.S. Every time I've gone back to check - NOTHING is ever on!

    A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.

    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - something we all have a touch of but some people take it to the extreme where it has a detrimental effect on their everyday life. It can really take over your life and that is when you need to get help from a specialist.

    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, kevin. It's when you feel a compulsion to do things over and over again, like switching lights on and off, opening and shutting doors etc - lots of people have rituals that they go through and they think that something bad will happen if they don't.

    That is the more extreme side - sometimes - as has been said before - it's sorting things - making sure they are sitting properly... not standing on the cracks in the pavement etc.

    Most of the second behaviour is quite common but can turn into an obsessiveness over time.

    It means, 'Obsessive compulsive disorder'. A common example is the repeated washing of the hands.

    Here is a link to explain about OCD. Seems to be related to intense anxiety...

    Thank you all for those explanations, I suppose I should have googled it but then thought thats what forums are for.
    The only one I have had contact with that may have suffered with this condition is a youngster that I used to coach at rugby.
    He was a talented player and just stoped playing. I called at his house and he answered the door wearing rubber gloves ( which I thought a bit odd ) but may have been washing up. He told me he was getting behind with his studys and would resume playing when his exams where finnished.
    A little while later I saw him driving his car with rubber gloves on and when a made some more enquiries people close to him informed me he had this disorder. At about the same time Jimmy Corkhill on the programme Brookside suffered with the same condition and gave me a better understanding.
    I have a thing about not putting milk and suger in a cup of tea before removing the tea bag first.?

    Are you sure you've actually turned round 3 times? Have you ever done it and lost count then done 1 more to be sure? Don't mean to make you paranoid but......
