Hello all. I have had these certain things in my life that have to be the right way for a long time, maybe going back to when I was around 17- I’m 23 now. They are lots of different things- having to count how many steps there are and making sure my right foot is the last one to take a step; the cutlery being the right way around in the drawer, clothes being in a certain order etc. I get really upset and anxious if someone does something in a way that I wouldn’t which makes me feel totally out of control. Even having to do these activities in a certain way makes me feel out of control. I haven’t been to a doctor because I hadn’t realised how impactful they are on my life. Does this sound like a form of OCD to anybody on here? I’m nervous to go to the doctors in case they tell me I’m being over dramatic and there’s nothing they can do to help me.
Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
