  • That is one of the symptoms of OCD that even though u know your behaviour is different from others but u still do not find anything dangerous abt it. Well ur counting and cleanning are not harmful to anyone but u. U are investing your time in unneccessary things and the fear that does not exist at all. I uderstand it is hard to avoid such activity but when u want to do it start deep breathing. Well to be honest I am also a new patient of OCD just trying to help. Whatever I suggested is what I read about OCD. You can check too and find what works best for u. Stay happy and healthy.

    Best wishes.
