I keep starting over and over. I have to rewash all my clothes, even though they are clean. I remember doing this as a young grade school girl. Even in college I would rewash all my clothes. Now I'm not so bad, but I can't clean. What I mean is, if I can't clean it perfectly I can't do it. for example, the bathroom counter. If I can't take everything off, totally wash the counter, the take each item, lotion, astringent, whatever and clean each item then I can put it in it's place. But as far as just straightening up, I can't do it. so if it can't be done perfectly I can't do it. Is that OCD? Also I have to start over....like if I start exercising and I miss a day or something messes it up, then I start over, but I can't start over then or the next day. It has to be a special day...first of the month, first day of summer, Easter, Sunday, but that's kind of hard, my birthday, first day of school year.
I also have trouble focusing, my mind wanders like crazy. I have had some success with that by talking either ritalin or Adderall. These seem to help me focus, but is there anything to be done for my OCD?
It also affects my dress. I wear the same thing every day., not the same clothes, but the same thing, same color, same everything. Is that part of it or is that just wierd?
