I guess mild OCD is correct. Half didn't bother me, the other half would have me on the floor with a chisel and glue and I wouldn't stop until those tiles were perfect. Seriously, who does that?

I can totally relate to no.15 lol my boyfriend always leaves extra time on the microwave screen and every time I see it I'm like 'aaaahhh whhyyyy?!' and must immediately fix it, but the others, my gosh I could just not be around those things.

And probably moreso no.1 , I don't let other people use my stationery simply because it doesn't get put back in its correct order, and if cant remember exactly which order the pencils were in originally I spend hours reworking them until they're right...solution, no one but me touches my stationery and art supplies. I'm in a crisis at the moment because I'm having trouble finding affordable, different sized, yet MATCHING containers for my art supplies and as such everything is still unopened :( they can't be opened until they have storage and it just won't work unless it matches so for now, no art supplies for me.

I think the tiles and things that could not be fixed without lots of work bothered me the most. I would have had to have taken all the pills out of the containers and put them in something else. And who just pops a pill out of the middle of a pack?! No. And I probably would have thrown one away if there were an odd number (my current pill schedule mocks me every damn day, and it's hell).

And I totally relate to the need for MATCHING containers. I hate buying something I like to contain something, and then have it go out of stock, never to be found again and not having anything else to match it. Leaves lots of clear plastic for me, which I find incredibly boring.

Lol my boyfriend gave me my pills one night when I wouldn't get out of bed to take them and when I next looked at the pack he had taken them from a strange spot and I was like 'nooooo! how could you?' and he was like 'ummm what did I do' then I explained how he made it uneven, he just didn't quite get it and found it very amusing every time I went to take my pills after that until that sheet ran out because apparently I would pull a funny face and get very agitated. It was not funny however, I was so very happy when that sheet of pills ran out as I couldn't put them in something else because they were the kind that melt when taken out of their packaging. Silly pills I wish they all came in bottles, now that is nice and neat and tidy.

The only one that really bothered me was 1.

You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then the one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking

And racing around to come up behind you again
~Pink Floyd

gah. most of those made my skin crawl. I felt repulsed. especially with 3, 6, 8, 9, 11 (that is simply grotesque), 12, 13, and 19.
Diagnosis: Bipolar type I rapid cycling, PTSD, OCD, intermittant psychosis, general insanity
Past diagnosis: MDD, bipolar type II, schizoaffective disorder (this might have been a more accurate description of what I have, but who knows), depression
Rx: Lamictal 300mg, topomax 100mg, clomipramine (spelling?) 225mg, lithium carbonate, idk the dose.
Past Rx: Symbyax (made me paranoid), Celexa (worthless), Abilify (blurry vision), Geodon (made me paranoid), Wellbutrin (made me rage), Pristiq (worthless), topomax (worthless), emsam (worthless), risperdal (worsened diabetes and made me gain 82lbs, discontinued 10/2011), remeron (worthless POS that made me binge eat at night, discontinued 6/2012)

...In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid...

Those things bothered me and I'm a perfectionist, not OCD. My husband does have OCD and I don't think any of those things would really bother him unless he was in the middle of a ritual.

SZA, bipolar type.
