Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder - Click Here Repeatedly

There are six subtypes of OCD. Count them. Six. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Thank God it's an even number.

1. Checkers worry that incorrectly performed actions will cause a bad thing to happen.
2. Washers and Cleaners worry that germs and contamination will cause bad things to happen.
3. Orderers worry that having things out of order will cause bad things to happen.
4. Pure Obsessionals just can't stop thinking about bad things happening.
5. Hoarders worry that bad things might happen if they throw something away.
6. Scrupulous OCDers worry that they are a bad thing happening or about to happen.

Six. Yep, that's six. I better count again just to make sure.
