Yeah I have a mild dose of it. Not for checking things are done like you but for keeping things straight etc. Like if our coffee table isn't running parallel to the planks in the wood floor I can't relax! Or if I put something down and say one corner of it is sitting on something so the whole thing is tilted I shiver and I have to fix it! Even if I try to tell myself it doesn't matter I always come back to it and fix it. Oh or another really weird thing is if I am using Excel in work and more than one cell is highlighted when I shut it down I absolutely have to open it back up again and "fix" it so only one cell is highlighted. Morto, I'm so weird! :-8

I think everyone has OCD to some extent. I have loads of things, would be here all day if I were to list them! :ooh One thing is that I have to have the volume on my radio on an even number at all times! :o0 Another one is when i go up the stairs I have to count each step in 4's, eg: 4, 8, 12, 16, 20 etc! [b:1obk1x6c]WEIRD[/b:1obk1x6c] I know! :o0 Also if I'm walking down the street I prefer not to walk on the cracks on the footpath!! Bit like Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets! :o0

Absolutely I have undiagnosed OCD. I have to get dressed a certain way - in a particular order. Right sock on before left sock, then right shoe, then left shoe. I can't, can't, can't do it the other way around. I wear a tunic for work and I have to brush my teeth before I put it on in case I spill toothpaste on it. Matching underwear - need I say more?! :eek Before I start the car I have to do my 'pre-flight checks' (as hubby calls it), so he prefers to drive, surprisingly! O:| I am really into symmetry (like matching items on either end of the mantle) and even numbers and I always know if something, like cushions, have been moved. :-8 My list goes on and on girls..... a total mental case!! :o0
