Well I was diagnosed with OCD.....as a kid I was a hand-washer. I was meticulous and overly concerned with detail. Fortunately, I was able to
overcome some of these compulsions to the point that I am now a slob. Of course, I'm still rather meticulous.
Seriously, I am very meticulous and I am overly concerned with detail. Though I am not tidy, I do go on organizational binges. All of my magazines
HAVE to be in matching magazine cases, my CDs, DVDs and program Discs are all color coded in matching jewel cases. My library is arranged according
to subject matter, author and I even keep records on an Excel File.
With the threat of a bad flu season, I always care Purel hand disinfectant and I use it often. And, though not a hypochondriac, I am acutely aware of
any possible symptom ; i.e., sneeze, cough, wheeze, that might arise. I take vitamins, minerals, and quite a few herbal remedies "just in case".
My idiosyncrasies don't interfere with my day to day abilities to perform my responsibilities and I seldomly have colds, flu or any illness
whatsoever. Is this a problem?
