No, I don't currently.

Yes, I used to know a guy with it. One day I called at his house because we were going to see his friends band. He pulled out this little compact and started dabbing his nose!!! I was freaked out, were going to a rock concert and he's putting on make up. Trying to be open-minded I asked hime about it. He went crazy and did everything but attack me!!

Turns out he was obsessed with some almost invisible acne scars and couldnt go outdoors without his ritual. Then he realised he hadnt told me about and apologised. He also had a thing about the number 3. He had to count any pattern of vertical lines in groups of 3.

I have a friend who has a thing about threes as well, except she can't stand anything that comes in threes or sixes. If she's eating a packet of sweets, for example, she'll throw away the third and sixth. On the bus, she'll never take the third or sixth seat back.
She also won't eat anything coloured green. She'll pick out green m&ms, or anything like that.

I could have sworn I used to suffer from this at childhood.

Your friend sounds a lot like me. I don't eat green stuff (candy) either. . . . . well, most of the time.

Also I like doing things to both sides of my body, if for say I licked my right index finger to flip a page, I HAVE to do it to the left, other wise I feel. . unsound.

Also I buy either 1 pack of something or 3 or 5, I don't like even numbers.
And I can't stand it when the sum of the digits on my radio clock is 6, 8 , 4 or 2.
Oh and I like having odd number of screens up in my computer. If the there are even numbers up, I'd open up a plain yahoo page. .just to make it odd.

3 is my favorite number by the way, and yes, I'm very odd.

I went through a phase of it when I was a kid. Amongst other things, I had to count lampposts. Great fun when we were travelling down the motorway for hours at a time. I still go through phases where I have to touch everything I walk past, often with both hands or three times. I wonder what it is about the number three?

Like, uneven? The same with me. If somebody touches my left cheek they have to touch the right in the same place for the same amount of time or I feel totally uneven.

Yea, I catch myself counting all my steps, theres one annoying problem I got over, Everything I said I had to spell out by writing it with my big toe, just the movements of the letters not actual spelling.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 4/9/04 - 7:21:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
Wow, I've done that. I never thought of it as a disorder though.. Ah, well..

I think everyone has varying levels of these compulsions, but it only becomes a disorder when it starts negatively affecting your life, which of course, is a very subjective definition.

Someone with some experience in psychiatry can correct me on that though.

Do I sound like I have it?

yes, me and my brother. Mine has gotten better with age, though. MOST of the time, I no longer have to "feel" a doorknob a certain amount of times or anything. Also when I was younger I would "write" things out with my finger in the air. Just random things. I've gotten better with age.

My best friend, as well as a few other friends and 2 ex-boyfriends were diagnosed with it. It's not so bad most of the time though from what I can tell.
