hi. i am new to this group and my doc just added mild OCD to my diagnoses when i was hospitalized the last time (i have many other mental conditions). i am trying to learn more about it since i dont know really which of my symptoms are OCD. basically, my problems with OCD are that when washing my hands, stirring something, packing ciggarettes or whatever i have to do it 25 times or i cant move on from it. it drives me crazy until i do it. another thing that i do thats odd, and this may sound weird, i dont know, is that if i scratch one arm or hit it on something or my legs or whatever, i have to hit or scratch the other side too. everything has to be even on both sides of my body. i dont know if this is what he meant by mild OCD or if something else that i do is what caused him to diagnose me with it. could somebody please help me? im just trying to find some answers as to why i do these things and what i can to about it. any help would be appreciated.
