I am a young mother of 3 children ages 5,3 and 1. My husband and son both have Asperger's Syndrome and I have many traits myself. Since my life is so chaotic right now my OCD is getting WAY out of control. I used to just wash my hands 20-30 times per day and have irrational extreme thoughts that someone is going to get hurt all the time. I love to line things up. Now it has gotten so bad that I count EVERYTHING. I mean how many times I take a drink, how many seconds it takes to do something. I won't do anything in 3's or 6's. If I take 3 drinks by accident I totally freak out. If a light switch makes 3 clicks, I have to start all over to turn it on and back of so it will make 4. Not only am I driving myself crazy but I don't want my kids learning this nonsense. My mother says "just stop doing it" but I really cannot. I feel like such a freak!
