Anyone have any obsessive compulsive disorders? I'm not asking you to be specific.

When I was younger I did. I had to touch things an even number of times. They say most people eventually grow our of it. I did. Laziness broke mine. That and the fact it isn't practical in my field.

I like, no, love, women's tennis. Have you ever watched Maria Sharapova? That woman must tire herself out with her ritual after each point.

She's not alone in the tennis world. Rafael Nadal looks like he's giving instructions to a Tomcat about to launch off the ship, or a baseball manager who's sending instructions to every member of the team.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

I don't have any serious ones, touch wood. I've used the same Lotto numbers for decades, as I just know they will come up immediately after I stop.
I worked for a boss once who had to wash his hands for 15 minutes after visiting the urinal. Not surprisingly he never married.

One more I had totally forgotten. When I was a little kid sucking snot, I had a habit of walking with my head down. It was because I hated stepping on pill bugs. The little suckers pop. They were abundant a few hands ago.

About the touching things twice. I had to kiss girls at least twice. It was to satisfy my OCD, they thought it was to satisfy me. Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

Me. Still have it now, albeit in controllable form.

Oh well, if shortening the front is what the Germans crave,
Let's shorten it to very end - the length of Fuhrer's grave.

My Anxiety tends to lead to very similar behaviour.

(The really fun part is that my Dentist can spot the symptoms, however my own family seem to lack any awareness)
