OCD

I’ve never really wrote about my OCD. Probably because it’s not a huge problem and it doesn’t really bother me or anybody around me. But I totally get laughing when I’m telling people about it. You see, I have this strange fear. This apprehensiveness and mistrust towards odd numbers as well as the number 10. 10 is my unlucky number. It always has been. So here’s the situation.  My car radio’s volume is way too quiet on the number 8. Perfect on the number 10. Yet way too loud on the number 12. So I have to plug my iPhone in, turn it on 12, and then turn it down on my iPhone. Catching my drift? It’s super weird. Yet so funny. I hate the number 10. I cannot and will not have my volume set on number 10. As far as the number 1? You might not want to get me started. I won’t program radio stations on number 1, just because I think number 1 is sort of not fair. It’s a one-sided number. And I just don’t like it. Now what about billboards? If there’s something written on a sign or billboard that I didn’t get the chance to read ALL OF, I literally have to exit, get back on the freeway going the OTHER WAY. Exit. Get back on the freeway going the original way…just to read it. It’ll bother me the rest of the day if I didn’t get to read it. Even if the billboard is about nothing amusing to me in any way, I still gotta go back and read it.

 I don’t think my silly OCD ways bother Trev too much. He just knows to put the volume on an even number besides 10 and he’ll be my best bud for the eternities.
 Do you have any weird OCD habits?

  2. I'm just like you. I can't stand weird number volume's in the car. hahaha and I always have to equally do things with my left or right side. like if I chew 3 starburts on the right side of my teeth, I need to chew the next three with the left side.

    WEIRD. hahahha

  3. I used to be like that too (with odd number volumes), but I've gotten over it. I forced myself to keep it on odd numbers & it actually worked. Haha.

  4. I have a million different weird OCD things, like way too many. Mainly all stemming around even numbers. I hate odd numbers and they are bad lucky. I have to have the volume of anything on an even number and always like even number channels. If I'm walking and my heel touches a crack I have to consistently do it from there on while I'm walking until I've hit an even number of cracks on that heel. Same goes for touching things, always double check the locks. I've got a million more, oh and cleanliness, a lot of OCD around that. Luckily Ryan doesn't care.

  5. This post is so funny! I don't have any OCD habits but I totally understand stange fears. Like Bubbles. How they float. Weird. I know there is a science to it all but bubbles just freak.me.out.

    And I have a fear of Trader Joe's... saw an accident in one and took 8 years to go back inside one. That day, another accident. I'll never go back.

    Oh, and dress up characters... Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and Macots at sports games... NO THANK YOU! So creepy!

    Xo, Happy Thursday!

  6. This is so interesting! I used to have some similar habits but not so much anymore. I do this thing though when I count the corners of the walls in the room and spell out words with them. So if there are 4 walls there are 16 edges and so I pick a word, say Happy. I spell out H on one corner then a on the other and keep going through all the corners until the y in the word happy ends on the last corner. Am I completely insane? That sounds much weirder written out than in my mind hahaha

  9. I'm the same way. When I'm watching tv and I turn the volume up it has to be on an even number. That's funny about the billboard though. But you're getting those people's money out of it that put it up :)

  11. lol so funny! I'm kind of like that, if I drop bathroom towels on the floor, (and only the bathroom ones for some reason) i have to pick them up and put them back correctly or I fear something bad will happen to me lol

  13. That cracks me up - I'm weird about numbers too. The radio has to be on even numbers, unless it's 4 or 6 because then it was to be on 5... or 14/16 < 15. My husband knows I'll grab the remote or "fix" the car volume if it's not right so now he just does it for me haha
