My grandchildren are convinced I have OCD, so would be interested to know if you think this behaviour is normal:
I make my bed as soon as I get up.
I wash the dishes as soon as I have finished eating.
I put all my clean clothes into their appointed drawer or cupboard and all my dirty washing into the laundry basket.
I hang up my towel and clean the bath every morning.
I keep all my documents in labelled folders.
I answer mail as soon as I receive it.
I check my oil, water and tyres regularly and have my car serviced twice a year.
I make sure I never run out of essentials like toilet rolls, detergent, soap, bin sacks, clingfilm, milk, or teabags.
I check my bank statements, utility bills and tax forms with a calculator.
I find I am often called upon to sort out the messes caused by someone not doing any of the above. One of the reasons why I enjoy living alone is because there is no-one to untidy my flat. However, my books are crammed into my bookcases with no special system.
Should I be receiving treatment?
