    When I'm cleaning up my room or clearing out clutter I get so flipping stressed and angry over stupid things. This is going to sound really pathetic but there's a Wispa Gold chocolate bar in my room which is best before about 2 weeks ago and I can't make my mind up whether to bin it or eat an out of date chocolate bar. I don't like throwing things away but I don't want to eat something out of date. And it's really pissing me off. This is ****ing ridiculous. Also with old trainers I don't really want to keep them but I simply don't want to get rid of them either and just thinking about them being clustered in my room ****s me off. Is this OCD or something?

    Init! I'm thinking of just leaving everything and storing in everything in one big heap of rubbish and never dealing with it.

    Hate it when you're looking for something in your room and you take ****ing long time to search for it and then don't find it, then when you next come to tidying your room you're like oooh there it is haha

    My OCD is more the pure-obsessional variety then the constant cleaning/doing things a certain way but sounds like it.

    I used to be fairly loathed to part with things though. Not so much these days and rubbish is rubbish but let's just say sometimes I find a little nick-nack (even if it is just a nut or a penlid or something) and I'll hang onto it for a little while until I force myself to bin it/chuck it. If it is a nick-nack I particularly enjoy i'll chuck it into an old shoe box under my bed for future amusement.
