I've never told anybody this because it's quite weird but it's been happening for many years.
For example at work I work with numbers a lot. So when I'm inputting number into a spread sheet or something I will check the number I've inputted several times. It might just be the number 100 but I will keep checking it to make sure I've typed 100 even though I know I have. And I'll keep checking it constantly like 10-15 times before I'm satisfied that I've definitely typed 100.
I also do this weird thing where I kind of have a night time ritual. I cant sleep unless my curtains - the top part - eyelets I think they're called are equal measurements apart and unless my matters is fully pushed into the top of my bed and my laptop is placed a certain way on my table.
Luckily nobody's noticed I do things like this.
I've googled this and apparently it's a form of OCD. But I always thought OCD was a cleaning obsession. I constantly feel the need to wash my hands but that's about it I don't really care so much if my room's messy or my desk at work.
Does anybody else have such habits? Is there a way to stop? I feel it affects my work and I take too long due to my checking habits.

Go to your GP and tell them all of that, they may be able to help.

Go to your GP, that does sound quite obsessive though
