    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, that does sound quite obsessive though
