    I think it would be wrong to say if so or not considering we’re not professionals but if you feel as if there is an issue, and you alone... go and seek professional help. They’ll help if there’s an issue and would be the best line of action.

    That doesn't seem normal, my love, I'm no psychiatrist but would definitely advise you to try to get some help. I think it may be related to your OCD. We skimmed the surface of OCD in AS psychology last year and it sounds like you have repetitive behaviours that you have to carry out to relieve the anxiety and irrational fears - which are certainly interfering with your everyday life very significantly. That type of thing is definitely classed as a mental illness, and your symtoms sound quite severe I really hope things get better for you Do you live alone or is there anyone who can help you by talking/comforting? Therapy etc. would be helpful but there's such long waiting lists all the time and depending on the doctor doesn't always seem to take mental health as seriously as it should be.
