- hiding behind the sofa
I have no idea. I’ve done it since I was a child for as long as I can remember .I remember my mum telling me when I was a child I had counted the number of spots that were on the bedroom curtains. Used to know how may gates and lamppost there were on my way to school. And the number has no significance whatsoever as I can restart the count again without getting upset. My pdoc has told me its one of the most common forms of Ocd. I even count my food going into the shopping trolly Then on the conveyer belt. Then in the bag. It is annoying but doesn’t disrupt my day or anyone else’sWhy do you do it though? What compels you to? Do you think something bad is going to happen if you don't? Do you get anxious?
