I think I may have a form of TOCD, or touch OCD. I've always had a need to have everything that touches one side of my body to touch the other in the exact same way with the exact same pressure, but I thought it was just a quirk. However, when I think about it it gets worse, which makes me think I'm making it all up. It interferes a lot with homework and general tasks, but sometimes goes away. I've found recently that if I touch something in a specific way and feel the usual urgent need to touch it the same way on the other side, the only way to not do this is to have a small, I guess, tic attack. I spaz around for a few seconds and get a migraine, but hey, at least I didn't have to tap the kettle 14 times!
