That really sucks.
Meh, it's a liveable thing. It's annoying, yes, but not the worst thing in the world.

...whoa.

There's absolutely no way to resist the urge to do what they do? If there is a way to resist, what happened when they do resist?

OK, it's not like they lose control of their muscles or anything. Imagine the itchiest itch you've ever had, then multiply it by 10, and then try to resist scratching it.

Kind of like that (No, I don't have OCD, this is just what I know of the condition from various health classes)

Actually, there is a way to resist the urge.
You have to train your mind, and tell your self
"This is stupid, and pointless." when it happens, and try to fight off the urge.

Its hard, but its possible.

-I have OCD now, but its alot better now that i tell my self that its pointless.

Neh, I've tried it before. It sort of worked, then I actually found out that OCD was a thing. Now I just can't be bothered and try to live with it.

I know someone at school who has to have perfectly clean work. No spelling errors or messiness. He just can't accept it. I'm not sure if that's just extreme perfectionism or OCD like he claims, all I know is that it's about time he got his own paper and stops taking mine! Posted Image

When I was younger, I did have a very slight form of what seemed like OCD.  It was like having a radio in my head.  Constant noise, whether it was voices, music, sounds, looping sounds.  Went on for 6 months or so.  I would have to focus on a faint, but steady ambient noise and tune myself to it in order to quell the noise, and have quiet.

I don't remember what changed.  Eventually I either learned to consciously control it, or phased it out somehow, and it stopped.  Sort of led to me learning to playback, or reconstruct most audio I've heard with a decent amount of accuracy, like a music library built into my mind itself.

Hmm... this sounds more like perfect memory rather than OCD... and if it is perfect memory, then you are one lucky soul.

Can you go into more detail about that? Wikipedia didn't come up with much, apart from a song.

It's when someone has such good memory that they remember all and don't forget.
If I remember correctly, only about five living people have been recorded to have it.

Ah. I may have heard something about that.
My memory tends to be pretty good with some things, it seems to depend a lot on how much I care.

It can also be pretty awful, if you remember every or almost every single thing you have ever experienced.

Dunno if it's OCD or not but I have this thing where I'm told to do something I do it properly (For an example, unpack a box of tinned peaches, line them up, face out.) then they tell me to stop messing around and hurry up when I'm very confident that I have more than enough time to unpack everything and they just barge in and... "Help" me by throwing it into the shelf and I just want to punch them in the face. >_>

That sounds like somewhat OCD. But that does sound annoying, what those "helpers" do.

Especially since they all say "Oh make it look nice. :D" but then go "TOO SLOW! LESS NICE!" *Kicks my can castle over*

I am pretty sure I actually have OCD though I have never gone to the doctor for it as it doesn't effect me to bad yet(well most of the time). My dad was diagnosed with OCD and takes benzo's for it(repeatedly washes his hands, extreme germ-o-phobe, paranoid about everything literally). I get wierd about certain things that is hard for me to control such as setting my alarm clock when I have somewhere to be the next morning 10-15 times and checking it that many times. I also do some other weird things I am embarrassed to talk about here but they are repetitions. If I don't do it I feel extreme anxiety in my stomach from avoiding the urges.
