When you have OCD, you have a lot of pet peeves

I haven’t been very bloggy lately (Is that even a word? It is now!), but I am back and ready to do this thing. So if you are a dedicated reader and have been with me for a while, you will know that I am OCD. Well, being OCD, I have A LOT of pet peeves. Like a lot of them. Some of which people think are ridiculous. So I thought it would be fun to list all the pet peeves of my OCD self.

I have all the normal pet peeves that everyone would have like:

  • Not washing yours hands after using the restroom
  • Sneezing without covering your mouth
  • Chewing with your mouth open
  • Stuff not being put back where it belongs

You know, stuff like that. But when you are OCD, literally everything is a pet peeve.

OCD Pet peeves:

  • Using more than one cup a day
  • When said cups are left everywhere
  • When too much dish soap is used
  • When people walk around the house without slippers on (We have tile)
  • When both sides of the sink have dirty dishes (It should only be the right side)
  • When there are crumbs left anywhere
  • Sponges being used to clean the table when its suppose to be only for the dishes.
  • More than one sponge is used on dishes at a time
  • When someone other than me uses my body wash
  • Pillow cases not being on right (Tag in the back of the pillow case and on straight)
  • Clothes being under beds
  • Toys in my living room
  • Rug being crooked
  • My closet not being organized by season and color
  • Eating the last of the food in the house
  • Not eating any of the food in the house
  • Leaving toothpaste in the sink
  • Things not being lined up
  • CLUTTER. Any clutter anywhere
  • Crumbs anywhere
  • Books not being in order from biggest to smallest
  • Toilet paper not being on the right way (Yes, there is a right way)
  • Towels not being folded right
  • My dish towels being used in other places than the kitchen
  • Things being unsymmetrical

These things don’t just bug me… They make me sick. Literally, if something isn’t right, I can feel it in my stomach. It also makes me uncomfortable. If I can’t change something that’s not right, I hide or try to keep myself away from it.

See, pet peeves of someone who is OCD is a lot different than just normal pet peeves. It sucks, but it’s what I deal with daily.

  1. I like certain things the way I like them, but I know that is different than actually having OCD. I would just like to give you a hug for your list. I see the woman across the street from me and what she does every time she gets in and out of her car and walking into her house etc… I can’t imagine how difficult this is.

    On another note, I love your new hair color!! xo

  2. I don’t like to use more than 1 cup a day if I can avoid it. Now if I put milk in it it’s a guaranteed 2 cup day. My X would drink something and immediately put it in the sink. I’d set mine off to the side & come back it’s in the sink.

    Both sinks full irk me but my sink is incredibly small now so that’s likely why.

    I have tile… I guess you can call it tile & I don’t know it just feels dirty to me despite multiple deep cleanings so we have designated house shoes we wear.
