Re: Checking the door - drives me crazy!

I began to eliminate things that caused me anxiety. Luckily, mine has gotten better over time. It used to take me a long time to leave the house because I was constantly checking. I gave up using my curling iron because I was so paranoid about it and most of the time I will forgo using my coffee maker in the morning just so that I don't obscess about it all day. But it did help me to take a picture of it. I can understand if you have many things that worry you that it may not work for you. Have you tried medication? It may be a good idea to see a doctor.
