Do i have OCD

hello, i am 13 years old i think i have ocd. i do many weird things. for example. if i touch something with my right hand i think that i will be killed or my family will, but if i retouch something with my left hand 3 times, that thought will get ignored for a while. i also make weird sounds like lip smacking and mouth noises that sometimes i dont even know i am doing it! also i wonder if you could tell me if something led me to pick out all of my eye lashes because i do know why i did it, and i still do. sometimes i dont even know i am doing it. i want them to grow back too. but the noises and re touching stuff really bothers me alot. please help!

Re: Do i have OCD

Hi, It definitely sounds to me like you have OCD. One of my OCD problems is that I do pull out my eyelashes and eyebrows and I have done it for as long as I can remember. Until I was diagnosed, I had no idea that this was related to OCD. I still don't fully understand it. It is something that I don't even realize that I am doing sometimes; for instance like when I'm watching T.V. Anyways, you're young and it's nice that you are realizing early what is wrong with you. Most people don't get diagnosed until later in life, usually in their 20's. I would suggest seeing a therapist. Good Luck. Beth

Re: Do i have OCD

hey chad, just wondering if you've ever talked to anyone else about this stuff like a friend, or family member. sometimes it's too embarassing to talk to these people but a therapist might help. this definitely sounds like OCD, there are varying forms and degrees of the disorder; but hey, i'm no doctor! i still don't know if I have OCD or not.

Re: Do i have OCD

Yes you have OCD. "if I do this behavior, then something bad wont happen", you fell less anxious for a while. That is OCD. I have read that cutting out caffeine from your diet helps with OCD symptoms.
