Re: Another "Do I have OCD" question
It's hard to say and clearly only a professional can diagnose but what I would say is that it is affecting your life and you are spending a substantial amount of time getting "stuck" with this ritual, then it is certainly worth seeing your GP about for a referral.
In my son's case we were told that if he spent more than an hour a day in the ritual, became distressed if he was stopped and it affected his life he could refer to a specialist.
If the specialist does say it is OCD there is tonnes of help out there, my son's consultant said it was the most treatable of all mental health issues. Go to the GP ask for a referral, if you are still at school your school nurse can refer too (If in England)
