Certain Numbers Are Bad

My former next door neighbor's birthday was March 20 (3/20). For some reason if the time is 3:20, or a minute before that or even a minute after that, I can't do anything at that time. The number 20 is bad. The number 19 is bad because it's right next to the number 20. If I look at the clock and then 20 minutes later I look at the clock again and I notice that 20 minutes has passed, I worry. Or I feel like I have to complete some ritual where I look at the clock 22 minutes later or more. I know this doesn't make sense but I'm stuck in this ocd ritual right now. I was watching tennis and I noticed the clock was at 4:32. Then I look at the clock again at 4:51, 19 minutes later, which I consider a bad number. I don't want to complete some stupid ocd ritual of looking at the clock 22 minutes later but I don't want the nagging ocd thought to fester. Can somebody give me some advice on a way not to consider the numbers 19 or 20 as bad numbers. Does anybody in this forum have a similar problem. Any advice would be appreciated.
