Would I have OCD?

Some people with OCD experience sexual obsessions that may involve intrusive thoughts or images of "kissing, touching, fondling, oral sex, anal sex, intercourse, incest and rape" with "strangers, acquaintances, parents, children, family members, friends, coworkers, animals and religious figures", and can include "heterosexual or homosexual content" with persons of any age.[13] As with other intrusive, unpleasant thoughts or images, most "normal" people have some disquieting sexual thoughts at times, but people with OCD may attach extraordinary significance to the thoughts. For example, obsessive fears about sexual orientation can appear to the person with OCD, and even to those around them, as a crisis of sexual identity.[14][15] Furthermore, the doubt that accompanies OCD leads to uncertainty regarding whether one might act on the troubling thoughts, resulting in self-criticism or self-loathing.[13]

This describes my mindstate 100% perfectly at times. But I don't know if this particular thing can make me have OCD.

Things I do is.

I some times never throw stuff out because I might need it one day.

When I'm talking with people I think about punching them in the face and stuff or hurting them in some sort of way.

Always ask people for reassurance.

Before I go out I have to check the hair straigtener like 2-3 times because I just forget and If i forget to I always think that the house might burn down.

But I'm by no means a neat person. My room is always messy with things always around and I never clean it.

I don't know. Would I have it? Where do I get diagonsed If I am? Am I?
