    It's time I finally told you guys that coming on to this site each day isn't really for leisure but a bit of a OCD habit of mine. specifically with the date stamp of the post. See I timed this thread to be posted at specifically 6 PM, why I have no idea.

    I wish I could stop caring about the date stamp but i have a fear that if I'm ever banned my last two date stamps won't be close to each other.

    I know it's foolish but I wish I could shut that part of my brain off.

    No you guys know. I fear I may have started something I apologize if If this gets out of hand.

    Hey Auto, I think it's brave to admit this. I'm a bit OCD about some things myself--I think many of us are, but not alwyas to the point you've mentioned.

    After many years here, I'm sure you'll see some support and encouragement, but I would suggest--if you haven't already--start talking to someone in the profession of helping folks with OCD.
    Good luck.

    I'm so sorry. But to me, it doesn't affect my opinion on you. You're still the grestest person on these board to-date :thumb

    I have my share of mental issues as well. But I don't think it is anything like you have described. Are you getting any treatment for this? Does OCD affect you in other points of your life?

    Hey Autovolt. I've been battling with severe OCD myself for almost 2 years. Its certainly not an easy task, but it gets better. I'm a compulsive handwasher and germaphobe and took a long time to realize I had a problem. Never feel foolish for something like that. Keep on truckin through it!

    I have OCD myself. Runs in my family. I don't have germophobia but I do wash my hands a lot. My brother and my mom have to have things in a certain order.
