When you have OCD, you have a lot of pet peeves

I haven’t been very bloggy lately (Is that even a word? It is now!), but I am back and ready to do this thing. So if you are a dedicated reader and have been with me for a while, you will know that I am OCD. Well, being OCD, I have A LOT of pet peeves. Like a lot of them. Some of which people think are ridiculous. So I thought it would be fun to list all the pet peeves of my OCD self.

I have all the normal pet peeves that everyone would have like:

  • Not washing yours hands after using the restroom
  • Sneezing without covering your mouth
  • Chewing with your mouth open
  • Stuff not being put back where it belongs

You know, stuff like that. But when you are OCD, literally everything is a pet peeve.

OCD Pet peeves:

  • Using more than one cup a day
  • When said cups are left everywhere
  • When too much dish soap is used
  • When people walk around the house without slippers on (We have tile)
  • When both sides of the sink have dirty dishes (It should only be the right side)
  • When there are crumbs left anywhere
  • Sponges being used to clean the table when its suppose to be only for the dishes.
  • More than one sponge is used on dishes at a time
  • When someone other than me uses my body wash
  • Pillow cases not being on right (Tag in the back of the pillow case and on straight)
  • Clothes being under beds
  • Toys in my living room
  • Rug being crooked
  • My closet not being organized by season and color
  • Eating the last of the food in the house
  • Not eating any of the food in the house
  • Leaving toothpaste in the sink
  • Things not being lined up
  • CLUTTER. Any clutter anywhere
  • Crumbs anywhere
  • Books not being in order from biggest to smallest
  • Toilet paper not being on the right way (Yes, there is a right way)
  • Towels not being folded right
  • My dish towels being used in other places than the kitchen
  • Things being unsymmetrical

These things don’t just bug me… They make me sick. Literally, if something isn’t right, I can feel it in my stomach. It also makes me uncomfortable. If I can’t change something that’s not right, I hide or try to keep myself away from it.

See, pet peeves of someone who is OCD is a lot different than just normal pet peeves. It sucks, but it’s what I deal with daily.

  1. I like certain things the way I like them, but I know that is different than actually having OCD. I would just like to give you a hug for your list. I see the woman across the street from me and what she does every time she gets in and out of her car and walking into her house etc… I can’t imagine how difficult this is.

    On another note, I love your new hair color!! xo

  2. I don’t like to use more than 1 cup a day if I can avoid it. Now if I put milk in it it’s a guaranteed 2 cup day. My X would drink something and immediately put it in the sink. I’d set mine off to the side & come back it’s in the sink.

    Both sinks full irk me but my sink is incredibly small now so that’s likely why.

    I have tile… I guess you can call it tile & I don’t know it just feels dirty to me despite multiple deep cleanings so we have designated house shoes we wear.

    1. For whatever reason, people in my house like to walk in the dirty floor. Yuck

  3. I’m with ya girl, I deal with all those and more, well except for the slipper thing lol
