    1. i dont touch silverware because the sound of it hurts (i use plastic forks and spoons and stuff)
    2. i have to step on the stairs with my right foot, and step off them with the same foot, and if i dont i will either go back and do it over or switch to the right foot or if i cant i will have a lot of anxiety

    no 1 I don't think so but no2 definitely sounds like OCD Obsessive compulsive disorder...

    I do have a bit of OCD myself, not extreme though but still....

    It's a definite compulsion, but some compulsions are managable. How do you feel about it if you fail to do these things?
