    I have this horrible "disease" where if some material thing i've purchased is flawed in appearance it gets me to the point where i'm upset and i have to exchange the item and if the item i exchanged it for is flaw i will exchange it again, its a process that never ends.The item can be in working order i just feel the need to have a perfect item, i really don't want to care what the appearance but something inside me clicks and says otherwise.I just wish someone would tell me it doesn't matter.

    Something that is also driving me nuts is that i have to check the locks on my doors a hundred times before i leave my house.Is that normal?

    Sounds like you have OCD.

    'Normal' doesn't really come into it, it's quite a common problem that lots of people have.

    I did to a small degree but it is better these days.

    Am sure there's probably quite a lot of info about it around this forum.

    Sorry you're feeling alone with it at the moment :( :hug:

    Have you been to a doctor? There are treatments that can help you.

    Yeah looks like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Like your quote. There's psychological treatment, as well as medication. Chin up buddy.
