Does anyone have rituals or routines they have to follow? I have certain things, routines, rituals, whatever you want to call it, and if something gets missed, it's like my brain glitches out and gets stuck in a loop, it's like a hole is drilled in my head and then filled with mosquitoes, and the rest of my day is utterly ruined and I can't function. I don't think it's the same as OCD, because it's not a repetition thing and once the specific ritual is complete, then I don't think about it again until the next day. My wife thinks they're just things that I want, not need, and I just get pissy if something is missed. She means the stuff that involves her, I'm sure she doesn't notice the things I do on my own. As an example, in the morning when she gets up, if she doesn't squeeze my foot when she walks by, it totally fucks my whole day up. I suppose to most people that sounds really stupid, but I'm hoping there might be someone here who actually understands it the way I do and maybe offer some insight on how I can help her understand I'm not just being needy and controlling and bitchy.
