Hey there checkers! I was just wondering if anyone find it more compelling to check when they are on their own with noone else in the house? That happens to me all the time-I hate it!

Thank u for your comment mate. I always said that ocd didn't affect my work but i'm finding that all tis report writing and test marking is stressing me out so much that i keep checking them again and again to make sure i've got them right. Ahhhhhh!

yeah, i think being alone definitely makes thigns worse! because you have nothing to hide from anyone and the ocd can run riot more easily. i'll be living on my own from next weekend for the first time in years, i'm certainly aware of how much harder it will be to keep everything under control when left alone.

hey, i wish u well with that mate, let me know how it goes. I still live with my mum coz i'm too scared to live alone-i feel like the ocd will get 10 times worse if i live on my own. I'm sure it wouldn't but thats a big fear of mine.

I'm worse when I'm alone too. But sometimes when I'm not alone I'll get someone else to do whatever it is I'm worried about and I seem to be able to trust that it's done correctly if someone else did it. So that might be why. Like when my family and I were on vacation in February, I shared a room with my sister for the first time in years. And I just got into bed and was like "oh, can you shut the door?" so she did and it was such a relief because for some reason I just knew it was shut. It's the first time in about 4 years that I really knew the door was closed. And the worst is eating or drinking anything that expires. Like milk or lunch meat. I won't eat it if I'm alone. But if someone is home I get them to smell it for me and make sure it's okay. No matter how far away the date is, I need someone to tell me it's okay or I feel like I'm eating poison. I want to work on that though because I don't want to be that dependent on others. :(
