I have OCD, I'm really not sure sure how bad I am, but I like to talk about the things that I do obsessively. I'm always checking on things over and over to make surethat I did it right the first time. For instance, if I make an entry into my checkbook register I may go back as many as four or five times to make sure that I didn't make any mistakes. Usually there are no mistakes. This is what drives me crazy. Another bad habit that I have is if someone put something away from me, I'll have to go back and doublecheck that they put it in the right place, in the right position. If I'm talking to someone on the phone after I hang up, sometimes I'll sit there and worry if I said the wrong thing. Or if I placed an order on the phone or on the Internet I may have to go back several times to make sure that that I didn't make any mistakes. If I don't understand something I'll have to dig and dig until I find an answer, where other people would not worry about this, especially if it's not that important. I would like to hear from some other people that going through the same problems, and what they do to deal with it.

I have OC, before i leave my house everyday, i check my door lock about five times to be sure that it is looked. Even though i kinda have an idea that it is looked the third time, i still go back two more times anyway.
I also have to get a detailed explanation on things that i am interested in several times, i dont know why i keep going back, i am happy to know that i am not alone.

Books for Repetitive Unwanted Thoughts:

"White Bears and Other Unwanted Thoughts" by Daniel M. Wegner

I got these both from Amazon for pretty cheap.

I have ocd too and the first counselor i went to as I had the check and recheck oven off door locked etc, over and over and over again, she broke me of the habit by suggesting ibuy a small pocketsize notebook and write down on one side the bad habits and along the top say, the dates, when I checked each ITEM ONE TIME i was to put a check mark in appropriate spot in notebook that way when I left and thought OMG Did I turn off the stove, I could check for the check mark and that eased my mind, woujld not have marked it if I DIDNT turn off the stove, eventually didn't need the notebook anymore and only checked things once after doing them, i was shocked but it really worked.

Richard Carlson's book You can be happy no matter what is far from some cheesy book.. it has excellent tips to deal with depression and anxiety!!!!

Thank you so much for this sticky thread, it's very useful to share together all resources, both books & sites for OCD here. I gathered a lot of wonderful resources here that I'm gonna check at my leisure... & I really liked most the site of free downloadable papers for CBT work, that's something I've never thought I could ever find on the net & the books seem really useful but I don't know how to get them since I'm living in Egypt, & OCD books wouldn't probably be sold here Besides, ordering them from Amazon for shipping to Egypt would be awfully expensive

I run a site called OCD Dave at ocddave.com.
I'd recommend Judith Rapoport's The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Washing and Mark Crawford's The Obsessive-Compulsive Trap as good book reads.

Deep breathing exercises work for calming anxiety of trichotillomania urges. Also I do physical exercise every morning to avoid thinking about pulling my hair out. I'm still coping with trichotillomania for about 10 years now. I have more tips that helps me to avoid trichotillomania during the day, if anyone one need tips let me know. I hope this helps.
