Hello. So i have done some research and what is going on with me fully relates to OCD. For about 3 or 4 years now, these kind of things have been happening to me- my brain tells me i always have to do things like step in certain patterns or to avoid "imaginary lines" my brain creates. My brain will tell me "ok stop here and walk in place 20 times or something bad will happen to you." and i feel the need to do it. I always count the number of times i do something and then my brain tell me to do it again untill i reach a certain pattern or have done it an even number of times. my brain is obsessed with these kind of things. i think it's messed up that i let this control me. i try to stop, but i have been doing it for so long before i knew about OCD, that it has become a habit. Do you think this is OCD? If so, is there anything i can do to control it? or should i see my doctor? SIDE NOTE: my doctor recently told me i have panic disorder, but my panic disorder only started in may, while my obsessive behavior started a few years ago. Could panic disorder be a branch-off of OCD? thanks.
