Health.com: 10 Signs You May Have OCD

6 of 12

Organization

People with OCD can take organizing to the level of perfectionism. "It has to feel just right, look just right, be symmetrical, be the right number [of items]," Szymanski says. This fussiness is often driven by obsessions about order and symmetry.

When to seek help: "I'm neat and organized and like things a certain way, but it is out of preference," says Szymanski, author of "The Perfectionist's Handbook." OCD enters in when want to becomes have to: People like Szymanski enjoy a tidy desk and find it helpful, whereas people with OCD may not necessarily want to organize their desk but feel they must, in order to relieve their anxiety.
