sip sip disease
Whenever I drink out of a mug I always have to drink out of the same spot otherwise I fear that I will accidentally drink out of a spot that has not been sterilized by heat and I will contract a fatal disease.
mine was named ian
In the catholic school, we were taught about our personal guardian angel. So each night before falling asleep in my twin bed, I had to scoot to the edge to make room for my guardian angel to also sleep. Not quite sure how many times, I ended up on the floor so my angel was comfy!!
like rings on a tree, but with nails
This one’s a bit weird. All the major breakups in my life happened on days that I cut my thumbnails. So if I am in a relationship, I make sure to keep my thumbnails at least a half a centimeter long, so as to keep my relationship going.
i have to have 911 pre-dialed into my cell phone every time i leave the house so all i would have to do is press the call button if i get attacked or in an accident. i fear that the one time i dont do this, something awful will happen.
When I was little, my older cousin told me that if you wear socks to bed, fungus grows and you’ll get sick, I still can’t wear socks to bed, no matter how cold it is.
fair and balanced singing
I count all the syllables in the lyrics of every song I listen to, and if they don’t come to an even number I sing an extra syllable to make the song ‘balance’.
only perfection will beat bowser
Whenever I’m playing videogames (more back in the day then now) and I come to an important part (such as a boss fight) I feel the need to rearange everything around me. If my clothes are uncomfortable to me at that moment, I will change them. I have to tidy up the space around me and find the perfect spot to sit. If I don’t do this I feel that my chances of messing up in the game are...
so.. it just sits there.
i can’t flush the toilet if i’m alone. i’m always scared someone’s hiding in my house, just waiting for a loud noise so that they can sneak up behind me…
clip, clip, crash
when i need to drive, i need to clip my nails first. if i don’t, i can’t stop thinking about what if i was in an accident, or even just had to brake suddenly, and they were somehow bent back or ripped out?
every morning i wake up and rub my face to see if there is some kind of deformation on it. i do this so that if something is on my face, i can recognize it before i look in the mirror, and be ready.
i jammed my locker with paper, what would i say?
Whenever I go into the basement of my house, I have to recite my 6th grade locker combination while switching the light on, or else I’m afraid the monsters will get me. (22-28-10)I’ve been monster free since then…
I can’t walk or sit with people unless there are more people on my right than on my left otherwise I get nervous, paranoid, anxious and lose focus.
i'd be afraid the caller would hang up
When my home telephone rings, i cannot pick it up in the gap between the “Bring! bring!” sound. i have to wait untill it makes the noise again for me to pick it up while it is sounding. This means i am always left standing with my hand over the phone for a few miliseconds..
we have a breathing theme today
When I was young, I’d hold my breath as I passed cemeteries. A friend had told me that if I didn’t spirits would enter my body. After my grandmother died I started breathing in deeply every time I passed one. I still do this.
in out in out
Whenever I encounter numbers or words I have to breathe in for odd letters of the alphabet and odd numbers and i breathe out for even letters and numbers for example…. I(in) a(in)m(in) n(out)e(in)u(in)r(out)o(in)t(out)i(in)c(in)
i don't inhale
I have to breathe out whenever I read the word “cancer” until I look away from it, otherwise I’m afraid it will enter my life and get me or someone I love. You wouldn’t BELIEVE how many times the word “cancer” shows up every day. It’s exhausting.
this is how my friend peed in the garage
every time i use the toilet, i’m always scared to use it in case i’m not actually on the toilet, but in a public place thinking im on the loo.
keep doing it, it's working
Whever I send an e-mail I have to wish it godspeed or good luck, aloud, because I fear if I don’t that it will get lost in cyberspace. Bonne chance to this neurosis!
i usually hit j
whenever a program tells me to “hit any key to continue” I have to hit K.
I must put my left motorcycle glove on first. In many years of riding I’ve had no serious accidents and this is why.
