more & more i wonder if i have ocd it always use to be a joke between friends & family but i love clean & i cant relaxe untill things are how i like it. i only do a big clean once a week but i try to vaccume or quick dust (thats what i call it) every day & every thing has to be in a certain symetrical order all the time or its a mess to me i dont get real aggitated when i cant do it but thats because i do it anyway (for example my boyfriend wont want me to vaccume i will anyways)and i never let him clean or do househild chore because in my eyes its not the right way.some times when i am cleaning or picking up i think if someone comes into my house to hurt me if everything is clean & perfect the police could find the intruder or evidence better because... well i dont know i just think it would help. other things that make me think i may have this is i always make lists, i dont like my food to touch i try to make as much of my life perfect weather its cleaning organizing ect. it helps me feel in control. when i was younger i was just a a neat freak (my mother is a messy person)but as i get older some things have gotten worse it hasnt taken over my life but im affraid these tendancies will get worse
It sounds like you might have ocd,if you have stress it is a way to relieve it.I am the same way but I don't dust or vacuum everyday,you need to relax and find another outlet besides cleaning.Maybe go for walks and think about other things besides the house being clean it is a neverending chore and you will go around in circles getting nowhere.
