7 thoughts on “My OCD Confession”

  1. I think some people are more prone to OCD than others but I think we all have it in some capacity. Would you feel more at ease if you had an alarm system (even if it wasn’t monitored so you could have the beeps)?

    We were robbed when we lived in LA and have forgotten several times to close our garage door before going to bed (in CO and TX) and have left various doors unlocked maybe a half dozen times on accident. Now that Cakes runs around trying to escape at any opportunity she can, we’ve become more vigilant about ensuring the doors are locked but I’m sure we’ll let our guard down again.

  2. I have OCD about certain things too, and once I get something in my mind like wondering if the house is locked, I can’t rest until I make sure.

    It’s so weird how people used to leave their doors unlocked all the time. I even lock the car in the garage!

  3. I think it has to do with back then it was “Safer” to leave doors unlocked. We used to keep the door unlocked when we were not home when I was little. We would lock them at night but I am sure there were times when the door would be unlocked all night. I grew up in a really safe community. When I was in the 6th grade, there was a triple murder in my town. My sister was friends with one of the victims. It was huge because things like that didn’t happen there. I am OCD about locked doors too.
