OCD is a serious condition, it affects people all in different ways. I honestly have panic attacks and anxiety when people move, misplace, and or touch my things in a negative way. The worst is my mom moves stuff and then forgets or purposely refuses to tell me where the item is. Are there other's like me who simply lose their minds when they are disrespected like this?
I am not OCD, but hae it when people move my stuff. I generally rmember where I put things, and it really makes me angry when someone moved something. The frustration level is elevated, because I am partially (legally) blind, and so chances are I won't' find something someone moved.
I'm not OCD, at least as far as I know. But it annoys the shit out of me when someone comes to my place and starts fucking with my shit. If you don't like it, gtfo, it's my place. I stopped inviting one friend in particular over because she insisted on changing the toilet paper so it was backwards, "Out of habit, because my cats attack it like this." Guess what, dickhead, I don't have cats and you need to hold it til you get to your own house now.
I don't have ocd but respect that others do. However, being a bit of neat freak who grew up sharing a room with a younger brother and having had many roommates as an adult, I understand the urge to tidy up or to move stuff if it's not where it belongs. It makes me anxious to have stuff untidy or where it doesn't belong, so I'm always picking up and moving stuff. Luckily my roommate doesn't care. LOL
You can touch anything of mine as long as it isn't on my desk and you put it back when you are done with it. My desk because I already have problem with my filing why would anyone want to make it worse. Not putting something back where you found it is just plane rude especially if it is one of my tools.
I don't lose my mind but, I would be lying if I said it didn't piss me off.
I don't care for when people move my stuff without asking or at least telling me.
Since you have OCD, I would think that people who know that should at least be more sensitive to that fact.
Why do you think your mom does that on purpose? Does she somehow think she's helping you by doing that?
