What is your reactions to people touching or moving your personal belongings?

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 don't hace OCD but there are two things I resent....deeply. A) Don't come to my place and tell me"" the couch will be better under the window"" and B) Don't tell me to be "diplomatic" with my words.

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 hate it but not because of OCD, just because I don't want people I don't know touching my stuff

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'm not happy with it. But I'm only a little OCD about just a few things. I think most of us are. But I agree that it's disrespectful when the person knows you're afflicted.

I prefer that people leave my stuff alone, maybe that's why I live alone. When my girlfriend comes over, I specify that she is not to clean up my house. It's messy, but I know where things are.

I'm like that to a degree.
I can handle someone touching or moving my stuff, but not to the point of me not being able to find it.

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?

I think my mother is bipolar..and emotionally stunted by past abuse..she has the emotional maturity of a teenager...I actually think she gets joy out of hurting or torturing me...
@Ravenwolfcasey: Sorry to hear that. I have someone in my family like that. I avoid them whenever possible.

I can relate to your feelings. I had the same problem with my partner constantly "tidying up" and then not knowing what she had done with things.

I don't exactly have panic attacks , but I would prefer they didn't..
I think that you may want to read a book "Dont sweat the small stuff,
AND it's all small stuff"

If you know the person is OCD, then yes, it's disrespectful. If you don't know, it should be forgiven. I'm not OCD and hope I haven't caused any unnecessary anxieties by my careless actions.

My mom totally knows I have anxiety and OCD
@Ravenwolfcasey Yes, I don't have any advice for you in that regards. Does she live with you or just come over to move stuff around?
