I go into the library and correct any books I see on the shelves that are in the wrong order, upside down, or backwards. It's not my job to do this It just bugs me to no end. At home I also put all the citruses in one bowl and the apples in the other, instead of two mixed fruit bowls.

Is this OCD, because it feels like OCD.

I have OCD and there's more to it than just wanting things to look right or be in the right order, you get weird urged and constantly have thought about things that might happen if you do something wrong. Like when I'm in the passenger seat of a car I sometimes get nervous about what would happen if I accidentally opened the door when we're going 70 mph. Or when walking behind someone on the stairs I don't like to walk to close to them in case I trip them and hurt them...

I've near enough gotten over most of the checking the order of **** stuff but the less serious stuff is like constantly counting things and ordering them even if it means nothing.

**** . I didn't know that was OCD. I get the urge to open the car door as well. I sometimes lock the door just to make me feel safe from myself. Not the only weird urge though, in art class I'll see the cup of paint water used to clean brushes and suddenly image myself drinking it, knowing perfectly well how toxic it is. I also am super careful closing the door when my cats are around because I don't want to slam it shut and accidentally cleave one of them in half.

I also eat things obsessively. Like when eating M&Ms I'll pick them off until I have an even number of each color then eat them in an order, 1 red, 1 blue, 1 yellow, 1 brown, and repeat.

And I never stepped on cracks as a kid. When on the sidewalk I would always be staring at the floor making absolutely sure I didn't step on one. I also tried to step in the same place on each section, but my stride was never long enough.

some of that is normal like the cracks and the m&ms but i'm the same with pets, when my sister had a hamster i always used to think about accidently stepping on it and sometimes i would hyperventilate... that stuff isn't serious it's actually spending your time doing things that is bad like constantly checking you haven't forgot anything when you leave a room and you can't stop thinking about it and go and check all the time and when you leave your house checking lights are off, doors lock etc it's just frustrating that part of you thinks it's stupid but you still do it all the time

I for one need to have both laces on my hoodie the same lenght, the top lid on my snusbox has to be put on so that it matches the **** on the sides. If you open a plastic bottle and press it flat, and but the cork on again, then I can't stop myself from opening it and press it back to it's original form. Also, I can't have any dishes on my table if I'm not eating, I can't look at it, it looks filthy and dirty and I just have to take it to the kitchen and clean it. It goes to such extent that sometimes if I accidentally slap my hand on a wall or something, then I have to do it with the other hand too, then I keep switching between the hands until both of them has been the same time and with the same force on the wall. Same with scratching; if I scratch my left knee, then I have to scratch my right knee. What is wrong with me?

Sounds more like perfectionism to me.

you most likely have OCPD, not OCD. OCPD means obsessive compulsive personality disorder

If it isn't a disorder to you, then its just Obsessive Compulsion.

That is just your mind wanting natural order in life; here is an example of true OCD.   
 Every day when you put on your shoes, you spend hours trying to get the laces the exact same length. Hours, just tying and untying your shoes. And when you flick the lights off, you flick them back on just in case the fuse went out. You go back and forth, off and on, till you finally leave. And then, you spend more time locking and unlocking your door, just in case the tumblers are broken.   
 That is OCD. You just want to see things in order.

I retie my shoes up to about 7 times to get the laces to be same length
