Patient :Hello I am Gavin
Lately I have become very anxious. This is due to a mental problem I've had to deal with since. 5 grade. I have to count, snap, or touch my fingers for every item I pass and or see. Sometimes I only have to account for big items but lately I become very anxious if I don't account for every thing I see. I'll even be forced to far to count the leaves on trees. Do I have OCD or ADHD?
