OCD or not?
I have the compulsion to check everything twice before I leave home for office. I don't have any other compulsions as such. Is this generally being cautious or OCD?

Hello, Checking only twice to make sure if everything is okay is normal. It is a compulsion if you check repeatedly ,spending around one hour or more in the activity and are still not satisfied,leaving you with anxiety and recurrent doubts.
