OCD Keeps Me Humble

I discovered in the 90's that I had a bit of this OCD. It was torture sometimes wondering why I felt this need to count to 10 before making a turn, or if I dared say something good about myself something bad would happen, etc...

It wasn't as bad as some cases get, but it would get in the way sometimes. Being late because you have to go through this protocol before leaving the house OR ELSE.
I went on stage once, it was the biggest show of my life at that time, opening up for huge act in NYC. I was so afraid to appear to be 'showing off' (because something bad will happen if I do) that instead I had one of my worst guitar performances. I've learned to live with this. The good thing is, it keeps me humble.
