Hello and Greetings to all

OK Now i will try to be short , i have problem with my brother for like 10 years now , hes 31 year now.

The problem is that he started touching things , like he wants everything to be in the same place , not allowing to move them , and he spends like 5 hours per day just touching them and going around the rooms , throwing clean towels for washing , washing the toilet , cleaning hands , touching the icons from ****s , touching charger cables to be in the same exact position , pictures , frames , books , he got what i say a ritual.

He seems to be doing this when hes very upset and as a daily routine.

He dont agrees to go to psyhylogist , but i guess he will have to do that.

Anyway , hes not a smoker , drinker , no accidents in past or as kid , never used any sort of drug , not a gambler , no debts , nothing!

Now we took one picture out of the room that hes touching all the time and i want to see his reaction when he sees its moved, usually he starts to ask where is it and making pressure until we return it but now we wont return it.

I need opinions in this or maybe i can be more detailed if anybody can help me out or has any clue.

  • It could be one of a number of things. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder to start... Possibly other anxiety disorders. He needs to see a doctor.
