When did I first notice I had OCD type issues?

I was always a worrier as a child. As I grew up and passed from adolescence and into adulthood the worries were worse than ever before. It seems to me that I just adapted to living with worries.

When i worked as a cook I would be too focused on cleaning up, a little scared that any left over food or associated dirt would cause illness.

I was diagnosed in my early to mid twenties and since then I have develpoed an understanding that has seen me move forwards,
