OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE?

A couple of days ago a friend of mine checked my blog and when she called me later she told that I was definitely suffering of OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE disorder ... :O ... not the first time she was telling me that ... finally I check the definition and I found out that (http://www.mentalhealth.com/) that there are two definitions ... EUROPEAN and AMERICAN ... :O ... for sure I am not according to the EUROPEAN definition, here the AMERICAN one which is challenging me a little bit more ...
A pervasive pattern of preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism, and mental and interpersonal control, at the expense of flexibility, openness, and efficiency, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by four (or more) of the following:
1. Is preoccupied with details, rules, lists, order, organization, or schedules to the extent that the major point of the activity is lost shows perfectionism that interferes with task completion (e.g., is unable to complete a project because his or her own overly strict standards are not met)
2. Is excessively devoted to work and productivity to the exclusion of leisure activities and friendships (not accounted for by obvious economic necessity)
3. Is overconscientious, scrupulous, and inflexible about matters of morality, ethics, or values (not accounted for by cultural or religious identification)
4. Is unable to discard worn-out or worthless objects even when they have no sentimental value.
5. Is reluctant to delegate tasks or to work with others unless they submit to exactly his or her way of doing things
6. Adopts a miserly spending style toward both self and others; money is viewed as something to be hoarded for future catastrophes shows rigidity and stubbornness

This is my auto diagnosis:
1. 5%
2. 5%
3. 90%
4. 5%
5. 50%
6. 50% (I mean I prefer to make gifts, than to spend money for myself)
... and now I am afraid of my friends comments ... :D
