I don't attention seek and I am not someone who is "wacky" or "mad". That sort of thing makes my skin crawl. This is not something I do to be "random" or be "weird" or "crazy". I can't stand people who do things to get attention. Aaaaaanyway, the point is that is not me.
Basically I'm 30 and when I was 12 I started to want (and choose) so say "Kevin Keegan" all the time. I only said it in front of my close friends and didn't do it in front of people who I didn't know very well. I chose to do it and it became a habit. It is not like tourettes because I can control it. I've been doing it ever since! I wrote his name all over school books and whenever I doodled and I still do. The main time I say his name is when I'm on my own. At the same time I always wanted to say the number 84 and I love this number and have used it as my lucky number ever since. That number backwards is my unlucky number and I'm majorly superstitious about it. This is all for no reason what so ever.
About 7 years ago I started doodling Mc Jagger, not Mick, but Mc (like it's Scottish), then I started saying that name too and saying "Micky G" which doesn't even have anything to do with Mc Jagger.
I am not even that fussed by the Rolling Stones and I don't know anything about Kevin Keegan really. I don't like football and I don't know where the number 84 came from, but they are all big parts of my life for no reason. I know it sounds mental, but I can control it, it's just like I get some satisfaction from saying and writing these things down. I sing along to songs and replace the lyrics with Kevin Keegan and Micky G. I MAINLY do this on my own and even friends who have known me for years don't know this about and actually my family don't. I'm actually embarrassed about it in a way, although in my head it makes me laugh and I just do it to amuse myself or something.
This is not a joke and I'm not taking it too seriously or anything, My boyfriend is aware of it all and he just let's me get on with it haha.
But I'm really really just wondering if there is anyone at all that can relate to this, because I'm not sure that there is. I've been wondering if it's a form of OCD or if you can get such a thing as controlled tourettes (but I'm pretty sure you can't).
Anyway, please let me know anything you can that might help or if you get this thing with certain words or names, or know someone else that does.
The main reason I'm asking this now is because about a month ago I got a new one and I can't stop wanting to say Meow meow. Oh and me saying it can do my head in sometimes, especially if I've got a hangover, then it's just off the scale haha.
