Why?  Do you not believe Kid has OCD?

Ah I see.

But being someone who suffers from it myself I still think he has it ^^;.  Granted it could be from the whole madness of order thing but even after that is taken care of he still has a touch of it.  OCD isn't something that you can just get rid of it's been a part of him for his entire life so naturally he would still have it.  It might not be as sever but it is still there and will always still be there.

Granted it came from the madness of order but it's still OCD.

That's fine if you believe that, but for me I try to stick to facts or things close to it as possible. 

www.psychguides.com/guides/liv…
which says "Some people with OCD can be completely cured after treatment. Others may still have OCD, but they can enjoy significant relief from their symptoms."
 
beyondocd.org/expert-perspecti…
which says "OCD and SAD are both anxiety disorders that can render someone disabled and require treatment." I have a little bit of both and understand them pretty well.

Kid may have suffered anxiety in his life esp. since people were gossiping about him, or it came from his madness, but there is no definite evidence that supports that, I did however find good hints that sound like it isn't OCD, but people will still fight over the fact that Kid does or does not have OCD even with that info. I already discussed this with someone else and we both agreed and already know that his ocd'ness didn't completely go away because it's also evident in the end of the manga, BUT that saying he has OCD is not proof because his madness conflicts that idea. 

Please don't fight me over this, because my opinions and thoughts won't change like that and do not like fan wars. But if you have a calm and rational rebut over it then I am willing to listen.

Actually I have no wish to fight I'm just stating my own opinion on the matter.  I go off a lot on facts and personal experience so that's why I feel he has it though I do feel it calms down and doesn't control his life as much as it used to.  It might act up at times but not to the extent it used to I just feel it would be part of his personality.

Whether OCD can be cured or not all depends on the person and the severity of it.  Some people that suffer from it might also have autism or aspurgers which OCD is in fact a part of the spectrum.  If that's the case then I truly do not believe it will ever be cured.  But it can be felt with so its not so controlling.  Then other forms might come down to something that happened to the person that triggered it which most likely could be cured.  But either way I don't think OCD will every truly go away as stress is a factor to it.  Maybe that's only for me but whenever I am stressed my OCD gets pretty bad, but not to the severity of what it used to.  I don't feel the urge to shut and open the door 5 to 10 times but I will stare at things to make sure I did it.

sorry if I seem like a blathering mess I am really tired and hungry :XD:.  Most of this is based off of what I perceive, I go a lot off of fact and personal experience.

Yeah stress causes my anxiety and OCD tendencies to get worse too. That's pretty much another reason why I try to avoid fights as much as possible. My stress also has been giving me psoriasis and hasn't gone away for years, and when I stop using the cream after it's completely gone it just comes back and in more places than last time. >.> I also used to have severe panic attacks that felt like I was dying. Like I thought I forgot how to breath and started panicking, and if I was about to fall sleep I would panic because I thought I was dying. >.> It's mostly gone though and I hardly get them now. I have both health and social anxiety and take meds for it, but it doesn't help with my OCD thoughts. Anytime I try to suppress them they just pop back up. -.-'

Stress for me makes my heart race stupidly fast and it feels like I am dieing.  I try to avoid conflict as much as possible it just never does me any good.  Mine does too and I hate it I'm naturally a very anxious person so I worry about everything which never helps.
