I wasn't really sure what to call this thread, but I'm wondering if anyone else is obsessed with the layout of rooms and the location of doors, windows, hallways, etc. I have a really big problem with this, and I'm noticing it more lately because I've been to the hospital, doctor's offices, support groups and so on, a lot more than previously. For example, when in my doctor's office, I always have to choose the chair closest to the door. I get nervous if someone else is closer to the door than I am. I also have to be in a position where I can see the door and any windows simultaneously. I can't stand to have my back to any openings in the room such as windows, doors, or even a closet door. I note the location of all the objects in the room, the layout of the furniture, etc, and notice immediately if something has been moved since my last visit. Depending on what has been moved, I can be upset, angry, even cry over it. Another example, I can't stand the waiting room at the health region. There are several rows of chairs, and even if you sit in the very back row, there is a door behind you, to your back. On the one side there is a whole line of big windows, and the other side 2 elevators, and another door. Directly in front is reception, and people are walking in and out all the time. I literally can't stand waiting in that room, because I can't keep an eye on all the doors and windows at once, there is no safe space for me. I usually end up freaking out whenever I'm there. I have similar problems with people (other than family and friends). In an office setting, I get very uncomfortable if there's not a piece of furniture such as a table or a desk between me and a therapist or doctor. I can't stand 2 chairs across from each other with an open space, I need at least a coffee table and preferably something bigger in between myself and the other person. Anyways, just curious if this is something other people's experience. It's quite severe for me, I end up mapping out in my mind every place I visit practically. It's exhausting.
