    I don't know what my problem is...

    I don't know if this is simply a bad trait of mine, or if it's an indication of some mental issue but either way I want some opinions...
    ~~ so earlier today I was making soup for my younger siblings when my mother told me to go upstairs and grab something for her real quick, when I came back down she was putting the noodles into the pot herself... immediately I got upset because I was going to make it a certain way, she told me I could just finish it but because I didn't get to do it in the particular order I had wanted to I just felt agitated. I proceeded to go up to my room and cry out of frustration because it bothered me that it wasn't done right.
    Writing this now it obviously seems very childish yet I can't help but act like this when I can't do something correctly. This was hours ago but I still feel so anxious (if that's the right word) about it.
    Maybe I'm just a brat hah... anyone feel free to reply.

    How long has this been going on for you? Only based on what you shared, it sounds more like OCD - some people with OCD (Obsession Compulsive Disorder) HAVE to do things a certain way or it may set them off.. they could have certain rituals, or be very obsessive about germs, ec. There's a lot more to it than that. Look on line about OCD. There are ways of treating - cognitive therapy is often a good treatment for it. You may want to see a doctor.
