David Beckham has OCD
Soccer (Football?) star David Beckham says that he has OCD. According to this article on the (UK) Daily Mail website,
He said the condition leads him to count clothes and place magazines in straight lines and symmetrical patterns. And he added that one of the reasons why he keeps having tattoos is that he is addicted to the pain of the needle.
Because he is one of the most admired sports stars in the world, this announcement should go a ways towards helping to reduce stigma and shame associated with OCD and with mental conditions in general. At least we can hope that would be the net effect.

If david beckham does do all that dont you think it would have been noticed?someone as famous as him stuff like that is NEVER a secret and if he does leave him alone and let him make his own mistakes. For all we know it could be a roumor to make him look bad.none of us know the real him so why do we gossip?there is no way to make the determination ourselves if he does or does not.

He does not need steroid needles because there is virtually no pain from a shot versus getting a tattoo. It is an entirely different kind of needle pain.
