"I hate to say this but it sounds as if you are OCD.  Talk to a professional because it can get worse and other 'tics' can arise."

"Definitely:  talk to a doc.  You need not be like everyone else as you imagine them, but there's no need to live with distress, or something that interferes with a full life."

Growing into your quirks or I got weird.

I am a weird person and my surroundings just don't seem to accept that. I was always pretty much weird, my culture references were always a decade behind.

"Actually these days combat boots are getting pretty decent; Vibram has made some gear that, although I was originally issued for work, I now where out and about. Probably not the most fashionable choice, but they are multifunctional. "

"It really depends on what kind of boots you like to wear.  Remember that leather boots rarely feel fantastic right out of the box, they usually have to be worked in over the course of a week or two of hard wearing.  Then they form around…"

"I spend about 14 hours a day in a pair of Georgia Giants, but boots may not be your thing. If you wear shoes for hiking, Merrell makes work shoes with hard toes."
