Now, it is hard to explain for me. But I need to know what is this. Because I have no idea what this is, I might over-explain. I tried Google with lots of different phrases, and it seems as if this needs some human help.

tl;dr: This is related to getting annoyed when lots of stuff is happening. Because of my specific life, this mostly happens when I'm working on my computer.

So basically I get annoyed when lots of different programs are open, or I'm doing lots of different things all with lots of specific details. Instead of tackling a problem step-by-step, sometimes you need to do a lot at once, mostly due to time constraints. For example, as a content writer, sometimes I open five Microsoft Word windows and as I type different things about the same topic, I choose which file to put that piece of content in.

  • Suppose I create different headings in all of those, and I also have to do some formatting. This becomes "too much" too quickly and I'm on the verge of crushing my teeth into each other.
  • Perhaps I can't do multitasking, but there's more to it. I can't stand the sight of a computer screen with tons of icons. On my desktop, there are just 5 and that too set in small size. The rest of the screen is empty, mostly pure black. This makes me relaxed.
  • I can't handle it (mentally) when lots of tabs are open. I must close what I don't need to feel okay and continue. If, due to some reason, I open a lot of tabs, the "chaos" makes me extremely annoyed, unhappy, agitated, and aggressive.
  • Suppose I have two workspaces open -- one where I am doing some downloading, some disk cleanup, and an antivirus scan -- and on the other one, I am doing some college work that requires at least two software and four to five folders open. This exact situation is what I can't take. Once I clear up the college work and close that workspace, I feel much relieved. This relief is uncommon, nobody should feel so much of it for such a small thing.

In all the mentioned stuff, I can "do" it easily, but I start clenching my teeth while doing such jobs. I start shaking my head every once a while, as if I'm "refreshing" myself to handle the chaos. I think I have a disorder, and not knowing what it is just makes me even more annoyed. I am sure somebody here knows what exactly I have. Thanks.

You can't make a diagnosis based on a few behaviours, let alone on a forum.

If you feel these experiences are interfering with your daily life, then seek professional help - perhaps your doctor or mental health professional (e.g., clinical psychologist, psychiatrist, or psychotherapist).

    Welcome to Health! Be sure to take our tour. You can't make a diagnosis based on a few behaviours, let alone on a forum. This plus the obligatory visit your doctor are the only valid responses as was decided on Medical Sciences Meta. Your answer should be no more than that. Actually, you are not supposed to answer a question requesting diagnosis at all, but provide a comment instead.

    @CareyGregory Same here. The answer actually turned from -2 to +2, which is always great to see. Thanks a lot for doing the edit, PyjamaNinja, it really improved the answer.
