While opening the lid on my macbook pro retina 13 (it was on the table), I was not looking and the bottom part got raised together with the screen and fell on the table. Sound was audible enough, I can estimate 1cm fall? could be more.

There is no visible damage, should I worry about internals? Its been only weeks since I had this and only thing I do is worry :(

what's the name for that disorder? OCD, is partially culprit, but there is something more specific like "shiny object syndrome"

Haha. Don't worry, there machines are built to handle a little bit more than that. However try not to let it to happen again as each drop might break the solder joints slowly which after many drops will lead to complete fracture and hence dead logic board.

As someone that suffers from deep rooted obsessive behavior, senseless compulsions that cannot be helped, has their ability to function hindered in every way due to this anxiety driven mental disorder, requiring medication and other mental practices/strategies to only have a slim chance of overcoming it - it is cringe worthy to view this being said quite regularly.

Regarding your issue, it is great that you show concern for the condition of your laptop but I feel that you're being a bit extreme here. In any case, where I would argue it would be quite unlikely, if something is damaged internally you will notice during normal operation. I wouldn't worry about it.

I hope this helps.
