I really feel for those of you with OCD as a diagnosed condition.
Mine is a by-product of other difficulties, but it sucks.
At the moment I’m so tired of having to retrace my steps to give the very centre of my door knobs a final push. And touching the edge of the lever handles. And touching the end of my cooker knobs. And corded light switches.
I tell myself it’s stupid. That I don’t need to do it. But there’s an absolute compulsion and every time I go back. Every. Time.
Right now I’m struggling to type this because I now have the compulsion to blink really hard to the point of squeezing my eyes shut. What’s that about?
