My other fight - OCD
Thursday, May 09, 2013
I am pretty stationary with my OCD. I have it. I know it's there. But I usually don't mess with it. But someone recently asked me what I would think if I started seeing my OCD in my boys. Oh... Maybe I should deal with it after all.
My first attempt was going past the security guards at work without turning to look at the clock. It drives me crazy if I don't look at it. The entire walk up to the building I was ready, and actually getting visibly nervous at the thought of not looking. Unfortunately as I approached my mind wandered and I found myself staring straight at the clock. DOH! I felt just as awful that I looked as I was feeling about not looking.
Which is silly, right? My OCD isn't about knowing the time, it's about looking at a specific object. Silly. Very silly.
I have another object that I look at when I drive home- a brown sign about halfway to my house. I'll try my best to remember not to look this time! Let's see if I can actually do it. (I have to turn my head wide to the right to see it, so it won't be visible during normal driving)
Anyone else have any silly OCD things?
