Just Me And My OCD

Still very much awake as everyone else lay sleeping snuggled in bed wrapped ever so tightly in their warm and cozy blankets. Don’t mind me, I’ll just do my usual OCD routines. Check every door and window to make sure they’re locked and secure, wash my hands at least a hundred times, flick on the porch light every fifteen to twenty minutes to thwart off any would be burglars, pace the hallway and peek inside every room to make sure everyone is ok and sound asleep, open the refrigerator to look at what I’m not going to eat and then close it only to look in it again ten minutes later, attempt to fall asleep while tossing and turning as my mind refuses to shut up, and then do it all over again. Well, at least the little one is on holiday break from school so I don’t have to be a total zombie trying to get her ready and off to class. Hopefully, I can fall asleep later this morning at least for a few more hours than usual. That would be really nice (wishful thinking).

    Hi, What a strong fighter you are! Kudos to you. It’s not easy to live with OCD or anxiety or panic…it’s a lonely planet. Don’t ever give up and I can hear that you’re a caring and great parent..so with that said..I wish you a nice monday/Lotta

    • I’m touched. Thank you so much for your kindness and words of inspiration. It really isn’t easy and it does feel like I am fighting this fight alone. There are lots of days when I just want to throw my hands up and say, “That’s it!!”, but there is something that just won’t let me. I don’t know where this strength comes from, but I hope I never lose it. I wish you a great Monday as well.
