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).
