Hey, I just want to share my little ocd tyraid I went on tonight with you guys.
I went for a walk with my dogs tonight, and when we got inside, my dachshund drops this frog on the carpet from his mouth!!!
Now to someone who doesn't have ocd, this may have seemed funny. It did to my sister, and I felt horrible. I went nuts. I had to wash the dogs, boil their collars, and I had to spray lysol on the carpet and scrub it with other cleaners.
After I washed the dogs, I had to sanitize the tub. Then by that time, I was totally contaminated too, from touching the dogs. So I had to shower, and clean my feet in a very careful way so as not to touch the now contaminated floor.
After I did all this, my sister comes home and finds out what happened and laughs! She laughs! How could she take this all so lightly??? The house is contaminated!! That is how I felt at the moment. How dare she laugh at something that was causing me so much anxiety, worry and fear?? I was terrified.
I became close to tears at that point and had to compose myself in another room.
I am feeling better now, but not 100%. Thanks all for listening. I know I am not the only one who gets this obsession and compulsion, but it feels that way when you're going through it, doesn't it?
