    I hate the thought of hygiene ...

    So as you could see by the title I hate the thought of hygiene! So what I mean is when I touch a door knob I shiver and think who has touched people haven't washed their hands and touching things that I normally touch and when I think about it, it gets me of subject of a conversation and makes me Tap my leg and rolling my tongue across me teeth ect. When someone hands me something I don't want to touch it and when I was at school I remember we had to pass this item around and I would always weat my jersey when we did this so I could pull one cuffs so I wouldn't have to touch it.
    And when people sneeze into their hands or just staidly out into the air I want to scream at them at to go and wash their hands but I never have the guts to.
    Thank you if u could help I would appreciate it (sorry it's quite long).

    You are afraid of a LACK of hygiene. You have a phobia and will need treatment for this. Psychologist or psychiatrist.

    You may not have a phobia, you could have OCD. OCD is characterized by having either repititve or unwanted thoughts that you cant control.

    Although its smart to be conscientous about hygiene, you cant control those around you.

    This is something that you would want to talk to your doctor about and see if a referral to a therapist is warranted for. If you cant "think' yourself out of this, you may need psycho therapy or drugs to help you control your thoughts.
