Butt Phobia! Chairs etc.

If someone has their hand(s) behind their back (near their butt) and then touches anything that I touch I freak out. If I see someone I am with put their purse or shopping bag or keys down on a chair where someone else has been sitting, I freak out! Does anyone have this problem? Please help!

Re: Butt Phobia! Chairs etc.

This is one of my OCD related problems. I consider myself very healthy at this point. I have not had a bad cycle in over two years, but at one point it was uncontrollable...cost me my job and lots of other things.

It still pops in my head from time to time and I just go through steps in my head. Ask questions like: Is this going to hurt me? Is there really anything there? What is the worst that could happen?

Then I give myself facts such as: Chairs have been around for thousands of years and no one is getting hurt, and I won't hurt myself or anyone else by picking something off of a chair.

It used to be impossible to think of alternatives or go through steps. Now I can convince myself within a matter of seconds. Its ok to think that public seating and butts are gross, though only to a certain point.
