Right now every morning I wake up and start to worry if today is the day I will get the call to rush to the hospital for my sister. I am like a mini army, I have a little bag packed so I can be on the road quickly. It takes at least 35 minutes to get there in regular traffic.
I have to stay strong for her so I cry at home and then I am iron woman........
We all have our triggers that set us off and I think most of us are a bit OCD.
I can understand your fear of leaving the house. I can get anxious sometimes just thinking of leaving my safe place. I too have imagined someone is following me or looking suspicious. In fact one time a lady did follow me in my car. Every turn I took she took and I was getting really spooked. I drove to the mall and parked out in the open and she pulled up next to me. By this time I was also angry and ready to get out and confront her. She looked over at me and then drove off.
I did report this to the police and they knew this woman, seems she was looking for her hubbies girlfriend that drove a car just like mine......geez.
I go on stranger alert very quickly.
I will buy 2-3 pair of shoes if I find a style that really works for me. When I was working I always had 2 new pair of nursing shoes in my closet. Why............because I knew they would quit making the style I liked and I felt secure having extras on hand for when I wore out a pair.
Hugs to all

Alright I am laughing out loud at Lyn's eau de parfum by Pinet Soleil. Giggle.
I do have one major thing that triggers my anxiety, going to the Pdoc. I know it is painless but I still go into anxiety and have to work very hard at "staying in the moment"
Well I made it home today all in one piece.
OK everyone, here is where you can share and just let it out. Tell us one thing that sets your anxiety level for the day.
What happens that would kick your anxiety into high gear during the day?
What would make you feel like this ?
Join in everyone.
Huggles to all
Try to find appliance that turn themselves off after soo many minutes of not using. My iorn does that. Right before I leave home I do a sweep to make sure the curling iron is off, no portable heaters are running. I do leave the radio on as it makes the dog secure.
Also I use surge protectors on my christmas lights and anything I am concerned.
I usualy exit the house through the garage and double check lock but should I forget I have a very territorial Doberman so I would advice no one enter if they are unknown. She is partial to the UPS driver................

Knives, flat-irons..I'm getting edgy already!!
I have the same thing big s.i.s. I am obsessive about dishes in the sink, or water on the bench. As soon as food is finished I have to wash up and dry and put away before I can relax. I just can't stand them "sitting" there. We also have to filter our water (using a special jug) and I go nuts if it's not always full to the brim. If my guy gets up to have a drink in the night I have to get up as well to top it up. You'd think he would learn by now but alas he just thinks it's cute.
moreAmor, congrats on dealing with the knife issues. Hypomania is a tricky thing to get through. You must be a tough cookie Meg
