Welcome to the A/P forum were happy you joined us here.
Muddy jeans nope not to bad at least you fought it and made you dogs very happy on there walk I'm sure they enjoyed there time with you.
I have a big problem with anything sticky like, kids with candy, suckers, glue ect...can't stand to be sticky. But I have grandkids so YEP you got it there are times it just can't be helped so I try to make jokes about it to help me thru it and not pass it onto the grandkids. We say a lot of ewwww's and yuck's and laugh.
You did a great job with the muddy jeans it brings a smile to my face...keep up the good work.
sounds like you have some OCD, it goes with anxiety, are you taking any meds? an antidepressant such as prozac often helps for all the problems you mention
also helps to learn new ways of calming and relaxing yourself
Germs! Although I'm getting better and better now.......I used to wash everything on a boil wash...even delicates. I had to sit infront of the machine and watch it wash so I would believe the germs were gone and make sure the machine washed them properly.
Hair - ya know when you get your hair cut , well those bits that stick and make you itch........well I spent a night sleeping on a concrete floor with no clothes on cos I though EVERYTHING had hair on it.
I used to rinse plates , wash them , soak them for 24 hours in bleach solution , rinse them , then wash them then rinse them and finally dry them (on a boiled tea towel lol) I also had to bleach the bowl I was washing up in , the surface it was on , the floor I was standing on to do it. I couldn't use the sink because the people I was living with didn't clean it enough and it was stained.
Washing myself - I had so many different lotions and potions and so many things I had to do before I could get out of the shower , I took ages. I used to take hours to put on make-up and hours getting out of the house aswell.
I am now much better even though I have never had therapy - I notice when I'm doing something now......like when I couldn't get my place mats straight , and I got the tape measure out - I stopped myself and said - hey that's going too far , I piled them up and put them in the corner.....they look nice and neat so I don't have to touch them - I only lay them out for visitors now.
So yeah you're totally wierd -NOT
