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
