Hi there and Welcome
No you are not alone in this as far I see it anyways
Speaking for self I am looking after my Dad who has Alzheimers and trying to cope with being sick a teen daughter, moving and all the other sad n really " make no sense " things that happen in my life that I am constantly rummaging thru my papers I have written Kitts Number down at least 10 times cannot remember it and CANT find one paper with it on it either.........BUT I keep looking for it and I too am wondering if bills are paid if this is done ect.........
I will do the odd " spur of the moment thing or who cares I am doing it thing" just because .....
Not anything that would hurt self or others just "things"
I swear somedays I am more certifiable than others ......
Its okay lol
Go with it you cant hurt anyone by rummaging thru your drawers and I have overpaid on some bills lol ( which is great when a credit comes in ) ........
Sometimes I think with me it is the need I have to JUST do it and not worry about
it and be outta control as I have to always be in a kinda control and safety net with the severe OCD I have lived with for more yrs than I care to count ......and am working real hard at fighting and BEATING this OCD monster.......
As long as you are not hurting anyone or self I think its ok to beep your horn or just let yourself go if only for a few moments each day
We as a/p er's always are worrying about
one thing or another so I just say
"If it feels okay to you and ya wanna do it .......go for it .."
Just my opinion
