    I’m so happy to hear you’re in recovery. I really hope I can say that one day. I don’t want this to rub off on my son as he’s already beginning to want to wash his hands alot. Even disinfecting the kitchen surfaces and then picking up his Dummy to give to him I’d have to wash my hands in between. It’s ruling my life.

    Other fears I struggle with is my little boy touching things such as bird poo, flowers and plants that could be poisonous, I wear gloves when fuelling my car as the thought of contaminating him with petrol fills me with dread.

    Really hope there’s hope for me.

    Thank you
