      I’ve had OCD and Anxiety for many years but the past few years has gotten  really bad I’ve had numerous CBT sessions but I can’t stop the handwashing loops. I end up repeating the washing cycle 4,5,6 times and also I don’t trust my mind in telling myself I’ve washed them. I’ve resorted to put a dot of lather on my sink tile as visual evidence that I’ve done a full washing cycle. But once just never seems enough then the loop starts and the extras like washing my thumbs extra or my fingertips. Going to to the bathroom feels like an ordeal. Just wish I wasn’t like this its exhausting everyday.
