Doing some work for my old boss in the city this week. That place broke me last time. I know of two chemical spills that have happened there. I imagine the chemical residue has broken down over the last 3 years, or been leached away by rain or the wind, but the idea that it could still be there floating around being toxic or carcinogenic poor who knows what...
Haven't started a thread in a long while, but here goes. Had a bit of an ill-advised sexual encounter on Friday and I'm.... well I'm not going full OCD on this but I'm getting fairly anxious and having to fight off some compulsions coz I know what a slippery slope it is. Like this morning I washed the clothes I had on that night, and had to be ready strong with myself not to throw in the clothes in wearing now as well. You know how it goes.
This is not my usual sort of contamination fear. Normally I'm all about chemicals. Eh. This too shall pass.
Hello, I haven't been on this forum in a while, but I have a story I wanted to share with people who would get it.I am starting a new job next week, so I popped in to the new workplace to pick up some paperwork I have to fill out. When I got there the guy I had to see was spraying weeds, coz a new job is not daunting enough, why not throw in my greatest fear (chemicals)? I had to shake his hand, there wasn't really any way around it that I could see, and no valid way to quickly excuse myself to go wash my hands so I just had to live with it.
"The thing there though is that it is adviseable to only ask once and no more, otherwise it is reassurance seeking, and self-defeating. Just once is seeking information."
Very important distinction, and one we'd all do well to keep in mind. Thanks mate.
