Just looking quick bit of advice.
I am pet sitting for a friend. I do this quite often for other friends all their pets love me and I am good with them.
My issue comes with leaving the house. Did I leave anything out they could hurt themselves on? Did i lock all the doors right? Did i leave anything on that could catch fire? Did i remember to leave them more water?
All these things would mean it could easily take an hour or 2 of constant checking and waiting by the phone until owners home again.
So I've been diagnosed with ocd for over 18 years now. I have issues around contamination and checking and other crap. But I noticed another weird behaviour.
While in lockdown I've been gutting my house. I have a lot of clothes, like loads and loads so thought right it's time to throw lots out. I just threw away a huge pile of t shirts that are identical in that I have chewed the neck away in so many. Like over 20 shirts. I planned to give a bin bag or 2 full to charity shop but obviously none of them can do in!
Just having another wee rant. Susan (what I call my ocd) is kicking the shit out of me. I just want some f**king sleep.
I took today off work because I didnt get any sleep last night and anything I would have written today would have been crap. Had a sick day.
Sorry I dont have experience with this kind of thing.
Sometimes people dont get responses due to not many people being online or not knowing much about the subject.
Do you really believe you are a bad person for thinking something you never thought before?
