Well, I managed to do the "no extra handwashes" at work today. I was proud of that, as another coworker was complaining about her cold symptoms and I interact with her a lot. We'll see how long I can keep it going.
I'm Ann, a 43 year old woman who has struggled with OCD for the last 17 years. I've been in treatment with some success, but never really put a knock out punch on my compulsions. I started working toward that goal in 2009. Obviously this is a work in progress. This blog chronicles my journey, as well as discussing OCD more generally.
