This is My Brain on OCD

So, for nearly a year I've been freaking about colds and flu, due to a fear of causing illness in people around me who are undergoing chemo. Currently that's my boss. On Friday, at the very end of the day, she came into my office with a tissue in hand, blew her nose, and then set some paperwork on my desk, right on top of what I was currently working on.

Of course I freaked out. She might have a cold, I could get that cold, and then I could pass it on to my boss... hey, wait a minute!

OCD brain knows no logic. I still felt anxious all evening.

  1. Lol. Not to laugh at your situation, but I can totally sympathize. Even though it's not a threat, it's hard to kick that anxious feeling once the obsession has started.
