A Mediocre Day

As often happens, the closer someone near me gets to a trip or a big medical event, the more anxiety I feel over the possibility of making them sick. My dad's heading out of town later this week, and I'll be seeing him tomorrow. It's so easy to tell myself, well, what's the harm in being just a little more careful than usual until after Tuesday. Of course, the harm is that it lets the OCD get just that little bit stronger. And then I get to worrying about even more things. Ugh.


  1. The "what's the harm" thought is very stealthy! I deal with that one frequently--and I agree with you that the harm is feeding the ocd. I hope you have a good visit with your Dad!

  2. Yep, because as soon as Tuesday passed, then I moved on to "But my friend Tom's coming to town this weekend, and I sure wouldn't want to get HIM sick." Sigh.
