Today I sat in a meeting right next to someone who had a cold. I didn't wash my hands after. This is a really big deal for me. In fact today I washed my hands at work exactly once. I REALLY want to be able to keep this up. This cold/flu thing is sort of the last frontier, and it's been a heck of a challenge.
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.
