This week I'm stopping at my sister's to feed the cat while they're out of town. Some serious challenges there. I haven't actually done it yet, and I worked myself up into a pretty decent OCD lather earlier in the week. It's one thing to leave my own doors open and ruin the world, but someone else's house? Yikes! But I know I can do it. Besides, she usually has some good snacks in the cupboards. :)
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.
