I Have a Cold

I've even taken two days off work! Yesterday I felt a little guilty, as a I wasn't that sick, but I'm sure I was full on contagious. Today, on the other hand, I feel rotten.

When I get a cold and nothing terrible happens, I keep thinking/hoping that my brain will finally learn that it's not a big deal. Unfortunately, so far what happens is this: ooh, I missed work. If I get another cold next month, I'll get a reputation as a slacker.

Or, well, I didn't pass *this* cold on to anyone, so next time I'm sure to.

In any case, I've been making myself go out and touch things in the world, and I will continue to do so.


  1. Awww....Hope you feel better soon, Ann. : (

  2. "I keep thinking/hoping that my brain will finally learn it's not a big deal." I sooooo understand that. I'm glad that I"m not the only one. I always beat myself up for getting anxious or still having a strong desire to do my compulsions - but I suppose that is part of accepting the reality of OCD - it's a lifelong chronic disorder.

  3. Good for you (not the cold part, but the continuing to go out into the world and touch things).I hope you feel better soon.
