Here's What I Did This Weekend

I stayed home. And it was an exposure. I visit my various family members every couple of weeks. But I will very often schedule it last minute, so I can assure myself that I'm not sick and neither are they. There was no reason to visit anyone this weekend, but we were all healthy and I REALLY REALLY wanted to call them and schedule and "get it over with." But I didn't. I called and scheduled for next weekend instead.

The challenge for this week will therefore be to continue on with life, rather than spending the week trying to avoid germs.


  1. Good for you. I resisted some pretty strong urges to reassure myself this weekend, too. Let's look forward to a good week ahead, doing what we know is right for our OCD.

  2. I am continually impressed with all of the exposures you come up with for yourself....
