Well, it's 8 pm, the night before garbage day. Neighbors' cans not out yet. Neither one of the two neighbors. I have no plans to do anything if they don't. I feel good about this right now but know that I won't next week if their garbage is blowing down the street again. I also know getting through this is really really important for me. So I will sit.
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.
