My battle with OCD

Hey guys and thank you for reading my blog. I decided to give this whole blogging thing a go after reading some others from people sharing similar battles and I thought it would be good to air my grievances as it were. So sorry about that! Also, my apologies if the language isn’t the best. I’m going to try fitting this in when I can and it is not the easiest thing to do when you are tired after work ha ha (excuses I know!). I’m also pretty tired from the whole OCD/depression/anxiety thing to I suppose…

But anyway! 

In terms of my OCD, the major thing I struggle with is contamination. Contamination and trying to prevent it rules my life. That’s not to say that I’m not trying to fight against it but just that I don’t have a fondness for door handles (and other things). Actually it is kind of a living hell. All day every day, I’m on guard from potential contaminants wherever they may be. I regularly spray myself with antibacterial disinfectant, wash my hands way too many times a day to be healthy and struggle to touch pretty much anything including even my face or hair. As you can imagine, this, combined with my anxiety doesn’t leave much for a social life. I’ve tried the online dating scene but it’s never worked. I’m not a good looking guy; I’m chunky and I’ve got a hell of a lot of baggage. Meeting someone was never going to be easy. I am trying to get my life in order though although some days are better than others. For now, I’m just happy to be able to shower in half an hour. You have to take the positives where you can. 

Anyway, there is a lot more coming from me but I just wanted to kick things off. 

Have a nice day!
