I have OCD as you all know. Sometimes it seems to be a lot worst than other times.
Yesterday was one of those days.
Just bad, bad, bad.
When I do things it has to be in even numbers and I tend to do them in sixes most of the time. Yesterday was way worst than normal.
I was running on little sleep, which is not altogether that strange for me. But things have been a bit stressful and the combination of no sleep and other issues just seemed to combine and really cause some issues.
I counted while I brushed my teeth (I do this anyway) I counted using soap to wash my hands, I counted while rinsing my hands and I counted while drying them, had to do it a certain number of times and had to do it a certain way.
I cut food in sixes.
I took out a grey plate for my sons lunch, I had to put it back because I HAD TO HAVE the blue plate for him or something was going to happen. Same thing happened for my plate, my fork, my glass, everything I did and touched had to be second guessed, and changed if my mind told me to.
I counted fingers, and letters, and words.
I went over lists and other lists over and over.
I could not make any decisions yesterday with out second guessing myself and having to do things another way.
Some of this I do anyway, yesterday was just brutal.
Today was much better. Yes I am still doing a lot of those things, but it is not bothering me as much as yesterday.
Hoping tomorrow is a good day……
