  1. I really wanted a white iPad as I thought they looked the best for a long time. Then just recently my friend said the black frame Is less distracting after he read an article on it. I saw where he was coming from when I thought back to my days studying photography so for my first iPad I went with the black frame and haven't looked back. On scratches on screens maybe tell yourself you can get a new one next year or the year after creating a delay long enough for your anxiety to diminish. Sorry just my 2 cents worth...
  2. Finally dragged kicking and screaming into the modern World and bought an iPad.

  3. I like coffee but if I over do it I find the theanine in a cup of tea takes away the wired feeling from coffee.
  4. In Asia you generally don't use toilet paper and use a bucket of water or a hose (my favourite way) in a wet-room. By far the most hygienic way IMHO.Then you just wash your hands once.
  5. Don't flush wipes they will block your toilet!
  6. Sometimes i use fragrance free baby wipes after going for a number two. Not the wipes that say they are fragrance free though still have a fragrance but the "mild as water" ones from a well known supermarket at 67p per pack.
  7. Trying to sit with anxiety and delaying some compulsions until tomorrow.

      Good stuff, on the right track :thumbup:


  8. This. Mindfulness and chamomile or green tea.
  9. Gonna miss Question Time tonight - going to bed. It's a wrap.

  10. I am not going to give in to my contamination OCD tonight.  I refuse to wash my hair after walking past some builders cutting tiles creating dust. I wasn't close to them. The anxiety it created is irrational.

  11. But in in all seriousness and to answer your question: yes i have felt like that. And being on an SSRI for 5 or so years really helped.
  12. My Dad has always said to me not to worry about what other people think. And i don't anymore. I have a degree. I got a Desmond. A 2:2. (referring to Desmond Tutu) Sorry, bit facetious...
