  1. 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.

  2. 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.
  3. 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...
