Having OCD means always falling on the wrong side of Occam's Razor. You can know that your fear is irrational, improbable and implausible, but the fact that it's not impossible means that you can't completely dismiss it. In fact, the really unlikely scenarios act as a kind of ladder for the less implausible but still unlikely scenarios.

But it's all about viligance and control. You know that little voice that tells you to trust your fears? With OCD it has a megaphone, and it is indiscriminate in what fears to trust. I've heard about how according to books like the Gift Of Fear and how you're supposed to "trust your instincts," but my instincts can't be trusted.

The funny thing is that the only times that OCD has never bothered me is when I have a certain amount of naked sexytime with another human being, and that isn't happening anytime soon.

So how is your afternoon?
