I live with my mum and dad. Our family always likes to keep things clean and tidy at all times.
I’m scared to tell my mum and dad about it
Especially me. I like to keep things tidy all the time. When I say at all times, I mean it!Everyday is exactly the same for me. I wake up and as soon as I touch something, I feel dirty, and I need to wash my hands.
If I’m near a bathroom I will wash my hands for at least 1 minute, with lots of soap and warm water. This helps kill germs and bacteria. I carry a hand sanitizer around with me just in case I can’t get to the bathroom.For the rest of the day, I feel on edge, nervous about people touching me or seeing dirty surfaces.
Things are getting really bad for me now. I have noticed that my skin on my hands is cracking and are extremely dry, causing them to bleed sometimes. This is due to my constant need to clean them. But I don’t know how to stop.
“What is this disorder the need to constantly washing hands” I keep reading about the symptom, it scares me at first but, when taking my time to understand is just like and illness, which can cope just like other disorder.I know that I have OCD… I wonder if do they know? they must know it right?
After the information I read about the symptoms, I just lay on my bed to relax, and the question keeps repeating in my head. Do my parents know about the symptoms?
