I'm sitting here thinking about some of the stuff I do,it's crazy. I've read that most of us that have FM and CFS are type A personalities and that most of us are,well were, perfectionist. So just wondering if it's at all possible the OCD comes from that and the fact that being how we were could contribute to the OCD since we have no control over the FM and CFS. Does that make sense? I've come to the conclusion that over the yrs I've developed some OCD tendencies. I know this because growing up and in my 20's and 30's didn't do these things. Can't remember when and how it started but I hate it.It can be annoying. What do you think about this. Do you have any OCD and what do you do? I'm not able to keep my house as clean as I once did but I'm a heavy hand washer. I'm really bad at it when I'm at someone else's house. I hate opening doors in stores,cars,houses. I hate using someone else's phone or remote control. I don't like someone else handling anything in my house. I can't help it. When they leave I'll make myself sick cleaning all the remotes,phones,doorknobs,handles,cabinet doors,anything they've touched. It's horrible,I hate it. I don't dare tell them cause they just make fun of me. They already will say stuff about me washing my hands at their houses. I will not allow them to put anything on my kitchen cabinets or my table if I can help it. Am I a germaphobic or what. Thank goodness they don't come over that often. When I went to my sister's,when she had the baby,in TX,I was so glad to get home. I was driving myself crazy. I wouldn't put anything of mine down,while getting dressed,without laying paper towels down first then would throw them away. And it's not like they are dirty people, their not. Needless to say I can use alot of paper towels.LOL. This is just some of it. I wash my hands constantly,even at home. See this is one of the reasons I don't think I can live with someone anymore. They would kill me. What can I do. What do you do? It was kinda bad working at the nursing home. Course I would wear gloves when I was dealing with the residents. I don't think they noticed how much I washed my hands and how I wouldn't touch most things,I tried to hide it. I doubt it's related to FM,just seems to have gotten worse. Thanks for reading,Keke You're the only ones that know.
