  • Contamination OCD

Contamination ocd so bad I can barely leave my bed let alone my house. The floor in my whole house feels contaminated and I have to clean my feet with hand sanitizer every time I get into bed, even though I’m walking around in socks and slippers, so I really don’t have the will to get up and get myself food. I feel awful and hopeless.

Yea I’ve lived in a few places over the past few years where the floor felt like this it sucks. How do you deal with getting your feet in bed? Do you clean them before going to bed? Do you treat the end of your bed like it’s dirty? I do both honestly I’ve been cleaning my feet with hand sanitizer before bed every night which is probably really bad for my skin lol..

@Anonymous I treat the end of my bed like it's dirty. Try not to let my baby touch it.

@compulsion5000 That’s the worst. Especially when you’re trying to go to bed at night and you feel so restricted and you can’t touch your blankets too low down :(

@Anonymous I don't have it that bad at the moment. I can touch it with my butt (sitting on it) or my feet but not my hands.

@compulsion5000 yep, foot of bed is dirty. stopped being able to even use blankets a couple months ago because sometimes they slip off and touch the floor

@teeth Yes the same thing happens to me I’m so worried about them touching the floor. If only a little bit touches I’m usually okay to just spray that bit with disinfectant or sometimes throw them in the wash. That’s awful though I’m kind of scared of getting to that point. What do you do instead to stay warm??

@teeth Been doing something that really helps with the blankets, I tucked the foot end and one side of my comforter under the mattress and it’s been working really well. I have one side untucked so I can get in but the corners and the other sides are tucked so it can’t move any farther or droop at all.. it’s working really well for me and I wanted to come back and let you know if you haven’t tried it yet.
