Hey, "nice" short experience. And nice in way that... I have weird OCD as well (not washing but other stuff) and this strikes kinda close to home, so good job, the feeling is definitely there. Fingers crossed for you!
thanks, friend! i've definitely been getting better lately; my partner is very understanding, even if she doesn't know exactly what i'm going through. having a strong support network is something i'm endlessly grateful for, since i didn't always have it. i hope you have good people surrounding you, because you can get better.
