I still think it’s ridiculous to be proud of doing something I could do at 10 yrs old, but I am.
Monday we did our Christmas shopping for Katrina. I also wanted to do my usual desensitation at a used clothing store (the usual one, not a different one.) On our way there Bruce asked if I wanted to go to the dollar store first. I said no. and then said well, I HAVE a preference, but that doesn’t matter. I don’t give in to all my preferences, esp. He was ready to do it- without me even directly asking for it. We talked about that later. I said that confuses me when he is willing to do the ‘ocd thing’ even when I don’t ask/ insist because to me, that means that he sees there IS a reason to do it ocd’s way. Did the rest of our shopping etc. with no problems from ocd for going there first. It is sooo nice when my brain stays quiet!
