This doesn't have anything to do with OCD, but does, in a way. Friday, while driving into a parking spot, i put my foot on the gas instead of the brake, noticed my mistake, put my foot on the brake AND pushed down hard, hoping to make the car stop before it hit the concrete barrier. It didn't work and now my foot is busted. So much that they couldn't operate because there wasn't anything to pin the stuff to. So here i sit, on my couch with my leg in a boot, raised up. Not a good thing for being able to wash my hands often!
I had to let bruce put the garbage out yesterday and will have to let someone do the laundry without me being able to supervise them to make sure it's all done 'correctly' AKA ocd"s way. Sure puts ocd into it's spot! I have a walker to get around with. I never knew how hard a walker is on the palm of your hands. They hurt while i'm walking as badly as my foot does. Ocd got worse in the hospital. I didn't like watching the cleaning lady do her stuff, or people coming in and closing the washroom door i'd specifically left open so i wouldn't have to touch the handle.
I went to my doctor;s on Fri. before the accident, and my ocd meds are slowly increasing. Hopefully all the ocd thots i had at the hospital will mysteriously disappear over the next few weeks as my meds go up. Haven't got hold of the mental health clinic to see about seeing a therapist. Was kinda out of touch fri. afternoon and all weekend.
I'm doing fine; mostly it doesn't hurt too much. I'm home from the hospital. I don't have to shovel snow, do dishes etc. so this does have a few pluses to it. I also finished my christmas shopping. I just have to wrap it all up. Trouble is, its upstairs and i can't get there.
Before you feel all sorry for me, i have never had a broken leg or arm before so this is all interesting and new. I'm not in too much pain and haven't reached the boredom stage yet so my holidays aren t ruined. This is all a fun experience. Not one i plan on rehaving, so i am going to milk it for all it's worth!
