Dealing With Stress

How I’m Handling My OCD During the Holidays

My biggest OCD trigger is guest. I can’t stand to have guests in the house. I’m not an introvert. I love to be around people, but I don’t like them inside my house. It brings me no joy to think about the things I will have to do after they leave. I go on an entire cleaning spree and it’s not good.

So to avoid the stress of doing everything I normally do after guest I have decided to take some actions.

If may seem selfish, but there is no reason to let guests go all over my house. I refuse to have any of my stuff stolen or broken. I also refuse to clean huge messes unless they are downstairs in the kitchen. The upstairs will be off limits.

I don’t want to be stressed out about touching people and hugging people, so I’m giving everyone church hugs or no hugs. I don’t like the feeling of being dirty. I don’t want to wash my hands more than I want to. It’s dry this season and my hands can’t handle not having moisture.

I will surely take my anxiety medicine. I refuse to go without it. I need something to take the edge off while I’m dealing with the stress of the holidays. I will definitely continue my coping skills. I will not freak out. I will not cry. I will not get angry. I will be calm.

These things sound good written down, but I know that they need to be put into action. I love my family and I want to be joyful around them. I don’t want to be a clam inside my house, but enjoy them during a time of family.

I am a personal blogger! I love to write and I love cookies and cake. And cheesecake. I love talking about my experiences in life. I like to write fiction and invent different worlds in my head. I enjoy watching movies, but I'm not a horror fan. I like watching Disney movies and hope to one day create a Disney Princess.
