    Challenging the OCD with cuteness.

    So my main theme of OCD remains to be contamination, and hand washing. For years Iíve wanted to keep a reptile, but Iíve not been able to through the fear that they may have salmonella that I could pick up. Iíve decided however that this isnít the way to live and Iíve been challenging myself everyday with the question of Ďdoes this action/compulsion/avoidance negatively impact my lifeí if the answer is yes then I have been pushing myself to make sure this doesnít happen.

    In honour of this, everyone meet Apollo!

    I have been holding him, feeding him, and changing his water for over a week now! Which a year ago I 100% would not of been able to do.

    He really is quite the character! He comes to beg/remind us its food time any time he notices us move.

    Oh he's adorable!! Well done you! That's tremendous progress and a huge step in the right direction re managing your OCD issues!

    Does he have a complicated daily regime or is it quite straightforward once you are used to his requirements re diet/housing etc?

    He's lovely! Is he waving or striking a pose?

    I think it's great you are challenging yourself like this. Pet ownership can be hard with anxiety but they are so worth it.
