“Was that ok back there?”
I have no idea how many times my wife heard that question each week.
“That’ll be alright, won’t it?”
Yes dear, of course it will.
“Can you just look at this for me?”
Oh, i suppose so.
“I didn’t do anything wrong did i?”
How should i know?
“Can i just go back and look at something?”
If you must!
“How do you think that got there?”
How the hell should i know!
“I’ve been worrying about something all afternoon”
I KNOW YOU HAVE SO SHUT UP!
“I can’t ask you for reassurance can i?”
By asking me that question you know you just have.
“I’m not going to ask about that thing back there”
YOU JUST DID!
“If i even look like i’m seeking your reassurance about anything please tell me not to as it fuels and feeds my OCD and makes it stronger.”
With Pleasure, i love you.
Fight OCD. Fight the urge. It’s just a thought.
