#OCDweek – Risky Business
There is a risk, however small, that tomorrow I will walk under a bus. There is a risk that I may get Ebola (can you guess what my OCD might be especially keen on at the moment?), that I might cause an accident, that I might hurt someone unintentionally, that I might leave my cooker on and burn down the entire student residence… the list goes on. Every day we take a million tiny decisions and a million tiny risks.
Worse than all of that though is the risk that I choose not to take. There is also the risk that I don’t face up to my OCD and that it ends up consuming my life, my dreams and my future.
