Contamination OCD

Not to be confused with mental contamination, physical contamination focuses on germs and feeling unhygienic.

It can make me paranoid about becoming ill or spreading illness to a loved one.

I know this is OCD because it only focuses on certain things. I can happily stand in a crowd at a festival having all sorts thrown over me, and just laugh it off.

However I have to clean an already clean fork before I use it.

Physical contamination has also led to mental contamination, I will talk about this in a post below.
