So, everyday when I touch things like handrails, handles, keyboard's ect I feel like I wanna wash my hands straight after and feel like I can't touch my own personal belongings as I don't wanna get the bacteria/germs onto them. Surely when you touch something that has germs on it with your hands, you then carry/spread the germs that are on my hands onto other things?

I don't mind getting dirty, greasy hands but as long as I can wash my hands after I'm okay. So do I have OCD, symptoms of OCD or just good hygiene?

I’m kinda like this so I always carry hand sanitiser with me 😂. I’m not crazy about it so I’d just say it’s good hygiene tbh. But I also remember things like our own phone etc are full of germs so it is inevitable

Yeah I carry hand sanitiser with me too 😆 Yeah I'm aware of that, which is why I clean my phone once a week 🙂

Depends on severity and how it impacts your life. I have had it for a long time and is very deliberating if not treated.

Seems like it’s just good hygiene. I mean, I travel in the train a lot aswell and ngl I feel disgusted sometimes just by having to hold the rail 😂

Whenever I go on the train, I don't hold the rail, instead I fall the floor when the train moves 🤣 nah, I just corner myself into the carriages

It’s even worse when there’s people constantly sneezing and coughing around you 😬 especially in the morning coz trains are so crowded
