Dirtyphobia

This may sound like a joke, but it is totally not lol. I have this weird thing where i HAVE to take a shower every night. If i dont, i feel like little things are crawling on my skin and my stomach gets in knots and its like worms are inside of me.

I also have this feeling of dread. it affects my life too, because if i have already taken a shower i wont go out with my friends or touch anything outside my room unless i know i will take another shower.

I cant imagine the idea of getting in my fresh, clean sheets on my bed crawling with dirt, bacteria, and disease, and who knows what!

Its almost like a strange obsession. If i cannot take a shower, like if i get home late and my mom says i cant, i wash my hands, face, and feet in my sink. sometimes i wipe down my whole body with a disinfecting wipe.
