I know this is gross and very weird, but since I was in High School, when I use the restroom I have a fear the feces will get on my hand or i'll accidentally wipe it on myself while cleaning. I also have this same fear after my two year old uses the restroom. I fear something will get on him or I will accidentally touch the tissue. I know this is a strange thing to worry about. I sit in my room and worry that I've done that i've gotten in on myself when I know I didn't. I also have a fear of harming myself while showering. Is there anyone else with these problems? Sometimes I have suicidal thoughts resulting from these fears, and I've noticed the days I have to work is when these thoughts are the worst, which is strange. I need some kind of relief.
If you think about it, nothing is uncertain in the NOW. You know exactly where you are and what you are doing right this very moment, so by focusing on your direct experience in the present, uncertainty-driven anxiety can be reduced.Mindfulness helps relieve feelings of stress & anxiety.When I read this somewhere I wrote it down because it really makes sense. Hope this is helpful to others...
