I'm absolutely disgusted and terrified of being around human, geese, or dog waste?
I have OCD, I was diagnosed with it, like 2 years ago. And something I struggle with is contamination OCD. I cannot stand being around washrooms, it triggers me badly. Everytime I'm walking by a washroom, I have to distract myself somehow. I've even avoided public parks where I would normally expect dog or geese waste.
My dad sometimes takes a **** and his **** leaves stains around the toilet. I've told my mom several times this, because my dad never listens to me, or he won't take me seriously. This has become such a huge trigger to me, and often frustrates me that my dad doesn't clean up after himself.
For those who think OCD is a character trait, or is all about being a neat and clean freak, OCD is NOT fun to go through, its a very controlling disorder. Its a nightmare, I've even had dreams of this exact fear, and it was very disturbing.
Anytime I get triggered by this thought of possibly touching human feces everytime I pass by a washroom, or step inside a washroom, these thoughts stick in my head. I CANNOT get them out, NO MATTER how HARD I try.
I don't know what to do anymore, I'm waiting for a local anxiety clinic to open up, but I just don't know what to do anymore. I will have to go through this struggle for the next two months :(

It’s OK. Some very talented and successful people have had pretty bad OCD stuff going on. Not that I like trump that much but let’s face that he’s been pretty successful hasn’t he? And he has some OCD germaphobe stuff going on definitely.Look at Howie Mandel. The billionaire Howard Hughes had OCD.These are just s few examples. You just take the good with the bad. Along with your gifts you also have to accept your challenges. One can’t exist without the other. Just make the best of your good stuff. Not everybody has to be the same in this world. If you go to a shrink they will just put you on psych drugs which will not really help. Just because that’s how they make a living. And the side effects could really ruin your brain. You’re obviously an intelligent human being and you don’t want to let them do that to you. Take it from somebody who that happened to. That’s why I don’t take those drugs anymore.

many people do not like public restrooms but do only because they are desperate. The unisex ones are the worst. Talk to your mother about your father leaving the toilet dirty
