Other Ramblings...

Monday, 5 November 2012


I have recently purchased a yellow wristband, in support of Claire Watkinson and her short film Living With Me and My OCD.

It is a nice wristband, and it is bright yellow.  Geoff is rather enjoying being flaunted for all and sundry to see so flamboyantly.  Although he gets quite shy when he thinks people might be looking and makes me put his clothing away.

At first, I wore it simply because I could, but then I thought that I might as well take the opportunity to use it to track my compulsions - or Geoff's behaviour! - and so, I've begun to move it from one wrist to the other every time I perform a ritual.

I'm also really keen to start counting how many times I move it between wrists, because I've got very little idea of how many compulsions I perform every day.

I'm aware that it might turn into a compulsion itself, but I'm just so intrigued that it's a risk I'm willing to take.

I'll keep you posted..!


  1. Hmm . . . interesting idea. Looking forward to hearing more - but I'm glad you recognize that it might become a ritual.

  2. I'm not letting myself wear it every day, and I think I'm going to stop myself wearing it at all the minute I start getting anxious about not having changed wrists, or whatever. What a pain!

  3. Kate, thank you for sharing. Blessings.
