OCD really dislikes uncertainty. But the truth is, much of what we go through in life is uncertain — and this virus is no exception. You could take every conceivable precaution, and you still may end up getting ill to no fault of your own.
I practice accepting this fact every single day.
I’ve learned that radically accepting uncertainty, as uncomfortable as that may be, is my best defense against obsessing. In the case of COVID-19, I know that there’s only so much I can do to keep myself healthy.
One of the best ways to fortify our health is to manage our stress. And when I’m sitting with the discomfort of uncertainty? I remind myself that each time I challenge my OCD, I’m giving myself the best possible chance at staying healthy, focused, and prepared.
And when you think about it, doing that work will benefit me in the long term in ways a hazmat suit never will. Just saying.
