After every human encounter in the pandemic, I used to call my best friend to ask, “Hey! umm, should I change clothes? What if I get COVID or what if I spread COVID? Should I change clothes and take a shower?

All the people surrounding me thought that this habit of mine is eww

But I can’t blame them, because it can be understood only by a few

When not changing clothes is an anxiety attack’s cue

When your brain says that if you don’t, your payment of a death body is due

Such are death threats for people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, but only if they knew

They could have said ‘let me help’ instead of eww.
