… Is being uncertain if you did something back at home, and obsessing and panicking over whether you did do it.

Today, for instance, I couldn’t remember if I closed the door to my house behind me. Saanich is a pretty crime-free neighbourhood, but I was still obsessive and paranoid to the point of breaking out in a cold sweat.

When I got home, the door was closed, of course.

It’s not just doors. I’ll do this with the toilet, with the oven, with just about any appliance you can think of. On the flip side, I have very autistic days when I will turn these things on, leave them open, or use them and then just walk away and forget about them.

Executive functioning: I need to improve it.
