First, I am a germaphobe. It has gotten to the point where I will sanitize after I touch anything deemed "not okay" in my mind. If I'm in the kitchen and touch something "not okay" I will just wash my hands quickly...but there are times I'll wash quickly 10 times within minutes. It all just depends on what I touch. There are far more things that are "not okay" than "okay, even in my own house. It affects my daily life. I have tried to stop, and tell myself I don't need to sanitize but I can't get over it. Second, I think I might be depressed but am not sure. Who would I see about these things?
Lastly, I am considering starting birth control but I'm not sure if I want to. What would be the best options for me, birth control wise?
