He called it “OCD” but I prefer to think of it as “UGF”.
The doctor and I managed to get to the topic of children during one long and memorable appointment. He asked for my thoughts.
“Well, they aren’t my favorite…”
He could not understand how someone could dislike children. After all, children are cute and loveable. How could I say such a thing? My answer was simple and honest.
“Their hands are always sticky.”
He looked me straight in the eye.
“You have OCD.”
