Hand Sanitizer Addiction!

Yes it is true. Ever since I took Molecular Biology to earn my Master's degree a few years back, I have been obsessed with washing my hands and using hand sanitizer. I even hold my breath when walking past someone after they sneeze. It is that serious! Call me a germ-o-phobe, but I am just that! LOL! Look, I do not want to get sick and I know one of the main ways to get sick is from not washing or sanitizing your hands constantly. Here are a few things that I have become obsessive in doing:

1. I have a bottle of hand sanitizer in both of my cars.
2. I bring in sanitizer when I am going to the movies and out to eat with someone.
3. I try not to go to a buffet style meal because I do not know who has washed their hands, as many people grab the serving utensil at the buffet bar!
4. I wash my hands before and after using the bathroom and yes even the public bathroom.
5. I watch when someone is serving food to notice if their hands are touching it or if the food is near their mouth. I do not want any one's breath on my food but mine.
6. I constantly clean my phone and phone that I use in public, so that I will not encounter germs entering my ear or on my face.
7. Finally!!! Don't take that damn Molecular Biology course! It will scare the hell out of you!!

I know that there are some things that you can not help in life, and I just want to try to do the best I can to control what I can control for my sake, and maybe someone else. So yes I will continue to be that germ-o-phobe... and overly obsessive hand sanitizer (and clean) freak!

I Love You But, God Loves You More!

  1. You are probably making yourself more susceptible to getting sick if you are not getting enough exposure to germs and building up immunity.

  2. Other people are disgusting -- you're doing right by keeping their disease off you.
