I have obsessive compulsive disorder. Thankfully it isn’t a condition that debilitates my daily life. In fact, I can go as far as to say that it goes hand in hand with the work that I do. I like things to be neat, ordered, symmetrical and for the most part, germ free. The kind of habit that anyone who works in a laboratory should have to begin with. There is nothing better than a freshly disinfected lab bench, or kitchen top with the same stuff you use to sterilise your lab with.
That doesn’t stop be from filling my room with bugs though. If anything, I tend to follow the saying of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer. Although, to tell you the truth, it gives a whole new meaning to sleeping with Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea. I’ve got to stop telling people I do that.
