I've been having trouble dealing with OCD at work lately. This is an old fear, but I'm afraid I'm going to forget or miss something and that it's going to get someone hurt or killed. I know that with anything, there is a possibility but it's small; and nothing we produce is perfect; and the are quality controls, reviews, discussions, etc.
However, I'm avoiding certain tasks or certain opportunities since I'm afraid they'll trigger my OCD. What really hurts is that, just a few months ago, this wasn't bothering me at all. It was great to be working freely and to be tackling complicated issues. Now I'm worried about if I say something "wrong" in an email.
This is also leading me to fear that I'm going to lose my job since I didn't feel I'm "doing enough", even though (so far) everyone seems okay with what I do.
Has anyone else experienced this? If so is there anything that helped you? I am just saddened and frustrated because I feel like I go to work everyday with a pit in my stomach.
