Alarm Clocks and my OCD Issues

I have a little bit of an OCD issue. Angry Husband knows this and it totally drives him crazy.

Since January, I have been working the day shift (Fri-Mon)from 6am to 4:30pm. Working this early, means I have to get up early. I'm not a morning person by nature. And I thought, I was an evening person. I think I've become a mid-day person, as in functioning from about 10am-10pm.

So my OCD has taken over with waking up. I do not trust my trusty alarm clock, so I start using my cellphone as an alarm also.

Well I freak in the middle of the night thinking that I am not going to wake up in time. I literally wake up every hour and check the time on my cellphone.

Angry Husband advised me this morning, to stop doing this. Because the little light on my cellphone display is very bright in our dark bedroom.

I can't help it, I have issues.


  1. This cracks me up! I have TWO alarms on my clock and then I set my husband's battery operated one -just in case of that hidden power outage. Do not fear, you are not alone in the issue of OCD!!!

  2. I am so OCD that I wake up exactly 3 minutes before my alarm goes off. Mr. Sasha loves it. It can't go off- I have to turn it off before it makes noise.... and that's one of the many reasons why I am on Lexapro....


Thank You for taking the time to comment on my blog. I really appreciate it. At least I know that someone in my life actually agrees with me.
