Why is it that when night time hits and it is getting close to bed time my OCD ramps up, from locking the doors to brushing my teeth, to getting into my bed. It is like every night I go to bed with a headache due to my OCD. I wonder if it is because there is less things going on and my mind isn’t thinking about a million other things, so I have to do something. I just wish I could just do my bathroom routine, get into bed and be relaxed, but that usually is not the case. Maybe if I think about something important while I am doing these things, my rituals wont take over.
When does your OCD act up the most?
