|Discussing My Strange Reason for Sleeping Difficulties|
Everyone can have a personal, rather weird reason for Insomnia Like SymptomsFor some weird reason, I need my neckline to be free from any type of overlap. This holds true even during the winters when most people wear layers of clothing and often, this includes something with a bit of coverage around the neck. This habit became a serious part of my everyday sleeping regimen, and now I just cannot let go of it. These days the tolerance for with-collar outfits has increased by some margin, but not too much. I understand this is a rather strange reason for insomnia type of symptoms.

Updated on January 30, 2018: Recapturing Feelings During Floating OCD Days
When I actually had OCD, I had developed a strange sleeping ritual. This included checking on all the lights, checking on my father, and ensuring that the path from mom's bed to the bathroom was free from possible threats like innocent slippers, meandering socks or casually tossed around towels. The reason? When my maternal uncle, Mama, passed away, I developed this weird feeling that if I did not check upon my father, seeing whether he was breathing, I would lose him too. My mother had developed a serious mobility issue due to her shoulder injury that was caused by a slippery floor. This made me think that removing all potential land mines that could make her fall again had to be removed with surgical precision. All these activities meant some unrest as the time to go to bed drew nearer. Often, if the sleeping ritual did not proceed as planned, my sleep would be disturbed too. Now, these OCD days surface for a maximum of 2-3 instances across 4 months or so which is almost non-existent volumes...but then, I shouldn't be patting my back too much!
