That salivating could be so captivating?
I put a lot of concentration,
Into stopping muscular-tensing,
But it’s often said,
That OCD’s very creative;
And over-salivation requires less concentration,
—For it happens automatically!
I can’t even salivate on-demand,
But such is OCD’s power—
You need only think the word,
—When you don’t want to,
Come on, man,
I’m trying to have conversations here,
I need to show that I’m paying attention,
At Green Health,
But instead I’m trying to contain my salivating,
Constantly trying to clear my mouth,
So to speak!
—I’d rather be gardening,
You goddamned freak 🤣.

I always think about the things I would rather be doing if I wasn’t sitting inside and worrying. I’m always shouting at myself in my head too, calling myself a goddamned freak!

Thank you! People who relate to this kind of thing are few and far between! Yes, I certainly feel the pain of what I’m missing out on, too. Have you experienced Somatic OCD in particular? If you don’t mind me asking.
