A couple of days ago, I had gone shopping for sweets for an oncoming festival. I was walking down the road, and as usual, was checking whether my cellphone and wallet were with me and had not been stolen, due to slight paranoia and mainly compulsions. I told myself that I won't do it anymore, and I didn't. I walked into the jam packed shop to do my purchasing, and came out with the stuff. My pocket was feeling phone had been stolen!

Oh my. I'm so sorry to hear your cell phone! I hope that the sweets you bought were at least somewhat worth it. Greetings, Puzli! I really enjoy your excellent blog. Thanks for sharing your experiences openly. Congratulations on clearing all your exams.

Dear Puzli,
You showed courage in ignoring what you perceived to be your tendency towards compulsion. I think all people who have that tendency want it to vanish and try very hard to ignore it. I think you did the right thing, but this time you were simply an unlucky victim, like so many people. The loss of your phone is not to be taken lightly, but in my opinion, it was worth the effort you put into curbing those compulsions that can overwhelm you unless you are vigilant.
I'm proud of you, Love,Paula
