I Clean Compulsively When I Am Upset

    I'm Not Sure Why

    But when i'm upset, i put that aggression into work, such as cleaning the counters and fridge. It almost feels constructive by not focusing on what the problem is. It feels like a quick relief, i tend to do this a lot.

    Mr. Clean Is A Metaphor

    I generally don't bust out the cleaning solutions when I'm upset, but I definitely cleanse myself of useless ****. Recently, I went through a pretty tough break up and I threw out seven or eight bags of garbage that had been kept (as mementos?) for years. I went through my...

    The Whole House!

    A couple of years back my son ran outside while I was in the bathroom and I couldn't find him for 45 minuets. He made his way back home after walking all over the street looking for me. Once I got home, I cried and cuddled him for an hour. After that I put him down for...

    Oh Yes.

    This is so true. I actually don't mind cleaning but my toilets and windows are never cleaner than when I have a fight with my sisters or with the SGT. I scrub the hell out of everything in the house when I am angry.

    Actually I Clean Any Time, But...

    I love to clean, so for me, it's a stress-relief, an energy outlet, and sometimes a boredom fix. But when I'm really shaken up or nervous, cleaning affords me a safe thing to focus on to distract myself from the issue that is upsetting me. It works great, usually- my house gets...

    My Friend Is Dating The Guy I Like And I Don't Know What To Do

    I've been told that I don't really seem like the type to fall in love. For the most part, it is kind of true. I ignore the celebrities that my friends fawn over, I don't pay much attention to the "popular guys" at school, and I've never actually been in a relationship. But that...

    I clean compulsively wen my parent are upset.

    If my parents get angry at me, I start flying around picking up random things and putting then away hoping that I can stall them, or possibly get them to forget about it since I'm cleaning
