+ThePetersTrio Posted July 7, 2011 Share Posted July 7, 2011 (edited) A couple of different threads and a conversation tonight has me thinking about anxities and how they may relate to geocaching. I have to admit to being a bit of a germaphobe. This all began with a microbiology course in nursing school. (Don't ever take this course if you are even a little bit concerned about germs - trust me!) But geocaching has really helped me get over my anxiety around dirt and germs. No valium required! Although...being completely honest here, I still hate rummaging around in ivy for caches near the ground. I always find myself thinking about dogs and what they like to do in parks in areas where caches are hidden. EWWWW... I never cache without my hand sanitizing wipes. So maybe it isn't a 100 percent cure. But it is a good 75 percent cure. But I'm still deathly afraid of poison oak. And some of the stories I read around here about ticks. Uh oh...maybe that is only 50 percent cured. So do you have any geo-anxieties? How do you manage them? Or do you?  spelling Edited July 7, 2011 by ThePetersTrio Quote Link to comment
