I did, but got quite sick. Tell me if this is an irrational OCD fear: I fear that what I track in on my feet from going to parties and stuff got onto the floor such as illicit drugs or something like that, although I never took those, then when I ate off the floor, I was ingesting those things. Just to be clear, ingesting these things is a huge fear of mine, so understandably I am quite upset by this whole experience.
