I suffer from obsessions. I hope you understand that your fear of drugs from the floor and not washing your hands before eating etc. is totally irrational. You have to understand that there is no validity to that possibility at all. It is extremely remote. Your estimation that it is 5% possible is much too high. Sorry for the crudeness of this response but your fear cannot be treated as if it is reasonable. Sorry that exposure therapy did not work well for you. Dont give up. I manage a law practice every day, maintain social relationships and have a great marriage in spite of my obsessions and anxiety. OCD is tough but dont think that you have anything other than anxiety. There is no risk in your situation.
