Mark worried that he’d get sick from dirt or germs.

He washed his hands for hours a day so he wouldn’t get sick or contaminated.

He refused to allow visitors into his home, and whenever he, his wife,

or his children entered the house

he made them change their clothes and take a shower.

(Phillips, K.A – 2009)
