My Uncensored Feelings about Cleaning

Does anyone here get major anxiety from cleaning or the thought of cleaning? I’d like to come out and express my disdain for it. It’s genuinely the thing I hate most about adulting, and I am certain that I am not the only one. Before I moved out, I considered cleaning a somewhat pleasurable activity. …
