@Anonymous Yes it does so well. God is so amazing I love how I have met so many amazing christians like yourself through OCD. I love how God uses your worst situations for good. That we can encourage each other in God's love. And i genuinely believe that as much as OCD sucks it has taught me to rely on God. It has taught me to love more deeply and to apprentice things better.
@Bex. I am so Grateful to God's love and goodness.

Hi Bex, sorry to hear that you had a scary night, but glad to hear you were able to recognize and catch your OCD before it got ahold of you. I definitely relate to your comment about how as terrible as it is, that OCD has at least made you appreciate things more and love more deeply. That’s great to hear that you have found something positive among all the negative impacts on our lives that OCD, or any mental illness, causes. Hold onto that positive outlook as a reminder of why we sought out help for OCD in the first place to be able to appreciate people and things more and love more freely and deeply without reserve and live our lives in general without all of the doubts, anxiety, low self-esteem, hesitation, compulsions, etc…that hold us back and take up our minds and our lives. Glad to hear that your relationship in God is helping you manage your OCD and giving you strength and positivity, something that OCD certainly does not make it easy to have. And yes, no one is ever alone in their struggle with OCD, especially if they’re here. It’s always great to see a thread where people are trying to help and support each other in their OCD recovery or with just the stressors of life in general. The struggle against OCD is never easy, even more-so in tandem with other mental or physical illnesses, but OCD can be managed to where those intrusive thoughts mostly stay in the background and you can live your life as you always wanted to or used to before OCD. It takes time, effort and strength to overcome the bully, but this journey does not have to be taken solo. ERP and therapy may be the tools of choice, but support from each other is also a very powerful tool in your arsenal. Take care, stay strong and best wishes to you all. You can and will defeat the OCD bully, do not let OCD take away your hope or belief in yourself.
