It ebbs and flows 💗
Ah okay. Basically it doesn’t stick around as before treatment? I guess im just trying to understand what life after treatment is like. Hope you don’t mind the questions.
@S.Abu I feel like recovery might look different for everyone? I've had experiences of my OCD finding other outlets/triggers/ behaviors that I had not previously thought of, like obsessive counting. The really positive thing is that 1) I was able to recognize it as a new compulsion. Therapy has taught me what to look for in new triggers and compulsions. And 2) I had the tools to fight it. Since I was able to recognize it early on, it didn't have much time to really become a habit. So, for me at least, it depends on what's going on in my life at the time, but the fact that I have knowledge and skills helps me navigate SO much better.
@S.Abu And it's never a bother! It's wonderful that you're in a place to be thinking about post treatment life 😊
Yea I was in recovery before, would get little triggers but wouldn’t last long or be very often.
