  • "Pure" OCD

Everyone on this app has personal agency. At a certain point in your life, you have two options that you must decide regarding your mental illness: 1. Continue to let your OCD control your life and make you miserable or, 2. Trust your therapist/psychiatrist and the proven methods to combat OCD and learn life-long coping mechanisms to handle your mental illness. Don’t let your OCD bully you. Take no shyte. For 6 years I participated in reassurance and avoidance and made my OCD worse and worse… until one day, I decided to trust my therapist and trust the science. That was the best decision I ever made because my life has never been better.

How wonderful to hear. Well done! I am doing ERP at the moment....it is really hard but I will persevere. I am lucky in that I have only had this spike for 6 weeks. I get help as soon as I can and know it is hard but it works eventually. Well done you! Xx

Keep going! Don’t let your OCD dictate your life. It doesn’t own you; you own yourself.
