Yes!!!! I actually just made a post about this. I'm going through that right now. One analogy I heard about ocd that helped me was, think of ocd as a monster. When something happens that triggers you, it's the monster asking for food. Giving into compulsions, you're feeding that monster. The more often you feed the monster the bigger it's going to become and the more it will expect food from you. Right now that "monster" is hungry and confused because it's used to getting food all the time. Stay strong and the monster will understand that you're not going to give it food, it will get smaller and come back less and less.
