ERP can’t get rid of OCD, I am sorry to say (if you haven’t heard it before) that OCD is incurable. HOWEVER, you CAN get better to the point where the intrusive thoughts don’t bother you in the same way as the average person. ERP helps by training the brain to not react to the fear or thought and therefore over time the anxiety lessons and you can actually get on with you life. This disease is miserable. Have a look at this chap he’s I’m so great and his videos I find as so useful. https://youtu.be/fNxlpotyLRs Sending hugs xxx
Before I got a comment saying that ERP can cure OCD and that you can train your mind not to be afraid of the thoughts especially since there were times in my life where I didn't have OCD. I don't know what got you to say such, and I don't know if you have anything backing up what you're saying. I also don't know why this app is deleting comments that are actually helping people. My only guess is to avoid reassurance.
I am just going on what all therapists and professionals say - that unfortunately it’s an incurable disease. I did say though that you can get to a level where the anxiety is no worse than the average person - this will look different for every OCD sufferer as we are all individuals. If for you that’s no ocd then that’s great, at least you know you can be at that level. For me I have had times in my life where it has been silent but unfortunately it always come back. I wish you every luck on your journey xxx
