Oh hey, OCD warrior here, just wanted to let everyone know it DOES get better. I haven't posted or even looked on NOCD for over 2 years now (until now lol) because I don't need it anymore. For such a long time I was at a place with my OCD where I didn't think I would ever get out of the hole my OCD had dug me into. I was hopeless, I really thought I would never get better, but with therapy and medication, I DID! No matter how much you feel or believe that you're stuck like this forever if you do the work I promise you will be ok. My HOCD and other OCD topics barely bother me ever anymore, even though that seemed impossible for a while. Please keep going, you deserve to live a good life.
