I have a new friend with OCD. He seems to do really well with only minor OCD stuff for a week or two then goes into a severe OCD episode for a few days. This last one he was convinced someone came in his room and contaminated it.
Last time it was something in a sandwich made him sick and he would be sick for years because of it. Or he had to rush a shower and not do his rituals to meet a girl and it set him off for three days.
Is it common to have OCD go to a low level then after a few days hit hard again....sort of in cycles?
Thanks for your reply
