<sarcasm>Isn't OCD fun?</sarcasm>
« on: June 01, 2014, 02:55:33 PM »
Well, here I am. 1 year after being smacked in the face by severe OCD symptoms, not realizing what it was, going to the hospital for treatment, getting put on many different drugs, going through therapy, etc, etc.

I never realized that I really had OCD all along, just with much less severe symptoms. This seems to happen to a lot of people from what I have read.

I don't really want to go into exactly what my current obsessions are here, because it really doesn't matter. OCD will just make us obsess about whatever we fear the most, and what we fear the most changes over time, so OCD will change with it. What I obsess about today, might be different from what I obsess about tomorrow.

I have been seeing a therapist who specializes in CBT and that has been the best thing for me so far. I have learned so much about this disorder and it's ugly and frustrating tactics. I feel like I understand so much about, but yet still struggle to put my training into practice on a daily basis. Such is the struggle of OCD.
