Achievements

OCD affects everybody differently. What might be a molehill for one person can be a mountain for another. But for everybody, getting better is about challenging yourself and winning small precious achievements against the OCD bully.

So what have you been able to do today? . . . Have you been able to get out for the first time in ages or managed to do your CBT task or cut down on a ritual?

What ever your success please share it with us all. Feel proud and inspire us all.

    Yesterday I wore a skirt for the first time in more than five years. I was dubious exposing my legs because of my contamination OCD and the oedema but it went well and I felt good. I've even worn it again today.

    When I go for a walk I nearly always get caught up in a train of thought and, for some reason, then unthinkingly break into a flat run - it's exhausting.  But for the last three days I haven't done that.

    I went to use the public toilet while doing the volunteering and felt dirty as I thought my trousers touched the floor in the cubicle but I'm still wearing the same trousers today without putting them in the washing machine.

    Rocky the last few days, but I haven't had a serious crisis (one involving any other people having to do something to resolve the OCD issue, I mean) since Saturday night.  Praying for it to continue, for everyone else's sake!

    When I was doing the volunteering yesterday I started getting the intrusive thoughts followed by anxiety but I didn't try to find a solution for the thoughts that I was having.Kick ocd butt
