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.

    I managed to cook my first ever Christmas dinner without the OCD butting in. Took a bit of doing because of lack of repairs in the kitchen. I was even able to leave the kitchen without worrying about the food.

    Managing slowly to get a full night's sleep again, working on these anxieties and thoughts, and slept for nine whole hours last night

    In the last few days I've not only read, and touched, the word "soothing" many times without flinching, I've even written it.  Now I've written it again, so there!  OCD, go home.

    Today no trancing out and subsequently no disgusting staring and perving at idiots scumbags and youngsters

    I've been sorting out some more of the boxes etc and not felt the need to keep washing my hands in between touching items.
