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 surprised myself by managing to give one of the inspirational talks at the OCD Action conference without feeling self conscious or having any problems. I'm so glad that I didn't give in to my OCD.

    Tuesday I managed to go to a meeting in central London despite the tube strike and coped with extremely crowded buses without feeling contaminated - the first time in years. (though I did go to the wrong venue initially oops!)

    but instead of listening to my anxiety and letting myself feel useless and like a failure, I'm giving myself some time to chill and do some self care. i don't need to punish myself for being poorly!

    I've managed to wear the same nightdress for a week - a major achievement for me as for the past five years or so I've not been able to wear one for more than one night.
