I've started this topic so that people can post anything positive that they have thought, said or accomplished whilst tackling their OCD.
Even on days when things are bad we are still accomplishing things and it's these things that we need to focus on and not the negative thoughts that the OCD introduces.
I'll get the ball rolling . . . . .
My major challenge for last week was to wear a skirt, prior to that I hadn't worn one for more than five years. I had stopped wearing skirts partly because of my contamination OCD but also because my legs are so swollen and blotchy. But I'm now able to say to myself "So what!" and I'm wearing a skirt again today.
The first day that I wore a skirt I kept reminding myself of all the positives of wearing a skirt and just let any negative thoughts drift through my mind without me judging them or reacting to them. It felt good to be out of jeans and into a skirt and blouse.
