Hi there,

    It is possible to be in recovery from OCD. The compulsions can actually lose their grip, the less we respond to them. This is how I am at present. I’m on medicines, but live a relatively normal life now. What really helped me was Cognitive Behavioural therapy. My OCD is contamination based. I sort of stopped when the rest of the world started using antibacterials for covid. I also read and wite about my experiences, keeping a daily journal makes it easier for us to reason with, rather than just have it swimming around in our heads.

    There is a way through this, definitely.
