      Hi everyone, Fortunately there are lots of books available to  help us. A really good writer is Rob Wilson and Rhena Branch. Their work about Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is very good. CBT as it is often referred to as,  is a proven method by which Ocd can be treated. A gp can usually refer us for a course of CBT, but it can be a wait… The books get us started a lot quicker. It was CBT that helped me immensely.  I tend to feel that the Covid situation has exacerbates our tendency to worry… I  have actually written some books myself, under my pen name Marcus John Kim. As a result of my experiences with Ocd. Mine has been contamination and checking Ocd. Ocd is an enemy, and the more we know about an enemy, the better we are able to combat it. In the blue footer at the bottom of this web page has resources to help us too
