I don’t know if there a good side of ocd? I mean basically can I still be a good person, one who is completely harmless, even if I have intrusive thoughts. I try to focus on the positives but don’t feel any better. It’s grim.

I’ve been diagnosed with OCD about 4 years now. At first, I used to be in the same mind space as you. I had trouble seeing how my thoughts would in any way make me a good person. I’ve had the most vile and disgusting thoughts one can think of. But as years went by, I learned how to manage. I still get disturbing thoughts now and then, but I pay no mind to them now. There comes a time when you have to realize that you can’t let this constant ruminating affect your everyday life. You have to take action over your own life. Trust me that once you learn how to regain control over yourself, things will get better. It definitely isn’t easy. It took me 4 years to get to where I am now! And I’m sure I’ll relapse once more or mayhaps not. That doesn’t matter. What matters is how you handle your life.
