      I think I probably have OCD. I have what I think are OCD thoughts because they’ve told me lies, and yet I believe them, even tho’ know I shouldn’t. Does OCD tell you what to think? I try to remember that if its really OCD, that “my OCD is not me.’ I think this as many times as possible, but it’s so hard. How do you live with this?

        The main thing is to try not to ruminate or do compulsions. You can gain victory over ocd, but its not easy.
