      I can only speak for myself but therapy was a game changer for me. A huge shift in the right direction. As above it’s important to find the right therapy for you. I did a sort of  ERP/CBT combo through the NHS.

      As stretched as they are the NHS absolutely nailed the approach for me. No hippie nonsense you might get with a private therapist. They assess you individually, identify the best approach and everything felt very safe.

      Re: private therapists. Earlier on in my journey I had one that told me turning vegetarian would help… I’m all for vegetarianism but last time I checked it definitely doesn’t cure OCD.

      TLDR: Therapy = good
