      My life for decades – no exaggeration – has been dominated by avoidance and compulsions. I KNOW it’s irrational and I also know I fuel OCD with neutralising thoughts etc but I’ve never been able to stop doing them. Without passing the buck – not entirely – I had some really bad luck with therapists in the past. One did me a lot of harm and wrote some very disturbing things which I saw on medical records I accessed only two weeks ago. I’m hoping I’ve finally found one (private) that not only knows about the reality of OCD but cares about me.
