Anyone who’s been around obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) knows that completely erasing OCD from a sufferer’s life is unlikely. I’m not here to imply differently.
However, I do think people can feel much better than they do now. I believe we all have health barometers that indicate when something is out of balance. We feel the pressure building inside us. As individuals, we’re wise to recognize our own barometers and learn from them.
Many people with anxiety disorders have thought “it’s all in my head.” After getting a diagnosis of OCD, I’ve heard folks express great relief when they realize they’re “not crazy” and begin to recognize the sneaky ways OCD obsessions blossom in their mind.
