As a gentle reminder, my policy is to no longer engage in one-on-one conversations about OCD (that’s the job of a therapist, which I am not!).
However, I do hope you’ll find lots of resources on my site.
For more guidance, feel free to email email@example.com with either OCD or HOCD in the subject line, and you’ll get an auto-response full of resources.
You are beloved, friends. If you have even the slightest suspicion you’re dealing with OCD, get a book about exposure therapy and dive in. ERP, though frightening, is the key to your shackles.
Your site is very helpful, I have shared it with one of a friend who was dealing with OCD. Can you recommend any book which will be best to learn more about ERP or OCD?
Yes! If you type “self-directed ERP” into the search bar, a blog post will suggest four different options! ❤️
I respect this! I have noticed one-on-one conversations regarding OCD end up being a reassurance compulsion. We know where that leads 🙂
