I actually had time to watch the show “Obsessed” and have to say I feel for everyone on that show. This disorder can take up so much of your time and can be really tiring. The doctors on the show all use the exposure technique and as you can see it really works. Great show, I will be watching.

Is there any one time during the year where your OCD symptoms really act up. I notice my symptoms getting worse around the winter time. This might have something to do with the busy holiday season and our cold cold winters. Sitting around thinking of things to worry about is not a good idea. I try to stay busy during these tough times. Try to take up a hobby or a sport. They main key here is to keep active and your mind strong.

There are many different OCD symptoms that can show up in one person. Studies show that it is common to show at least 3 or more symptoms of ocd that might be worth talking to your doctor about. My major symptom is washing and cleaning everything around me. This takes up so much of my time during the day, that, I was always late for everything. Some of the more common ocd symptoms are: Checking, praying, washing hands, counting, have to step on things a certain amount of times, not making right hand turns when driving, checking your locks. If you spend time worry about these or think you must complete these rituals to make everything “feel better”, This is the time you might want to see a doctor. These are all signs of OCD symptoms. I have been in therapy for years and can say I learned how to control it. Now I can feel FREE!

There is not one known way (OCD) Obsessive compulsive disorder is caused. Doctors have said it could be genetics or at early childhood exposure to dramatic situations. I can remember when I started to see my symptoms. It was a basic panic attack at school. I remember my heart pounding, breathing fast and feeling like I was starting to go crazy. OCD is just one of many anxiety disorders out there. I have been in therapy for years and with a lot of searching I can narrow it down to two events in my life. Besides being born with this disorder, it all depends what or if any certain events will flip the switch on. I remember watching  TV about germs and how it can destroy your body. I was told to wash my hands all the time. This has been stuck into my head for years. I didn’t want to be contaminated with whatever was out there. I was washing my hands 250 times per day. Washing and rewashing my clothes, dishes and door handles. This was not a life to live. The second event I can remember was the big scare about blood born illnesses. I would put 5 bandaids over a scratch to make sure nobody’s blood would land on my scratch. Sounds crazy I know, but if you suffer from this disorder, you know exactly what I am talking about.

I have been better now and would concider myself  “OCD free”. This took a lot of time, tool and coaching to beat this. There is hope. I am walking proof of it.
