OCD & Hope

There is hope when you are living with obsessive compulsive disorder. OCD can be exhausting both mentally and physically. I know first hand how difficult it can be to live with OCD. However with proper care I have learned to manage my illness and now I make it my life mission to help others with OCD/mental illness. That doesn’t mean that I don’t struggle or have hard days, in fact I still go to therapy on a regular basis. What it means is that I am working to continue to manage my illness so that I have control over my OCD versus my OCD having control over me. Remember that you are not alone in your struggles and with the right resources and treatment you can get control of your OCD.
