MY SECRET TO STOP OCD.

Standard

I said on my last post that i had a secret for getting over OCD. I will tell you what I do. A lot of people think that it is impossible to stop doing obsessive compulsive things. Last year I had a routine that I did everyday before bedtime that took about probably over 3 hours to do. I had to watch YouTube for an hour at least, then i had to sit downstairs with my parents for half an hour (both of these aren’t too bad because I like to do watch YouTube and I love to spend time with my family). But after that it was a nightmare, I had to go into the kitchen, touch lots of things three times then touch all the lights in the hall, then after that i would go upstairs into the bathroom and make sure all the shampoo bottles and shower gel bottles where closed, and even more stuff than that. Then the upstairs hallway, my parents room and eventually my room ( my room took at least 20 minutes). Anyway as you can imagine doing all this stuff just before bed it would take another 20 minutes to settle down again to go to sleep. I was absolutely fed up of doing this everyday for over 6 months that i needed to find a way to stop it. And in the end it was simple. I just needed something that i could do or say that would stop me doing all this stuff because after all OCD is in the persons mind. All I did was cut my routine down bit by bit by saying ” I swear on my family that i wont touch the lights tonight”. And because i had swore on my family I wouldn’t do it again I didn’t. But remember the most important thing is to cut it down bit by bit. I hope this post can help as many people as it can. Even if it helped one person to get better managing OCD it would be worth it because OCD is hell to live with. It stops you from from doing what you want. Anyway please share this post and follow me if you like it. Thanks for reading. Oh and please feel free to comment or ask any questions because i like to see what people say. Thanks.

WHAT ITS LIKE HAVING OCD.

OCD stands for obsessive compulsive disorder. It basically mean on some occasions i feel i have to touch the lights three times for example or put an item straight if it is slightly off center. I feel that if i don’t do it something bad will happen to something i love like my family. I of course know nothing bad would happen to my family but if i tried to resist i would get this nagging feeling in my brain and i would feel agitated until i did it so i would have to do it because it would stop me from going to sleep at night. My OCD always seems to get worse when i am nervous about an upcoming event in my life like visiting the Doctors or somethings going on at College which would be very stressful for me. These days i have a very good way to combat OCD most of the time but i will share with you my secret another time on another post. Thanks for reading.
